MY REVIEW OF IFDS
Contact Centre Associate (Current Employee), EssexSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: you will make friends with people in the same roles as you. (shared hate)
Cons: no parking only senior staff, 30 min lunch, team leaders/managers are very two faced, extremely strict rules/procedures.
This company does have genuine potential, however I truly believe they are making progress in the wrong direction.

The way they treat us staff is apualing in the contact centre,
they give you sweets and fruits once a week and believe it changes everything.

The salary is completely unfair.
I work in the contact centre and we work extremely hard, and – more... reicveded £12,500 as an apprenticeship, Now I am full time staff they have only increased it by £750. Which has caused major outrage and 90% of staff looking for new roles.

They only care about the management companies, but not us staff.

Although they treat us call centre staff like paupers, they beg us to do overtime because they are understaffed due to people leaving after seeing what IFDS are truly about.

I have heard that other departments enjoy working for the company, but I can assure you that IFDS will break you eventually. – less

Typical Day at Work
Senior Quality Administrator (Current Employee), ENGAugust 20, 2013
The role is quite varied, I have learnt over the years how to develop my soft skills and I also communicate this to colleagues in order to develop them.

I have to deal with difficult conversations regarding employee issues, i am used to hearing confidential information from employees and from management meetings.

I review CV's for the Pension Department – more... to help with the recruitment onto the team and I also deal with return to work and overtime forms.

I regularly communicate to senior management, team leaders and quality coaches on the team.

The hardest part of my job is being pulled back into the operational side of things, when I first started I was a subject matter expert and now I am stepping away into HR based tasks.

The most enjoyable part my job is being able to use my skills the the fullest; communication and organisation. – less

Good friendly atmospher
2nd Line Desktop Support Analyst (Current Employee), BasildonAugust 9, 2012
Pros: local for me
Cons: no permanent positions
I have an excellent relationship with all my colleagues and end users.
Fast pace rapidly growing and always changing organisation.
Always changing work no day is the same so group policies and access is something we are always learning
The best part is leasing with the end users and executives
The hardest part is supporting 500 users on my own in one – more... of our other offices – less
