    Pros

    Not much...
    If your upper management
    Shareholders

    Cons

    The greed of upper management is the downfall here, i love the way they portray the business as being loved by the customer... So why so many complaints??? i tell you why because the call centre and national accounts promise the world... when in fact at ground level.. warehouse..pond life we call ourselves because thats how we are made to feel, have pressure heaped upon them.. warehouses shutting down with job losses.. their work being put on another warehouse maybe 2 others.. no extra staff to deal with it.. shoddy forktrucks breaking down consistantly,
    10 hour days plus late finishes BUT no overtime paid (maybe at flat rate if there is} and i'm sure i saw upper management actually getting blood out of a stone..
    Someone.. or some people are getting rich off the back of a lot of damn hard workers and loyal ones at that.. WAKE UP.
    They have a mission statement something on the lines of.. EMPLOY RETAIN.. PROMOTE.. TALENT.. TEAM.. off the top of my head. This statement is total rubbish... There is ZERO chance of promotion and no matter how hard you work or get results.. no matter what is said in your appraisals YOU WILL GET STEPPED OVER BY OUTSIDERS WITH NO EXPERIENCE IN THE COMPANY OR BUSINESS.
    All the glossy pictures and wonderful words on Bunzl's websites are a joke.. in fact misleading and embarassing.
    Left after 10 years of loyalty and promises turning to dust... again and again....
    Im not the only one who says this.. there are employers stuck there who agree... BELIEVE ME...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WAKE UP... SPREAD THE WEALTH.. AND SUPPORT THOSE WHO ARE ACTUALLY WORKING HARD FOR YOU. STOP THE GREED AND SELF INTEREST.
