      Pros

      Offer opportunities to their call centre employees to develop into other areas of the business

      Cons

      It could be hard taking full advantage of the exposure to other sides of the business when in the call centre since priority would always be meeting KPIs (understandable)

      Pros

      Diversity Quite autonomous once settled in to a role. Allowed to speak out and make changes at a local level if you offer up constructive behavioural ideas. Ownership of your role to make it better if you offer up constructive behavioural ideas. Well rewarded for efforts

      Cons

      Chasing that world class point of difference can mean reinventing the wheel many times over in short periods of time. This can be refreshing sometimes but also demanding when national expectations to change quickly are sent through from a higher levels or specialist department thinking every depot can just adapt and get on with it, often without consultation from the people who must make it work at the coal front. Dangle lots of carrots for work life balance but most roles are full time so if you dont get in quick you'll miss that boat. Salary staff expected to go the extra yards and more and more all the time. Very policy and document driven company, can be a bit robotic at times.
