      Work life balance - most people are out the door by 5. Free fruit.

      Cons

      Going downhill fast

      Pros

      Some great people and a business that still succeeds even whilst being broken

      Cons

      Blame culture, cover your back ALL the time. Senior Leadership don’t know what’s going on, don’t agree on anything and make it impossible for decisions to be made and for change to succeed. Old school and risk averse, they want to become innovative but this is cut off at the knees with the politics and culture. Extremely political.......favouritism is rife. Some people in leadership roles really shouldn’t be. One BSI is laughable, silos everywhere. Great place to work is laughable, agile working is a joke, unless your manager supports that it ain’t happening. They say one thing and do another. Unfortunately it has become a bad place to work and they are losing staff left right and centre. They can’t keep new staff and they can’t keep the good long serving staff either. Sad to see BSI going downhill so fast. It’s simply broken!

      Potential destroyed by Management System (Ironically)

      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.

      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.
