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.
Reasonable pay and decent teaching staff
Worst place I have ever worked, High turnover of staff, bullying culture which is enforced by higher management.
No room for development and only selected few gets a biased opportunity for a CPD. Every year they send out a survey and never focus on negative points given to them. They easily dissolve a department with the backing of HR and without suitable consultation in place so you mean nothing to them even if you worked several years and supported the organisation . Poor service management and people with no skills get the jobs they don't deserve ie operation manager become head of student experience !!!
You are thrown into one of the most unprofessional and unstable companies out there; DO NOT DO IT EVEN IF YOU ARE DESPERATE FOR MONEY, THERE IS BETTER. From my first day it was clear there was no management. No one knew what was going on, the protocols that were being used were disgusting. No training will be provided, the management don't care about you or any team you are part of, they will not help you in the long run. The practices that were used by staff that had been there 10+ Years were those that were being used by people who would normally only be a week into training in their profession. The management will always praise you for working hard (being overworked) then do nothing to solve the situation and pretend like nothing is wrong. I could go on for hours about this. A lot of old time staff there are very toxic and have management wrapper round their fingers; will also do the bare minimum. If you like to work hard and do things right, this is not the place for you. If you want to do the bare minimum, be unsafe and be underappreciated, then this is the place for you! Good luck people.
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!
DO NOT APPLY! Any other job you apply for, will be better than this one - trust me! You will be overworked, underpaid and unappreciated every single day.

I have been working at the Brighton office for some time. While the people who I work closely with are delightful, the company as a whole is a mess. Staff are low paid despite having enormously complex and important roles within the company. Worse, we are infantilised by managers with incentives like hmv vouchers and trips to lasertag. There is little or no progression, with almost every job advertised going to an outside hire, and the executive team wonder why job satisfaction as at 55%. Worst of all, the Global Executive Team force us to celebrate them at every opportunity, as though bringing Crispy Creme twice a year and handing out roses to women on International Women's Day will make up for the boring and fragmented lives we have to lead. Can't wait to find something new.
No progression, un-meritocratic, terrible pay
The organisation needs transformation. There is a vision and understanding of what needs to be improved but no ownership of delivery. Also very top heavy organisation which treats frontline staff as an afterthought.
Lots of growth in the pipeline
Poor management and too many directors/heads of dept.
Worked for SG Brighton a while ago now as an education executive. The management team where very hands-off, instead relying on untrained and inexperienced mid-management to run the show. Examples of undervalued staff at every level and also terribly low salaries (note they rarely advertise the salaries offered!)
Bad management and poor pay

Jobs at Study Group
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.
Your next job will seem better
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.
Friendly, supportive team
