Mostly a great place to work...but no company is perfect!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dunfermline, Scotland (UK)

ProsBetter World Books has great values.
It's a relaxed place to work but work always gets done
Customers are very important to the company.
There are some really good people to work with.
Overall it is a great place to work

ConsApart from discount on the books there aren't really any benefits, there is a Stakeholder Pension but the company don't contribute so no incentive to join up.
Some of the senior managers have no people skills and have very little management experience which reflects in their management styles and abilities.
Pay is not competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing, i.e. constantly trying to be better. Invest in your staff, all the way from the top, down to the bottom.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
