    Awful Place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe canteen is quite good

    ConsBullying management, no work life balance, do not care about staff, clearly add false positive reviews on this site - look at reviews from 5 mnths ago, they are shocking, all recent ones are positive!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a life outside of work

    Good to work for!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGet lots of empowerment in role. Benefits are great.

    ConsLack of process and consistency across organisation can be frustrating. Some politics with senior managers but pockets of this, not generic across all of organisation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to review departments, lots of people seem to be doing the same thing ut in diffeent departments. Need to be consistent on salary levels and bonuses.

    Enjoyable place, flexible, bad management

    Sales Advisor (Current Employee) Wolverhampton, England (UK)

    ProsVery good salary (if your hitting sales), great people, flexibility

    Consmanagement, security, pressure, political, etc

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease care more about security, enrich your employees via regional managers and area managers, figures do matter, however be more realistic in terms of targets as you are losing a lot of good salesmen at the hand of pressure.

    If your face fits

    Anonymous (Former Employee) Livingston, Scotland (UK)

    ProsFun people, excellent benefits. Some hard-working, intelligent people who cared.

    ConsIf your face fits, you will go far in this company. If you have a good manager then you are stored, but there are a lot of managers that have been there for years, part of the wood work and they don't know how to manage.

    As a company, they fire fight, no strategic plan.

    People were managed out there job, who should have been as they were good at there jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
