    I worked at Associated British Foods full-time

    Pros

    Assimilated into the workplace with relative ease. Made to feel a part of the cohesive unit.

    Cons

    The sheer size of the companies and subsidiaries meant on occasion valid points raised go unnoticed.

    Pros

    Friendly, relaxed work environment. Opportunities to progress and move around for those that express the desire to. Varied workload. Flat company structure ensures management are easily accessible. Young people given a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Talent management and personal development could be better. Roles and responsibilities could be defined better. Office politics can be quite intense. Sometimes younger employees are given tasks that they don't have the skills/experience to complete successfully.

    Advice to Management

    Make expectations clear. Understand different team member's personal style and adapt their communication to suit. Set clear strategic vision and ensure all members of team clearly understand their very important role in helping to achieve it.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Associated British Foods full-time

    Pros

    Strong values about being good to the environment and the community
    Great opportunities to move around the company - if you can get yourself known
    Flexible and autonomous culture

    Cons

    Teams work in silos and there is a clear hierarchy in place that causes division between the 'haves' and 'have nots'
    Very few policies and practices are written down, so you need to be good with ambiguity
