    Pros

    If you do your job you will get left alone
    Once on rota, you know what you are doing
    People you work with are amazing and a good laugh

    Cons

    Waited at least 10 months to go on a route
    Management is always against you and never by your side
    Passengers
    Some duties are too long, no social life or family life
    Pay structure is rubbish compared to other companies

    Advice to Management

    Stick by your drivers, listen to your drivers, don't max us out because that makes us too tired which is bad because we focus less and let us have some family time

    Pros

    value employees
    very flexible
    lovely people and management
    great family feel
    excellent remuneration
    believe in their employees and give freedom to develop

    Cons

    1 person to do the work of 5 - too streamlined
    an old culture is still too dominating for relatively few challengers to overpower
    too much experience with buses and not enough with customers
    no formal pro-active investment in the development and training of people to keep them current

    Advice to Management

    get someone at the top that doesn't know buses, but knows customers.
    identify skill-set gaps at every level of management, particularly to do with customer-centric thinking, and give them the time and support to develop them
    ask people to keep a log of what they're trying to achieve and what is blocking them from achieving it, and change their support levels to help them
