    Pros

    Small business feel, good atmosphere. Traditional products and progressive technology available side by side. Solid customer long standing customer base

    Cons

    I can't think of any real negatives, there is a tendency to focus internally however this approach is changing. There is an opportunity to sell more; opportunities have been missed and more focus is required

    Pros

    I'm struggling here but perhaps the company car and pension.
    The £50 Christmas bonus 😂

    Team spirit is horrendous, HR have no clue. Getting your expenses paid is a real chore. What ever you do don't spend your own money!

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain your staff rather than burn through them!

    Good work environment, international travel and career growth opportunities, work autonomy.

    Low salary, long working hours

    Advice to Management

    In order to motivate employees and raise the morale, there should be a clear plan and direction and it should be shared with all. Employees need to feel that they belong to the team that make things happen.

    Cons

    Old boy's club attitude
    Compensation
    Micromanaging
    Code of conduct not enforced

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Modernize. Train your service technicians and bring salaries in line with those paid by your competitors. Instead of paying a manager, dispatcher and secretary at every branch across the country establish a modern dispatch system and encourage autonomy among technicians.
    Some individual branches are rife with harassment, racism and nepotism. Anonymously survey branch staff and enforce the Code of Conduct

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

    Pros

    High quality products to promote, specifically the rated safes and night depositories. Long tenured employees in key areas of the operation, caring dedicated staff, relatively low turnover of staff.

    Cons

    Lack of investment in advertising, lack of investment in staff, significant supply chain issues affecting many areas of operation, ongoing heavy reliance on individual effort to resolve systemic issues.

    Advice to Management

    Invest effort to increase morale of the staff. Hire a professional consultant to identify areas for improvement and implement solutions, having someone organize a pot luck lunch does not constitute investing effort.
