    Pros

    Great product and very loyal customer based. UK MD tries to make a good place to work, but you are expected to work 50 hours a week.

    Cons

    Group is run by the spoilt son of the founder. Business makes fantastic profit, but is run on a shoes string meaning understaffed and NO work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    you say all the right things but still always ask for the impossible within an unrealistic time frame AGAIN and AGAIN. You don't live what you say.

    Pros

    Friendly motivated people, committed to both their customers & the company. Supportive line management. Great culture of inclusion.

    Cons

    Staff like to stay at the company, so whilst retention is great, the result is fewer vacancies or promotion opportunities than the average manufacturing company.

    Company recognises this & trains & develops staff for potential future vacancies within the business, or regretfully for an external career move, if that is right for the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being a people-focused industry within a manufacturing & sales environment.
