I worked at Royal Mail full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There were opportunities to work with new technologies and with different areas of the business. On an individual basis, management support was good. There were some great colleagues.

Cons

Despite good sounding rhetoric, the environment across most of the company was command and control. There was a lot of pressure because of the financial and business climate, with Royal Mail having a shrinking portion of a shrinking market. Government did not seem to have a clear picture of what it wanted from Royal Mail, which made it very difficult to plan for the future.

Advice to Management

Beware of losing corporate knowledge as you shed staff
