Employee reviews

Ben's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

I think Ben has a great balance of flexibility -- it's about as flexi as you can get while still having some structure. As long as I don't have calls (which, of course some people have far more calls during core hours than I do), I can take breaks whenever I need and make up the time later!

Giving us the option to choose when we work in office instead of telling us when we have to.

The people, the benefits, the opportunity, the fun, the passion, the team lunches are all amazing!

About us

A world working at its best

Work and life will always be intrinsically linked. But we're making sure the relationship is a healthy one.‍

By empowering employees to choose the benefits they actually want and need, they start to feel seen and heard— not just as employees, but as people. They find purpose in their work— not just in what they put in, but in what they’re able to take out. And they feel more connected, to each other, to the company, and to the values the business rallies around.

In return, they reach and give back much more, creating an infinite value exchange that builds a world working at its best.

Why work for Ben?

We believe the Ben team can change the way people offer and use employee benefits. All the while, our team has access to career-defining growth opportunities.

Our growth & aspirations as a business mean that you’ll have the opportunity to work on new and complex problems every day. You’ll work with autonomy, learn through hands-on opportunities, and have a notable impact on our business.

We will support you in your journey. We have established career frameworks in place, generous learning budgets and 3 personal development days each year to support you in growing your career here at Ben.

Flexible working at Ben

Here at Ben, we know there's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to work, which is why we're dedicated to providing a flexible and inclusive approach for our employees.

Ben is hybrid first. Recognising the evolving nature of work, we’re committed to fostering a flexible and inclusive working environment. 

We see great value in mixing working from home with working in the office; we believe it supports well-being and better work-life balance, whilst having time together supports innovation, communication, productivity and a sense of belonging. Plus, our offices are pet-friendly, so bring them along too (the team will love you for it)!

Most of our teams work 2-3 days in our central London office.  Our Engineering team is our only combined team, with both remote-first and hybrid roles.

Last, but by no means least, we know that people at Ben work hard and contribute a huge amount, so we offer generous leave allowances (28-30 days depending on length of service + the option to buy or sell) - and there's also a work-from-abroad scheme so you can make the most of your time away.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

We are organically growing a brilliantly diverse, inclusive and respectful bunch of people we are extremely proud of. However, we know that diversity and inclusion requires thought and attention, so we are building our DEIB strategy to include: 

  • Building structured career progression and compensation frameworks

  • Implementing consistent and objective interviewing processes

  • Investing in recruiting platforms that have strong DEIB credentials

  • Regularly capturing DEIB data through surveys and using insights to shape our people & talent roadmap

  • Hosting DEIB breakfast & learn sessions to share insights, actions and get feedback

  • Recognising the needs of different employees, such as the option of swapping for days of celebration that are significant to you, flexible working options and flexible benefits!

What do we think of Ben?

Ben live and breathe flexibility! A really cool company with a fantastic bunch of people.
