    I worked at BSI Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing i can think off

    Cons

    worst middle management i have ever seen, outdated equipment, really poor staff retention, too much politics especially by middle management in the expense of test engineers, not much training that you could improve your career and too much micro management without any help so you can't improve either way... after you go through all the suffering not much salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    have some control over your middle management.

    I have been working at BSI Group

    Pros

    Flexi-hours, ok benefits, good location, and that really is just about all i can say is good about the place

    Cons

    Well where do i start?? If you have read any previous reviews about this then you're probably in the loop already. Disgustingly below average salary for the type of job we do. The salary advertised is not what you actually get and still far and away below industry standard, and the constant lie we keep being fed about "we're going to be doing a pay review" just isn't cutting it I'm afraid. "Test engineer" job title...

    Pros

    Good Pension & benefits Good location in Loughborough

    Cons

    Poor training and support. Low wage for the actual responsibilities and time pressures. No one is offered the £28k advertised Negative atmosphere at Loughborough that is infectious. A lot of test engineers have left or are looking to leave. The test engineers are a good bunch. The reason for the negativity is well documented in other reviews. No overtime and rarely paid. No inflationary pay rise. Purely results...

    Advice to Management

    Most things are covered by other previous Glassdoor reviews by test engineers based at the Loughborough site. The list is too long really. The poor training and support, lack of equipment and negative atmosphere can probably be only solved by a complete re-structure at Loughborough.

    I worked at BSI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really nice peaceful location on the edge of Loughborough university campus, benefits are ok, flexi time allows a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Loughborough has major problems which are only going to get worse due to poor management. A lack of suitable testing equipment makes testing difficult and coupled with the tight schedules you are given for jobs this can lead to 'breaking' jobs, and being blamed for this even where there are issues outside of your control. A culture of bullying by lower management has been allowed to develop with many engineers forced...

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the bullying and petty, vindictive behaviour of lower management, and try to make your engineers feel valued instead of treating them with contempt.

    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working. Job can be interesting. The company is fantastic with great benefits and a good pension.

    Cons

    It is not an enjoyable place to work at the moment, the Loughborough site is not doing well and management are looking for people to blame. This leads to the engineers being placed in the firing line. Middle management do not care about the quality of work or your well-being, only that jobs are signed off on time, and the site manager doesn't know or care what the engineers do. Management style at current is terrible,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop threatening people's jobs and ignoring the problems. A large number of staff have left, and more are going to leave. These reviews have not been written by one person, so stop the witch hunt to find out who is writing reviews. Listen to staff about pay. You call us the best kg the best, yet pay an average of £4,000 p/a less than your competitors, this is one major reason that the staff feel undervalued.

    I worked at BSI Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None. Honestly the worst company I have had the misfortune to work for

    Cons

    I believed bsi was the pinnacle of the engineering world, but middle management force engineers to betray their integrity, in order to get the job done so they do not get the blame from above,then when the truth comes out they push the blame down to those below them.

    Advice to Management

    Loughborough is in dire straits as I am sure the financial indicate. Look at the antiquated equipment,high turnover of staff and give your staff anonymous questionares without the fear of retaliation from vindictive low level management
