As all of you ex-BITS (Business Information Transmission Systems Ltd) employees seem to be enjoying yourself using this post as a not-so-private forum (and we are all enjoying what you are posting) we thought we’d hand it over to you completely!!!

I understand how you all feel and am sorry it ended so bitterly.. i too am owed a large amount of money by bits dating from August and got out before ithey owed me even more. I was interested by all the comments on here.. but it seems to get a little out of hand towards the end.. there is no need to have a go at other engineers or mention names i know all these people and have worked closely with all.. apart from VT, AP and MC.. who are the guilty parties in all of this.. there is no need for biterness towards people who are still with BIts although i do feel like they are clutching at straws by doing so and this loan business is outrageous.. but everybody who worked at BITS( not including the obvious) are good people and even if they are still there at the end of a day they need a job..it is just a job.
everybody did a fantastic job and i know the ones that are still there will carry on to do so its just a shame it will probably end badly..
There are some people i would like to mention on here and that is the girls in the office- Nicola , Steph and Jo who held that place together for weeks while management screwed around.. they dealt with bailifs, furious customers, confused engineers, and basically picked up the phone all day to the people chasing payment.. They refused to lie to any engineers despite what they were told to do and you dont see them bitching on here… and one of them is still there trying to do her job.. so out of respect to her dont let it get too personal… i know it is hard.. I wish you all the best and hope that you all get something out this mess that we have all had to endure..

Thanks Steve, you and many others have said the same, but I find it’s a problem I have learned to live with.

I’ve been told first two weeks in January, signed on, on tuesday just gone, just have to wait and see, job center took a lot of interest in the fact we only got a e’mail, took photocopies and said this is not goverment practice and will look into the matter further.
