    Investment high but moral low

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAverage wage for the business of this type
    High investment in the Brewing department and new Kegging plant
    Investment in training in some areas

    ConsAnnualized hours contract poorly thought out and inflexible
    Investment is reducing staffing levels in some areas
    Poor management techniques causing low moral
    Very poor teamwork and commitment amongst employees
    Poor work life balance since annualized hours
    Graduates need to learn to accept advice from people who have a great deal of experience after being in the business for many years.Sometimes theres more than one way to skin a cat

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccept feedback from the people who work for you [not just you union employees]
    Sort out your Annualized hours system for a better work life balance

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
