Does Co-op offer family leave?

Pros

The maternity pay and the sick pay is the only benefit to the company

Cons

Do not understand mental health, tried to stop my pay when I went off sick with post natal depression. Took the job I had spent so long trying to get away from me when I returned from my maternity leave. Full of false promises. Make out like the bonus scheme is really good but there's so many things that can give you a handicap that you probably won't even get a bonus after stressing yourself out so much to get it.

Advice to Management

Needs new management, who have training in mental health.

The maternity pay and the sick pay is the only benefit to the company
