    Pros

    Good terms and conditions, good opportunities to get promoted and earn more if you want yo work in London

    Too many arbitrary targets which are not focused on customers needs. Feels like the company wants to decide what customers want to buy, won't listen to what customers actually want.

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits. Best of both worlds; govt and private sector

    Post Office undergoes redundancies way too often. Post Office Security has a large turnover of staff. No job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the way the Post Office Security Div. is managed. No continuity. Experienced staff leave in the their droves every 18 or so months

    I have been working at Post Office full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked here for two and a half years and can say it's the best job I've ever had. My boss and team are really positive,supportive and encouraging. I've been given opportunities to work on projects to broaden my experience and also been supported to gain a qualification which has helped me achieve my goals and get a promotion. The environment is great, post office support a lot of charities so there is always something to get involved in. There's a lot of positive changes happening which is making life interesting and exciting!

    Cons

    When I tell people I work for the post office they complain about post...

    I have been working at Post Office full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The most 9 ot 5 place you'll ever work (head office). Looks good on your CV, at the moment anyway.

    Cons

    Some of the most incompetent people thrust into leadership or director-level positions. once-strong team decimated accordingly.
    Zero grasp of the future. For such a historic business, it's so super-short sighted it's not true.
    No leadership, just self-promotion, upward management or spin around modernisation.
    The business would be broke within a year without the £1.34 billion government subsidy
