    Brilliant people to work with, its a shame the business is stifled by worldwide internal politics as it could be great.

    Pros

    The people you work with are all passionate about enjoying their time at work, and making the company a great place to be. Its supportive in a sense of being able to achieve what you want, in terms of education and personal development.

    Cons

    Opportunities to progress outside of the sales team are few and far between. People stay for long periods of employment at OD and upward promotions don't happen frequently. Benefits in monetary terms are poor and levels of pay are not particularly in line with the rest of the logistics industry at middle management levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to break away from the reigns of Europe. Having a UK based VP Supply Chain should help this, however the restrictions placed on the UK business prevent it from being as great as it could be. Also reward employees with improved benefits, £300 per year bonus for a Depot Manager is not an incentive to deliver exceeds expectation level results. £3000 might be.
