I worked at Royal Mail full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

People at the top really want the change, there is good camaraderie amongst peers, and also with the new graduate programmes, the company is trying to become more professional

Cons

Extremely political, cannot push through the really important stuff...progress is difficult as well, as due to the politics, its not always a meritocracy

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Royal Mail full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working outdoors in all weathers.
    The customers on my round, I am on first name terms with most of them.
    Getting out of the office.
    Office banter.

    Cons

    Being treated like idiots after over 23 years of service.
    Too much bullying by management.
    Employing casuals without proper checks.
    The job is being made more difficult.
    It is a young persons job.
    Lack of respect for and knowledge of health and safety regulations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and let us just do the job, you are not really needed.
    Do a delivery over a period of a few weeks.
    Stop penny pinching.
    Start our jobs earlier again.
