Student Services Officer (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJune 23, 2014
Pros: extremely friendly environment

Admissions Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee), LondonApril 28, 2014
Pros: managing people, data analysis
Cons: little room for progression
I have been with the company for nearly 5 years and have gained a great deal of experience in the job and of the sector where it operates. I have developed new skills and gained substantial knowledge of sector-specific products, internal operations, managing people etc. A typical day at work involves delegating work to subordinates and assisting them – more... with queries, assisting members of staff with questions, running departmental reports, managing workload, reporting back to senior management on performance and other, contributing with ideas on how to improve the current processes and identifying weak areas.
Occasional data entry is the least favorite part of my job even though I am very good at it. My favorite part of the job is running reports, data analysis, reporting findings to senior management and contributing with ideas on how to improves the processes currently in place. – less

PROJECT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee), London, UKDecember 6, 2013
Pros: professional expansion, taking on different high level projects, working with a diverse work force, promotion as a result of doing different projects not limiting to my team/department, becoming a source of company information for new starters and employees
Cons: not been able to control the speed in which my skills were sought after
A typical day at work for me involves me accessing the sales report from all our campuses- Birmingham, Manchester, Toronto, Singapore, London and Online; This was to incentize the best sales person for the week. I also monitor the sales pattern of my team and keep an eye out for the product that are most selling as it gives me an insight on what training – more... needs are needed. I use the information based on my analysis on the sales report to select program consultants/mentors and pair up with Business Developers in need of it and use the sales information for interdepartmental sales strategy.

I proceed to organise team meetings with other departmental heads and follow up on pending projects while handling all human resource matters for the local (London) and international based Business developers( Africa and Asia).
Acting as a buddy /Following up on new starters and ensuring they have access to all relevant shared drive and links to start working effectively.

I liaise with program stakeholders and work with the IT department in recording departmental training videos while ensuring out clients and customers are up to date with our latest educational product and its unique selling points.

I have learnt the skill of multitasking, intense project management under strict deadlines, working with a diverse team and providing quality service internally to colleagues and externally with clients. I came to accept that I am synonymous to the information hub for the International department and my ability to execute projects effortlessly resulted to other managers from different departments seeking for my skill in managing their projects especially if it is a complex one.

The most enjoyable part of my job is been able to do so much and yet deliver quality regardless of time frame and quantity of projects while also feeling relevance in been part of an organisation that was providing quality education to the world. – less

QA Manager (Current Employee), Finlayson GreenApril 19, 2013
Pros: good salary & career advancements
Cons: busy environment
One of the most rewarding places I have worked. They give due consideration for skills and ability. Unlike most local companies where lack of paper qualification is always an issue to climb the ladder.

A great place to hone my skills - The job here is not for quitters. Requires a strong character who can cope with a multitude of tasks.

Treated as not one of them (Current Employee), SingaporeMarch 22, 2013
Pros: occasionally good staff activities probably
Cons: unlimited
I am in there to witness that most of the comments mentioned are genuine. Nothing to censor, nothing defamatory.

You are expected to be a star player, if not, you cannot survive.

All humans are born similarly, we have our unique traits. No one should be higher than anyone. If you believed in this value, then I am afriad this is not the right place – more... for you to look forward to.

Lastly, if you enjoy listening to screamings, here is the best place for it. – less

High turnover rate coupled with biased preference towards staff who are in sales or doing useless quality assurance
One of the Schools' executives (Former Employee), SgMarch 17, 2013
Pros: if you like on-the-surface pros
Cons: can i don't comment?
To be frank, our current HR manager has did his very best for the school. Thumbs up! for his world-class contribution.

Nevertheless, why is the attrition rate so high?

It is because of how our top Management biasedly love only people who directly contribute to the bottomline and those in the paper-only(nothing but theory) QA dept. The MD is so proud – more... of some of the loyal staff and quoted her favourite "disciple" all the time...

The enjoyable thing working in Singapore LSBF is its good colleagues, but they are all leaving day by day. Those who have worked so hard and value-added to the school is not even appreciated. Sad!

That is the reason why i tender my resignation but i know they are pleading me to reconsider now...will make them pay for it. – less

Finance Head (Former Employee), SgMarch 13, 2013
Pros: nothing much to rave about, really
Cons: plenty
The accounts are in a mess, top management listens to people who are not experts in finance

Yet Finance refuse to do things that are related e.g ir8a matters, things linking to inland revenue, sdf, application internet banking on payroll e.t.c.

It is all about paranoid n undue stress

Business Development (Former Employee), SingaporeMarch 5, 2013
Pros: good colleauges
Cons: extremely messy and not worth the pros. anyway your colleagues leaves faster than they join
Their Global Marketing Director is not professional in handling people. He does not treat people with respect. The turn over at their Singapore office is very high. People stay around less than 3 months.
Even HODs. Everything is extremely messy.
