    Exciting

    Production Operator (Current Employee)
    Horsham, England (UK)

    ProsIts a great company to work for. You get looked after with lots of benefits. Good pay and lots of chances to progress. Good schemes in place to train you up for roles that you would like to work for in the future

    ConsLots of housekeeping which can get quite mundane but understand why it is a must.

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

    Conshaving now work 4 years at a rivel waste company i see how far behind biffa where, And how badly run biffa was and how they run up a 1 billion pound detp. spending money on routing software's that cause madness for two weeks only to go back to using the old routes,if i think back to the waste going to land was just Criminal over 50% cardboard some days.

    Major steps forward

    (Current Employee)
    High Wycombe, England (UK)

    ProsOpen access to management, flat structure, focussed business, 1st class colleagues, great brand and still a market leader. Generally, people know what's expected of them and the business is now pulling everyone in the right direction. Although large, the business still has a relatively family feel and if you have issues you want to share with Senior Management there is normally someone you can approach. Focus on Health and Safety is a massive plus with CEO and management team totally committed to keeping us safe in our working life.

    ConsHas had a difficult time over last few years but coming back strongly, press speculation over future is unsettling

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pressing on with current programme, actively engage the workforce, take a leading role in the industry

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