    Excellent company to work for

    Cash Manager (Former Employee) Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)

    ProsFlexible working, laid back management style, encourage personal development, great staff shop!

    ConsSalarie is low, and there is very little opportunity to advance upwards

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont call the roles, manager and accountant etc, as this leads to the perception that the salary is poor against other insitutions. However most of the non management roles, do not need to be a wualified accountnant, they are quite clerical.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Ok if you are office based. Field based roles have no progression

    Territory Management (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Prosinnovation and quality of products is fantastic.

    ConsNo bonus across company. No prospects unless geographically mobile. You cannot progress in a field based role unless you have worked in the head office for circa 2 years. Pay could be better and rewards poor

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trading on your name as you are losing good people. Get competitive! Competitors pay better and have bonus and better car schemes. If you work extra hard for 6 months you may get a £20-100 voucher but only if you are top of your team!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    supply chain planning manager

    Supply Chain Manager (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Prosworking with great people with high level of mastery and leadership
    work life balance can be managed, but difficult to achieve if you are going for a promotion
    scope of roles are huge, even if you work for a small brand you still manage a huge budget
    p&g manages its supply chain end to end, therefore opportunity for role changes and learning new skills are endless

    Consabove the department management level (band 2) it becomes very political
    promotions and career growth are more linked to your network rather than your performance (which i guess is true in many big companies)
    salary are ok but not the best...

    Advice to Senior Managementthe grow from within culture is good but limit the real innovation and change of culture when needed... maybe worth it to reconsider that

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great company to work if you're the right person, willing to take a lot of ownership from day one.

    Operating Department Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsA lot of ownership of day one.

    ConsHeavily entangled in it's processes which stops people to think and innovate for themselves

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to take a step back and think about how the IWS Program is deployed to enable individual's innovation.

    Poor prospects for those unable to relocate

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Weybridge, England (UK)

    ProsFair remuneration for level or responsibility
    Great additional incentives, including holidays
    Constant product innovation

    ConsPoor work life balance
    Limited opportunities and exposure for employees based outside of Brooklands office

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time in the field with selection of employees to understand that we cannot do everything for everyone all the time

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
