    I worked at Stagecoach full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Generous salary and a free bus pass

    Cons

    High turnover Working in Stagecoach was like going back 20 years in Finance. A very old mindset with no visible plans to change the culture or processes. Employees either tend to have been there 10+ years or are enticed by the salary and then leave very quickly (I wasn't the only one to hand in my notice during my short time there). Support was non-existent, possibly due to senior staff not being sure what they are doing and so being unable to advise. Rework of analysis required due to lack of consistency across teams which could have been avoided with effective communication. It's an extremely quiet working environment. Teams do not interact or seem to know who each other are (this being despite most staff being there long-term). Made it very difficult to make process improvements. My team were aware of improvements that could be made, the suggestions I made they thought were fantastic and they agreed with - yet had never raised with the reporting manager!? There were weeks when I had nothing to do. Weeks. This despite being new to the team and taking longer to carry out work as I became accustomed to their ways of working. I raised it with colleagues asking what else they do and was simply told 'look busy'. Appreciate that there are always peaks and troughs within finance but when there's no work for such long periods of time that needs reviewing.

    I worked at Stagecoach full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The only good thing about stagecoach is the apprenticeship scheme. It is well organised and it was one of the best starts into the trade

    Cons

    If you have a family, forget about them because every depot has an unforgiving shift pattern, if the money was competitive it might be bearable but its not. The T&c's are terrible to.
