I have been working at Williams Lea Tag full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Its a large company and has a lot of accounts so provides as much job security as you can get in the trade these days.

Cons

Despite dotting the i's and crossing the t's, the senior management couldn't care less about you. Its not uncommon for people to have worked there for 10 years without even a cost of living increase.
Apparently the company never makes any money, or at least not enough to reward hard work or years of service. Nepotism is rife. Account handlers are brought in to do jobs that they either cant do or are not sufficiently trained to do, despite the internal (on job) training which is a joke.
The result is a growing decline in the skills required to work efficiently, meaning the perceived saving on employing cheaper and lower skilled people to do the job is more than cancelled by the costs in production through mistakes/lost time. The culture of uncaring, over bearing and corrupt management means that whilst the worst people are compelled to work at the lowest possible acceptable standard, the better people despair at what could be a much better more productive environment.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the layers of lazy, inept, cosy management that look out for each other by protecting the status quo, and introduce an incentive scheme for employees to advance, better themselves and the company through hard work. There are good people working at Tag that could be better and more valuable.

    I worked at Williams Lea Tag (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money is ok, decent amount of time off, co-workers are friendly.

    Cons

    Williams Lea wants to implement big things but never thinks these things through or plans anything out ahead of time. They just jump right into the fire and the employees get burned. You make do with what you've got even if the company cannot provide you the proper tools to do your job in an efficient way. I've never seen such a disorganized company in my life.

     Communication was to be their key element for 2011/2012 but that's seemed to have failed miserably.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they've been hired to do a job, give them the proper tools to do the job. Sr. Management needs to be more available and not hiding off in an office somewhere. Hire enough people to actually do the job and the work will be done on time and done right.
