I have been working at Royal Mail full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Steady job with no real skills beyond fitness and common sense needed

Cons

Victorian Management style, ineffective Union, bulling and harassment by management is ignored, in fact its built into the ethos of the company. No people management skills anywhere and work force is seen as a drain on resources that must be pushed harder and harder rather than used as a talent pool, or a assert that should be engaged and motivated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your workforce as an asset and listen to their concerns, do not get your information from just Yes men, or the Union. They all have agendas and they are not always the same as yours and the workforce. Send senior managers unannounced or under cover into the workplaces all over the UK and get a real reflection of the state of moral.

    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
