    I have been working at Kerry Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly people, nice office and location close to London. Lots of interesting work

    Cons

    They like to progress graduates and deglect hard working and talented experienced employees. Poor benefits package years behind competitiors

    Advice to Management

    Not to focus solely on graduates and to progress non grads so experienced employees stay. Competitive packages should be available e.g bonuses(not just for managers and above) salary sacrifice health assessments and buying and selling holidays.
