    I worked at BSI Group full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits package Lovely dining area Made friends Great pay

    Cons

    For the great pay be prepared to sacrifice your overall well-being. An insane culture of bullying runs rampant, especially within the group marketing department. A great deal of "old heads" are at the helm and have no clue how things work or how they actually get done. Pathetic mean girls, sociopaths and narcissists run these halls! If you don't enjoy gossiping, backbiting or other bullying tactics, you can't sit with them. Mind you, any person with self-respect and a life will be glad for the distance. Too much work put on the hardworking. Good people leave after only a few months. Good managers are severely put upon by the "Boys Club" that is senior management.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, that's about it! Worked at MK facilities quite good. Car parking on site but need to be there early to get a space!

    Cons

    They welcome you with open arms staying they are flexible and say they encourage staff to suggest and implement new procedures but they aren't interested and the training is awful! Too many people have been there since the day dot and don't actually like change when it comes to it! Very spiteful atmosphere too which suggests staff are unhappy! I

    BSI Group Response

    March 13, 2017Operations Delivery Director GLobal Medical Devices

    Thank you for your review, I’m sorry that you feel this way about BSI particularly with regards to the atmosphere that you mention. We encourage all our employees to raise concerns with their line manager or HR so that we can address such issues. Based on the positive feedback that we receive from our employees about the atmosphere, we do not think that this is representative of BSI. One of our key initiatives that we have underway obtains feedback from employees on what makes BSI an ‘extraordinary place to work’ and we aim to roll this initiative out across the wider business to help continue to positively engage with our employees. With regards to training, we pride ourselves that our training is industry leading however we recognise that there is always room for improvement in other areas, for example local training and some procedures. I am pleased to say that we have recently invested significantly in a new content management system which will be launched shortly to support the team and our clients. This is an exciting time for the team, and our employees – both established and new to the business, have been at the forefront of driving these significant changes so we’re confident in its success.

    I have been working at BSI Group

    Pros

    Nice office with friendly atmosphere and subsidised cantine which has been recently refurbished. Some great people, good benefits and even better annual kick off event. Moving in the right direction with a new focus on the employee satisfaction and career development. Brand carries weight in the industry and if you are passionate about BSI's product offering it would be a good company for you.

    Cons

    Too many sales managers who are over-paid and ineffective. Promotions rarely come down to merit. Company initiatives don't seem to filter down and get realised by managers; they are too worried about hitting their own figures/ goals to care about the welfare of their teams and do not listen despite an open culture being encouraged. Lots of back stabbing and 'carrot dangling'; managers don't keep promises which is ironic given that this is one of the company's customer first principles.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Relaxed atmosphere. It could easily be outstanding.

    Cons

    Promise the earth, but ultimately fail to deliver. Very unfair treatment, some employees work from home 95% of the time, but most, even doing the same role, are refused the opportunity. Promises of flexi hours and home working are simply not kept, even if they benefit both the company AND the employee.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good working conditions in a modern office. The company is changing for the better with clear direction from the CEO.

    Cons

    Some problems with old, has been, top management selecting their equally old favourites on the basis of a sob story, these employees are often incompetent and/or lazy but get rewarded with high salaries whilst the rest of the team pick up the work. ('old boy network' springs to mind, they look after each other whilst missing competent highly motivated employees) Huge salary discrepancies for the same role.
