    Pros

    Great working environment, with the determination to be inclusive and nurturing to all. This ethos is true for their customers as well as its employees.

    Cons

    If you are a field based employee, as I was, it can be a little onerous to get to the Manchester Head Office. If you're Manchester based, it's a fabulous place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Employ more people with Motor Trade experience, as they will be able to talk to them, as your main customer, in the language that they can understand.

    Pros

    Fantastic organisation that really cares for its employees. Opportunities are there for the taking you just have to make that move yourself. Staff nights (Christmas, Summer, seasonal etc), there are far too many pros to list

    Cons

    Can be very fast paced so if you don't like constant change this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your good job.
