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

    Pros

    Great team and great middle managers/team leaders. Office is fairly friendly and different departments work together decently.

    Cons

    Leadership team is very out of touch with the rest of the workers (except Food GM/Finance GM). No real management from them and when there is, it is micro-management. Salary/bonuses/commission are noticeably below industry standard. No training, promotional, development opportunities. No culture in the workplace. No celebrations. GMs are always out at meetings, lots of strategies talked about, nothing is done. Employee attrition is monstrous.

    I worked at BSI Group for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very diverse range of clients across a broad spectrum of products. Many of the products offered by BSI are cutting edge environmental, IT security and Food Safety. And certification can lead improvements in how clients operate their businesses.

    Cons

    Feels like a satellite office - all thinking and ideas should come out of London. There is a lack of culture, feels like you are going through the motions rather than delivering value for clients.

    Pros

    The Clients interesting and varied projects to audit. If you are an experienced client manager/lead auditor don't join this company

    Cons

    Management have no idea most our ex food auditors who are unable to assess or implement risk management. Attitude is very much to work Client Managers to burn out and forget that it is the CM that is the fee earner. Are not capable or able to provide support to CM's, back end office admin staff are empowered over CM. Australia branch has very high turnover of CM's as all good CM's normally only last a maximum of 1.5yrs
