    I have been working at Biffa full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Its 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

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Biffa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pressing on with current programme, actively engage the workforce, take a leading role in the industry
