    - Good base salary compared to similar roles at other companies

    J'ai travaillé chez Domestic & General Group à temps plein (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    The management are fantastic (in Nottingham at least).
    The people on Whirlpool are great to work with.
    The benefits are good such as healthcare, cycle to work, pension scheme etc.

    Inconvénients

    The hours are all over the place.
    The people in other departments can sometimes be rude and unhelpful.
    Not much communication for senior sections of the company.

    Conseils à la direction

    Sort out other areas of the business such as Reso, and PR as many of the cannot be bothered to help and it gets to the point where agents spend ages trying to sort a customers problem that isn’t there job purely because other departments are unhelpful. Also, sort out the relationship with Hotpoint as they are absolutely abysmal.

    Avantages

    D&G are alway willing to look at ways to improve, and they have undertaken huge transformation of their products and sales techniques which is great.
    Great salary for contact centre agents.
    Good opportunities to develop if you have a can-do attitude and can prove yourself.
    Lots of great, passionate people, especially in the call centre - everyone wants to help each other out and the One Team value really comes to life in this part of the business
    Local discounts on food are excellent, the free insurance plan is a great benefit, and discounts are available on additional plans too.

    Inconvénients

    There's always promise of change but the stuff that impacts the employees never seems to, which makes it feel like you're being paid lip service and the senior leadership don't really want to change.
    Some salaries aren't competitive such as team leader, so we don't attract the high quality people we need in their kind of roles.
    D&G want people to embrace the company values but nothing happens if people don't so they lose their impact as some employees, including some senior level ones, get away with treating other people poorly instead of taking accountability for their own failings.

    Conseils à la direction

    Review salaries for non agent roles, look at similar jobs in other organizations and make yourself competitive, until things change on a cultural level, better pay is your only lever to keep talent.

    Point de vue négatif
    Désapprouve le PDG

    J'ai travaillé chez Domestic & General Group à temps plein (Plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    Wimbledon office location is good.
    Free coffee/tea. Fruits once a week
    Decent local discounts
    Some talented people who are interested in working towards propelling the business forward, but mostly they get sidelined or move on to other roles/companies.

    Inconvénients

    Management pretends to listen to your concerns, but then nothing happens
    Understaffed, especially in Staff functions like Legal, HR, Procurement and Finance. This is due to high-turnover.
    Low pay and pay rise is minuscule. Bonuses are rarely what they are promised.
    Employee turnover much higher than industry and you come to know why
    Poor planning of IT infrastructure
    Blame culture - departments are busy pointing fingers, rather than finding a common solution. Higher management turns a blind eye to this.
    Many departments work in isolation, unwilling to work with other departments to protect their budgets.

    Conseils à la direction

    Invest time & resources in areas which are lacking. High turnover is not going to get resolved unless the culture of the organisation is changed.

    Avantages

    Free fruit, healthcare, pension, discounts in nearby stores and overall good benefits package
    Comprehensive training and on-boarding with down-to-earth people
    Learning on the job and applying training, sharing best practices encouraged

    Inconvénients

    They will pay you well, but always look for reasons to part pay you
    High-stress environment, not for the faint of heart
    The processes around health and general well-being are convoluted and long
    Inter-departmental communication problems and assumptions leading to errors are a common occurrence

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue to try finding a balanced approach, keep having dialogue with those on the lines as well as those in the back-end.
