Does DAC Beachcroft have a pension plan?

Pros

Decent market-related salary. Fair company pension. Opportunity to volunteer in work time for charities. Good training opportunities. Environment friendly and community-focused company. Equal opportunities champion. Great colleagues in IT with little to no ladder-climbing at the expense of others.

Cons

Bonus scheme for non-fee earning staff in IT would appear to be far more limited than what the legal fee-earners can attain. However the work hours for such IT 'support' staff do allow for better work-life balance.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! Great to see active on-the-job involvement and a real hands-on approach.

Fair company pension.
