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

    Pros

    While Bpu purports to be a flexible company with a focus on employee wellbeing the reality can be very different depending on your manager and there does not appear to be any support if you come across one of the less supportive ones. I have had some great managers at Bupa have been incredible in allowing me to be very flexible while I returned to work after having my daughter (albeit in roles that were not exactly ambitions...

    Cons

    Great people and some great leaders - just hope they're your leader. If they're not then it can be pretty awful. Also salaries are very much below average and the career progression is incredibly haphazard. 'Flexible' is lip service. In actuality, you may have a manager who tells you that you can't leave early to pick up your child and work the rest of the day from home and you'll have no recourse for this.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more aware of some of the toxic leaders you seem to hold in such high regard while managing to discard some of the great ones who people look up to - and will follow. Does the place need a clean out? Yes. But you are also putting a lot of faith in leaders who are widely considered lazy, incompetent and even downright snakes while letting some fantastic ones who would attract the talent you need walk out the door.

    Poor management, no team work, staff not sharing information, managers are not helpful they are just looking after themselves in order to keep their jobs. No clear direction, hard to talk to your manager they are always in meetings, if you enjoy working late till midnight this is the right place. Old systems in place massive use of excels for accounting ( like we are in still in the 90's) lack of investment in IT, too...
