What employees are saying

"I have worked in both of the Brightpearl offices: they both have their own special feel, partly due to the different people, but both offices are a place I want to be. When I started at Brightpearl, I was one of the few WFH'ers, not because it wasn't allowed, just because people were so happy to be surrounded by the rest of the team and the culture (and the beer fridge!). Brightpearl works because the people who work there want it to work – due to this they can and do trust us to deliver and achieve however best suits us, either in an office, at the bottom of the garden, or the well provisioned and comfortable office space in town (certainly a mixture of the two). I have nothing negative to say about the way Brightpearl treats its staff, I have never been happier in an organisation."
