    I worked at Heineken U.K. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office culture is inclusive. High quality professionals, hard working but friendly. Regular performance reviews and recognition of good performance by way of bonuses and other roles within the organisation.

    Cons

    Salary, at least in Edinburgh location, not as competitive as other UK locations. Having said that, Edinburgh isn't such an expensive city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some better quality products, that will help with the margins.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Accept 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
