    I worked at Hyde Group full-time

    Pros

    Christmas party, however hourly paid staff do not get to join in so have to pay for their own.

    Cons

    Managers have no idea how to run a business. Staff do what ever they want. None of the work is done properly, and no one cares about their job. Directors get big bonuses twice a year (enough to buy brand new £80,000 cars) and rest of staff don't even get a thank you, let alone the 1% pay rise they are promised every year. Clique culture as 80% of staff are related or in relationships, if you're not in the family you are a target. Reporting incidents do not get taken seriously, in fact, you get laughed at-even incidents of harassment. Managers expect minimum paid staff to start work hours earlier and stay hours after they are supposed to with NO over time, NO pay and NO time back, if you cannot do extra hours for free you are made to feel like your job is at risk. Shop floor staff behave how they want to and never get warnings. There are safety issues everywhere, extractions and air filters were never properly cleaned or checked so people are left to breathe in carcinogenic chemicals all day unknowingly. You are expected to go above and beyond for people who would happily dance on your grave. If you are someone who cannot stand up for themselves you will have absolutely no chance working here as you will get walked all over. If you are someone who will stand up for themselves, they will show you the door faster than you can say good morning.

    I worked at Hyde Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some good people there.

    Cons

    Senior management ignore issues, they try to hide it and cover over problems. If your not a yes person then you are targeted. If management aren't keen on you then your regularly threatened with disciplinary action. There is a clique on the shopfloor that tries to run the business. It's all friends and family.

    I have been working at Hyde Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    if you are part of the clique then there are benefits to be had. the chosen few will be part of the bonus group, receiving large bonuses to top up the poor wages, whilst other work twice as hard for little or no reward.

    Cons

    terrible atmosphere on all sites, shop floor run the companies (lunatics run the asylum!), managers take a back seat as they tend to not know what needs doing. staff struggle for work/life balance whilst those in the "family" or "clique" take the teflon approach and end up in 50k cars courtesy of bonuses.
