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

    Pros

    I have been at ANS for 6 months now as an apprentice. I though because I was joining as an apprentice I would be cast aside into a classroom however it is quite the opposite. We receive weekly training and integration into the service desk allowing us to learn on the job and train to pass our first professional exam, this was the ITIL foundation. I am now training for my next exam Microsoft technical associate, server...

    Cons

    Banter can sometimes be taken too far. Communication isn’t he best. Upper management is hardly ever visible in the managed services wing.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for upper management to be occasionally move visible in the managed services to wing. More frequent updates from the office of the CTO team as I find their work interesting however we only see occasional updates on yammer or at the all staff. Continue the apprenticeship for future years as it helps as a stepping stone for people who have a interest in IT to get a career in the industry. Easier way...

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

    Pros

    Nearly 4 years at ANS and nearly 3 years being on the 24/7 shift. Having come to ANS straight from college joining the start of what would be an amazing Apprentice Academy back in 2013 at the age of 18, what have I learnt being at ANS? Having come straight from college I found was a challenge for myself since I still had my 'college' head on and not a proper work set mind, I struggled to stand on my feet at the start...

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

    Pros

    Directors of the business fully engaged with the business strategy, customers and staff. Open door nature to discuss personal / work issues with Directors and Senior Management Quarterly staff forums (off site) are amazing. Great way to inform all staff on the direction and performance of the business. Staff who over perform in their duties are recognised by their peers Great Apprentice programme which accelerates...

    Fruit bowl runs out too quickly!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the staff engagement - it works wonders. Don't underestimate the power of the quarterly All Staff meetings.

    Thanks for leaving such an amazing review, another great advert for us! All Staff meetings are a crucial vehicle for us to ensure that everyone is up to date with where the business is going. The last one was particularly great, so we need to build on that even further. The reason ...

    I have been working at ANS

    Pros

    ANS is definitely a truly unique company to work for! There is no dated hierarchy, every member of staff is valued and has a voice here. Team members are invited to share ideas and can add real value to the team, whether you're in management or an apprentice. What really stands out for me is the passion that runs through the organisation, I can see that people here enjoy what they are doing, are at the top of their...

    Cons

    Well, no cons that I can think of, no workplace is perfect, but ANS comes pretty close in my opinion.

    I have been working at ANS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have worked for ANS for over 14 years, starting from a Junior consultant and working my way to senior management, at every aspect of my career ANS have given me the opportunity to perform and better my career. The culture is the biggest positive aspect of ANS, with an open door policy to senior management every idea for improvement is listened too and discussed at every level from the massively successful apprentice...

    Cons

    It can sometimes feel less flexible that it did in the old days in terms of getting things done, however as the company has grown up in the past 7 or 8 years the need to adopt industry standards has slowed things slightly, however moving forward this is becoming less of an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what we are doing!!
