Competitive and unsupportive culture. Constantly changing management with a lack of consistency in approach. Business goals constantly changing. Incompetent upper tier management who get paid far too much in comparison to everyone else. Advancement and improvement in pay virtually impossible.

I strongly recommend against working for Studygroup. Staff that work hard only get burdened with more tasks and responsibilities. Staff often work over thier hours and many have left due to work place bullying. Higher management have no regard for workload and often change thier mind last minute.Students are just a money source and higher management don't really care for thier overall wellbeing.
Pros
Reasonable pay and decent teaching staff
Cons
Worst place I have ever worked, High turnover of staff, bullying culture which is enforced by higher management.

Good company to work for, genuinely interested in trying to meet employees' needs. Managers are approachable and flexible where they can be. Excellent, very supportive colleagues.

Don't waste your life away in the worst company in Brighton and surrounding cities. I wish Study Group sucked only in Brighton but just do some research, and you will find that they suck wherever they are! You will be overworked, underpaid and unappreciated every single day. NO training /support and NO personal development for admin staff. Promotion? Only through biased selection. Well connected people get the vacancies. It's a whom you know kinda place, nothing to do with merit or skills. A terrible and embedded blane culture which managers hide behind in order to have no accountability. Absolutely NO cover for staff sickness or holidays, your work will be there waiting for you til you return. HR and Payroll are useless and the most disorganised and disconnected departments I have ever seen! The only positive about Study Group is the location, nothing else!

My manager was one of the best I have ever worked with. But overall there was some prejudices between staff members. Typical day: Very busy Learned: all about VISA and Immigration Hardest part of the job: Leaving Salary reviews: could be better Most enjoyable: friends I made

Study Group is one of the best international higher education sector organisations in Brighton. There's none of the politics or drama you see with younger companies - senior colleagues aren't motivated by self-advancement but instead by the objectives of the business and its customers - the students. Staff here are encouraged to take responsibility for their own professional development, and seek opportunities to do so. The company supports its staff with this. Several members of the team I work in have come from other roles or areas of the business. The senior leadership team are approachable and capable, and conduct themselves professionally and intelligently. This means they are respected, and this professional respect goes down the chain, which contributes to good leadership across the board. Overall it's an enjoyable and rewarding place to work, with a great international company culture.
Pros
Subsidised canteen, pension, social events

The staff are friendly & welcoming, the staff like to socialise with different departments. They don't like promoting within the company and will generally get new staff members instead
Pros
Good teams

Incompetent senior managers who are unable to identify the root of the problems. A terrible work culture from top to bottom. Greed and stupidity and a complete lack of integrity or understanding at the top. A refusal to deal with the head office managers who have been responsible for the mess, but still hold onto their jobs. Don't work here.
Pros
Your next job will seem better
Cons
Everything

Enjoyed the learning experience of a totally different business sector and found the MD and Executive Team a delight to work for. Everyone was very helpful and friendly making my time there as a temp, very enjoyable. Believe this to be a good place to work.
Pros
Friendly, supportive team
