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

    Pros

    Can't think of many pro's but was an ok place to work you just have to be a little thick skinned and be able to switch off from work when you go home

    Cons

    Location isn't great, management abit corrupt, staff not kept informed, too much work not enough time, management unsupportive and unappreciative.

    Advice to Management

    Give staff more support, get in more staff where needed, help staff more rather then through them
    Under the bus
