    A company with full of opportunities........

    Team Leader (Former Employee) Heathrow, England (UK)

    ProsA great company with friendly working environment.....great opportunities for progression in short span.....timely training for staffs of all levels......great hierarchy system means more opportunities.....the best I like is the INCENTIVE after hitting targets every periods.

    ConsEven though audits are for good and is a must.....some times create pressure on all levels for a quite long period till audit actually happens. Also a department is being judged for the rest of the year just based on the audit of one day...which can be good or bad based on the mood of the employer that faces the auditor....

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management right from the cluster manager to site manager is good .....the one- to -ones at individual sites need to be made more effective for the overall goodness of the site .....keep doing good....All the Best.

    Great company with great people

    Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee) Dunstable, England (UK)

    ProsUpper quartile pay scales with very good overall packages. Rapid progression opportunities available as well as opportunities to gain experience in more than core role.

    ConsVery high pressure to deliver unrealistic targets at times and some very dubious promotion decisions made on occasion. Progression not always based on merit but overall, nothing more than you would find in any other large organisation

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly people, relaxed and informal working environment, great benefits package with competitive bonus and Sharesave schemes. Great variety of brands to work with and progression across the company is actively encouraged

    ConsLocation of Head Office is difficult to reach by public transport and being in the middle of an industrial estate means it is not easy to get to shops etc at lunchtime

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue innovating

    Fantastic place to work (or it was when I was there). Really caring culture, friendly people and good work ethic.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people are salt of the earth, the location is easy to get to, the work is interesting and the money so so...

    ConsSenior management a bit clueless, in the main its not cutting edge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your staff (past & present) and look at some of the choices you've made. With hindsight - were they the right choices? Think hard!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
