    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good Leave Package. Good Client Managers

    Cons

    I’ve been with BSi for just over ten years and honestly at first I would have recommended this job to anyone, the variety of clients, people you meet and industry sectors was and still is amazing. The clients and people we meet has not changed however, the workload now is unmanageable and really impacts on family life / work life balance and actually is getting worse not better. Most client managers are tired and morale is very low especially within our team. Over the Covid 19 pandemic the messages which come from the CEO are really encouraging then you speak to your line manager you are told a different story which is not as encouraging and “you need to deliver more”. The PDR process is really demoralising in as much as you are made to feel your not doing enough to “meet” your requirements although you’ve worked yourself stupid over the year. Sometimes you don’t deliver the days but this can be down to a client cancelling or the office messing the diary up. The office is another thorn in a Client Managers side, I’ll be honest this needs a good shake up as it’s not really very efficient and definitely not helpful. The organisation actually makes you feel like a robot with no feelings rather than an actual human being. The amount of KPI’s you need to deliver on makes you feel under immense pressure. One negative comment from a client and BSi won’t back you but make you feel like you’ve failed. Truthfully I really love the job but will need to leave as I think it may cost my marriage or my health (or both). I spend nights finishing reports, planning and answer clients because there’s not enough time in the day and admin time has been slashed. The workload and role has become too much and I feel broken To stay I would want to see more support for CM role, less monitoring of people and more time to plan with full days of admin instead of half days. It should be one of the best jobs ever but actually is a real nightmare.

    I worked at BSI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well looked after in terms of holiday package, sick pay (if needed) and there is little 'pressure' compared to most sales roles

    Cons

    A company whereby management have little to no empathy or connection with the "workforce". Even during a worldwide pandemic....... A sales director with little to no interaction with sales people beyond showing face to the powers that be... More and more good people will leave as promises of progression every January tick box PDR become a distant memory by late January. If you conform, you will succeed at BSI but be prepared to leave your own mind at the door...
