    I have been working at Royal Mail full-time (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 Management

    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.
