    I have been working at Travis Perkins full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Accessible senior management, very strong ethics and brand values, some great teams and brands, paternalistic culture. A proudly British company.

    PS Glassdoor - John Carter is the CEO; Geoff Cooper retired at the end of 2013.

    Cons

    Company needs to grow into what it has become (a £5bn+ member of the UK FTSE 100). Systems and processes not yet up to the consistent standard needed to increase turnover and profitability in the next few years. Some unwillingness to listen to and trust your team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the high paid management consultants, fad-based initiatives (e.g. in the IT Department) and short term decision making. Make sure the skills, behaviours and processes in the excellent brands and teams are replicated into the stragglers.
