Poor management.Had an issue with equipment manager then lied which resulted in a meeting blaming myself.Poor help with sick days regardless of the issue Allowed more time off for dependancy for other people than you are for your own health

Very old school management

Good if you want to work long hours, 5/7 meetings per week which are very repetitive and unproductive. Good brand, terrible customer services and management.

Fun and exciting, but also challenging.

What is the best part of working at the company?For my day to day job team work was essential. As a network engineer with multiple roles, skill sets of everyone member of staff was very important. With continuous growth, with every opportunity taken we were all engaged and happy to work for a company we new would do well. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lone working at night was difficult, because you can't get all the help you may need. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Fun and exciting as new technologies came along we were happy to see development. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Some days or weeks routine maintenance and other times network build or fault finding.

Absolutely disgusting company to work for. Constantly being expected to work past your finish time with no extra pay. Bully culture amongst managers. "Mandatory" 15 hours overtime required every month. Drilling into concrete etc without the correct ppe

Good really enjoyed it and happy. 1 year. Good people to work with and it was work from home with 2 days in office so great balance. Team will look after you but only thing is hard for progression.

Long hours

Long hours and high workload . Very stressful. Poor support from management and annoying push to upsell and get referrals. Money is okay but not worth it

Fun workplace

100% recommend, only issue is it is no longer working from home role which was promised during covid and we are now expected to go in twice a week. Staff and management are amazing.

Lots of travel

Lots of chance to make decent money however higher earning reps are doing dodgy things which managers overlook as it’s making them money be prepared to do a lot of travelling

Overbearing managers that constantly tell you your doing things wrong even if you have a great day. Managers only care if your doing perfect as you effect their bonus. Also managers sit on their phones not doing their jobs


Your not unemployed


Literally everything

Waste of time and effort!

What is the best part of working at the company?Very clicky, unsupportive Management, KPI’s that even experienced agents can’t hit because they make it impossible with rubbish discounts available for customers. Don’t waste your time!! What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Underhanded Management, impossible KPI’s at times. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very clicky, if the face doesn’t fit kind of place. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Stressful, more bad days than good.

Could be brilliant, challenging times ahead

Overall a great company with lots of interesting work to get involved with. Lots of great people unfortunately being managed through lots of change by a leadership team that are unable to communicate their vision clearly, bringing two large organisations together seems to be beyond the capabilities of those in charge.Pay and benefits are in line with other companies in the industry and a very relaxed approach to WFH which is great.

Good experience

It was good working here, great manager, nice team. Sadly got made redundant due to the site closing but my time here was enjoyable.Lots of prizes to keep people motivated and a generally nice atmosphere.

People great, targets not so great

Good place to work at first until outsourced and merged with 02, frustrating is the cut backs on commission as now earning less than was 5 years ago, don't know many jobs where you are put in the position earning less than you did 5 years ago doing the same job role

Jobs not safe no security, worked very hard to be asked to a call and told the job is no longer required. To find out that the job is still being done just not by is


Great team


Not a secure job

Worse company I have ever worked for

Stress, stress and more stress. Constantly changing and whoever talks out is treated bad within the company. To much work for one person, no wonder staff turnover is so high and if you do stay expect to have no life.


Fuel card, bupa.


Long hours, management is poor and have no experience on the tools.

Challenging, Rewarding, Dynamic organisation

If you are looking to learn, be challenged, and have a passion for customer service then Virgin Media is a great place to work. There overall package is in my expeeience veey good. However the last few years have seen significant change to the business. Change brings uncertainty and this can cause a high degree of stress. One thing you can be assured of is you will learn alot. Its sink or swim here.

Great place to work

Great environment. Work hard but well rewarded. Regularly took part in training and there was always a passion for self development. Always kept abreast of how the company was doing

Ok place, questionable leaders, poor pay

Office and people are gold.Leadership chop and change their ideas. Immediate managers just about the numbers.Pay isn't great for the stress or hours worked.
