Plenty of challenge and interesting projects, a relaxed and effective management team and an unusual and worthwhile business to work in, I have enjoyed and learned from my year at PPF.

Varied age range of employees. Depending on the department you work in, quite a fun and relaxed environment to work in. Management are pretty easy going - as long as the job gets done and you deliver what you promise. Nothing too strenuous about the IT roles. Most enjoyable parts of the job were the social gatherings.
Pros
Pretty decent game/relaxation room
Cons
No car parking space if you drive in!

Relaxed environment with friendly people. A typical day includes meetings in the morning every day regarding updates followed by going on the phones and dealing with customer enquiries regarding their pension.

I joined PPF in 2014 at their new offices in Croydon, it started well and I was happy to have landed a decent job, the premises were good and the salary was not bad. After three months they said thank you but no thank you and let me go, three weeks before Christmas...

PPF is good platform for your career. I got a chance to work on challenging project and implement my knowledge/skills. Always the work I got was interesting and learned a lot of new things. All colleagues are very helpful and supportive. And yes you can balance your work life and personal life with PPF.

Initially good place to work, were keen to progress individuals through training both internal and external, relaxed but hard working, one central location currently close to East Croydon. Mostly good people to work with but when things are not going so well they need to listen to the staff on the ground. Flexible working, WFH, hot desking.
Pros
some good benefits, reasonable working hours
Cons
Decision by committee

A typical day at work - a busy workplace and always on your feet and dealing with queries daily. I've learned more about the company. Management - Very supportive. Workplace Culture - No problem, very friendly. The hardest part of the job - Doing the housekeeping side in the office is very challenging. The most enjoyable part of the job - is meeting and socialising with new people.

This is a company and role in which there was an opportunity to progress for those who chose to take it. Salaries were low however and company and role seemed more like a stepping stone to other things.
