    I worked at Apex Group full-time

    Pros

    City centre location Health insurance scheme

    Cons

    Overwhelming sales growth with devastating and aggressive cost cuts which is driving good people out. Risk teams seem to be for 'appearances' only. In the industry a long time and have never witnessed a model like it. Poor salary, poor annual leave (22days), poor pension, poor work life balance Toxic atmosphere and arrogant senior management. Promotions and pay depends on your likeability factor. Pretend to flatter their egos and entertain their nonsense. It worked for me! Amateurs and clearly bluffers, stone age systems, cheap computers, cheap printers, embarrassing IT helpdesk, company is ruled by sales talkers who have no concept of reality or how to run a business. No staff are replaced, promotions are annual with little to no wage increase. Bonus is no more than a few percent even if you're one of the chosen ones. Small kitchen with a microwave and fridge and seating for a few people people. Options are eat at your desk or eat out every day. Agree with other reviews, very limited toilet facilities for a few hundred people.

    Hard to find any...rapidly growing company but somehow has even more rapid staff turnover

    Cons

    great to promote and give out nice titles as apparent career progression. comes with a massively increased workload but with little or no salary increase...

    Pros

    Good learning experience as you will get exposure to the full process. Globally, employees are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours, low team morale, average pay. Cost cutting galore - there is little to no consideration of the repercussions.
