    Pros

    Application to call back was pretty quick. The job was relaxing, and hours were always available.

    Cons

    Their opening hours was 6:30a. If you had a morning shift, you were mostly likely there at 5a

    Advice to Management

    Some shift supervisor overused their authority and made other do their jobs

    Pros

    Progressive, strong ethical and performance oriented culture. Open communication and empowerment of managers to take decisions. Relatively flatter organisation structure and networking skills highly valued. Meritocratic with a strong emphasis on relationships and people development.

    Cons

    Heavy focus on process can sometimes come in the way of innovation and fast decision making. Sustained outsourcing of finance activity over the years has led to constraining of career opportunities for senior finance staff.

    Advice to Management

    Promote innovation, easier decision making. Think harder of the impact on people of the constant change in the organisation

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Many opportunities for advancement and to branch out your career. Training opportunities everywhere. Foster an environment that cares about your health and work life balance.

    Cons

    Americans hit a ceiling in their careers. Majority of executive leadership are British.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your strong U.S. Leadership and reward them with Executive opportunities, so the business isn't constantly reminded that they are second-tier to the British employees.
