    I have been working at First Central part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working here!! Its a great place to be due to the open door policy with the senior management who sit within the teams and engage with all levels in the business ! I work around extreme talent for such a small company and feel respected in my role by the senior leadership team ! Business plan is ambitious but exciting ! Salarys are good for working in a small town ! Benefits are great 25 days holiday and birthday day off ! Lots of social events !

    Cons

    Parking is not great in haywards heath although the station is near by this is not the right soultion for everyone. I found a great app to park locally though! Onsite cafe would great for sandwiches made fresh and nice coffee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the plan .. make sure all areas have the right resource to deliver ... but keep doing what your doing ... the people are just as important as the customer ! Fantastic new senior leadership in 2019 showing results already !
