    Pros

    good salary, local location, good co-workers and great benefits like getting food waste for dirt cheap and staff discount.

    Cons

    management have their favorites and they get away with doing less, section managers do very little, some managers do nothing at all apart from strut around on their phones all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get higher positions to do more work and help normal employees out a bit more.

    No opinion of CEO
