    I worked at GeoPost full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good working Environment and great people.
    Nice Offices and free Parking.
    Above average salary for each role.

    Cons

    No promotion opportunities.
    Let good talented employees leave for other companies as no progression.

    Advice to Management

    Look what talent is around you, not CV's sent to you by recruitment agencies!!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at GeoPost (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They pay decent money for what you have to do, as you don't have to engage your brain in IT Support (but they only do this so when you try and leave no other place can match so you end up trapped).

    Cons

    -They send you on absolutely no training courses
    -No development plan at all
    -The skills I've picked up are only applicable to DPD (so I'm struggling to find an external role)
    -The turn over of staff is very high
    -Expected to work long hours AND weekends UNPAID
    -Heartless management that don't care
    -Management are terrible as they've had no training
    -Too many politics
    -In the IT department you are treated like a child
    -No technical work as everything is outsourced

    Advice to Management

    Try and actually develop and think about the well being of staff

    I worked at GeoPost full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced
    Lots of interesting projects to work on
    A good field (logistics) to work in
    A good insight into large scale systems
    Some very good people work there

    Cons

    Lots of 15 year+ veterans who've risen up the ranks without any noticeable ability
    Toxic and damaging management gameplaying and politics
    Higher management that functions like a boys club
    A whole layer of management that wants to please the CEO and NEVER deliver bad news

    Advice to Management

    Start recruiting new blood into senior roles before it's too late
