    Pros

    The job itself is interesting and variable
    Local teams are great to work with

    Cons

    Management structure changes to the detriment of staff interest
    Communication from management at times has little to be desired.
    Recruitment was outsourced causing detrimental effects to the business and health and wellbeing of staff.. constant overtime for an entire 2 years, 2 years of only taking 3/5 weeks of annual leave and no support when you advise of stress and burnout.. and the depression they caused
    Support is not in place for mental health issues in fact after a change of management they used this against me and pushed me out via disciplinary action which wasnt needed, could have been dealt with differently given 7 years of great performance reviews and the additional stress due to the business. I resigned in the end, as the final meeting was to be in London, 170 miles from my base location and they wouldnt move it to me despite a doctors note, so i didnt get the opportunity for a fair fight, and this was just 3 days before my wedding.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure to get results to fix valid staff morale issues and is actually a legal requirement under the health and safety act for staff welfare.
    Make sure staff dont breach the working time directive -if they do get an opt out! Again another legal requirement
    Get a mental health policy and appropriate training to all management so that all colleagues can be treated fairly, and get the support they need.
