There's a team feeling to everything Midcounties does and there's a definite sense that you're valued as an employee. It's a very ethical company, so you can feel good about that. It puts a lot of effort into training and professional development, so you can benefit from all those opportunities. Pay is good and working hours are flexible when you need them to be. Promotion prospects are also pretty encouraging.
Its IT infrastructure is pretty old and shaky and could do with an upgrade.
Employee perks include discounts on eye tests and also on bikes.
