    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Various reasons to work at BSI: 1. Well defined work profile. 2. Good on job training 3. Decent salary in comparison to the counterparts 4. Brand Value 5. Incentives 6. Well balance work pressure

    Cons

    The cons are as follows: 1. Not much of industry exposure to the employee via management 2. Negative air around for the ethical human being. 3. Money driven (though well justified through perks for employee) 4. Most important : there is lack of motivation from senior management in terms of career growth and professional prospects of the employee. Hence, this is where any...

    Advice to Management

    Should give their employees more industry information and exposure. Should have various programs to motivate the young employees, by giving them an idea of future prospects.

    Pros

    Great environment, yet just too unorganised

    Cons

    Business transformation programme very unstructured left due to not support by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support to staff who are brought in to learn and build a career.

    Pros

    Free Car Park, some nice people amongst peers.

    Cons

    Middle and Senior Management along with a mindless bunch of HR staff have made this probably the worse company you could have the misfortune to work for. . If you are good at what you do, your manager is likely to feel threatened by you because they are generally work shy and lacking in any common decency. The manager in question, is likely to go out of his or her way to...

    Advice to Management

    How can BSI managers sleep at night, with the humiliation they have caused team members. It will be interesting to see how things will develop as its unlikely that this level of bullying can be sustained as it is only a matter of time when the truth about this organisation will finally come to the public and tax payer’s attention. In summary. Your will have to be utterly crazy to work for this company. If you are...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Recognise patterns: if the turnover of certain teams is quite high, the problem (usually one or two people) is still there. Need passionate people with creative minds. Need less 'jobbers' and 'lifers'. Stop hiring sociopaths and narcissists!

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

    Pros

    The business cares about personal development, well-being, growth and innovation. There's an open and collaborative team culture with passionate people whose work feels valued.

    Cons

    Not all teams in the company feel as valued. On-going change in priorities creates difficult and unreasonable expectations from some of senior management.

    I worked at BSI Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Reasonable choice of benefits, good on site café/restaurant facilities.

    Cons

    It is sad that in recent years, the toxic management techniques employed by middle management have created a stressful work environment to the point where a significant number of staff have been forced to either step down, or leave the company. Senior management appear to take little or no interest in the well being of staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please take more interest in your staff. Have a close look at those departments where long established and talented people have left the business over the past couple of years, understand why this has happened and take some action.

    Nice building Decent cafeteria but with very slow service Great, friendly people (excluding senior management)

    Cons

    Sales: Do you enjoy working with narcissistic sycophants? Do you like having no say AT ALL in how you work? Do you like being micromanaged? Do you enjoy having to tell your boss EVERY. SINGLE. THING, ALL. THE. TIME? Do you enjoy having no autonomy in your role? Do you think that senior management should call members of your team liars, causing them to be so demotivated/anxious...

    Advice to Management

    You laughably claim to be a great employer but don’t seem to care or be aware how much damage your senior managers (using the term loosely) are doing? Micromanaging is NOT big or clever. Threatening employees is disgusting. Calling employees liars is disgraceful. Maybe check your staff retention figures once in a while, that might reveal something important...

    Pros

    They have a Good Business / Brand

    Cons

    Poor management culture, big promises of training, support etc, delivered much less. Very poor communication , very critical of individuals. the reality is it starts with the senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up, and stop hiding behind the name.

    I have been working at BSI Group full-time

    Pros

    The people are the primary reason I stay combined with a belief in the service we provide. Ok when it comes to contract flexibility.

    Cons

    There is no work/life balance. 60 hr plus working week is not only the norm but expected (tho never said out loud by senior management). Financial pressures of the executive team should never be the problem of the people in the trenches as they are handsomely rewarded off the back of our labour. We should be able to focus on the safety and efficacy of products, providing a quality...

    Good brand. Good parking place to build up your CV.

    Cons

    As a lot of reviews mentioned: Zero career progression in here unless boot-licking your managers. Internal politics is shocking, talented people left due to unable to fulfil their career's ambition as a result of political wrestling with all departments. Worst middle management and lowest staff retention rate I have ever seen. Too many managers. The number of managers is even more than the number of staffs...
