Insider review

(based on 13 ratings in 2019)


"There is a huge emphasis on work/life balance here. There is always plenty of community work going on, as well as events in the office that really aid socialising and morale."
Entry level, Coventry
"The culture is great. Everybody is relaxed and usually enjoys flexibility of work and day-to-day life. Everybody in the society is very open and honest so asking someone a question will usually give you a very deep insight into their area."
Graduate, Coventry
"The culture in my department is brilliant. We focus quite a lot on employee engagement and regularly host social nights/days out as well as team activities and team building exercises. The culture in IT is more laid back than other departments within the business, but in a good way."
Mid level, Coventry
"It's a friendly operation with everyone working towards a common goal. Although there is a clear hierarchy in place, everyone is friendly with one another. The society promotes socialising in and outside of work. Lots of people live locally and there are very few people who commute long distance to work here. Some departments see more teamwork and cooperation than others and therefore culture varies greatly across the society."
Graduate, Coventry
"CBS has a great culture with very friendly and supportive staff. The organisation is very member focused and puts customers first, making you feel good about the work you are doing. There is a flexible working nature and a focus on bringing teams together with new smart working spaces. There is a good social environment between the graduates and areas of the business."
Graduate, Coventry
"There's generally very good teamwork and good relationships with colleagues. The only thing that could be improved is more socialising outside of work."
HR, Graduate, Coventry
