    I worked at Tulip Ltd. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can park outside

    Cons

    Unprofessional, unfriendly, not cooperative, remote senior management and a head office that is half empty due to the number of people that have left over the last 18 months. A few nasty pieces of work to avoid who lack any class.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity and culture is somewhat lacking, your business needs to become an employer of choice which it isn’t at the moment

    Pros

    there are some nice people to hang out with and people who are very knowledgable

    Cons

    there don't seem to be many opportunities for growth. Been doing the same job for 3 years
    one of the lowest salaries in the market, they don't generally pay well and when a colleague asked for a pay rise he was refused it.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to try and keep their people and invest on them

    I have been working at Tulip Ltd. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job

    Some of my colleagues are great

    Capable workers can climb the ranks

    Two paid tea breaks per 8 hours

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to other sites, and incoherent pay grades. Those with extra skills and responsibilities are paid the same or only slightly more than unskilled agency workers. Likewise, those working shifts which has them working weekends, bank holidays, nights, and other antisocial hours are usually compensated only a few pence more for their sacrifice.

    Office staff have nothing but contempt for the staff on the factory floor actually doing the work. Since we are non-unionised and have an onsite agency with its ready pool of migrant labour, management get away with treating us like dirt. Subsequently several long-term employees have left due to shift changes and suppressed wages.

    Machinery constantly breaks down and is never replaced or properly repaired.

    Most of the workers (agency and contracted) are Eastern European, who prefer to communicate in their own languages (Russian is the lingua franca.) This can make for a difficult, uncomfortable, and even downright hostile working environment for others. If the management had any sort of respect for its employees, it would institute an English-only policy to ensure workplace dignity.

    Likewise, the Lithuanians and Latvians who run the onsite agency blatantly discriminate in favour of their own kind and are rude and unhelpful towards locals and other migrants--it seems they only give locals work when they are absolutely desperate for staff, and then try to get rid of them as quickly as possible.

    On of the few factories in the area without a full canteen with menu. The microwaves and machines we are supplied with are usually broken or empty. Unfair when people are working 12 hour days!

    Advice to Management

    Sort out pay and the uneven work\life balance.

    Institute an English-only policy onsite.

    Get rid of the agency and bring back temporary contracts for seasonal demands.

    Canteen should have a full menu and subsidised meals.

    Replace outdated machinery.

    Treat your employees with respect and not as expendable wage-slaves.

    Pros

    Not many. Salaries seem okay. Some good people at the lower levels.

    Cons

    Totally unprofessional. Loads of middle management dinosaurs who have always done it their way. No support and very few processes. Some really basic things that you would expect to be done but people have never thought of or no desire to make better. Like a company working 20 years ago.

    Lots of managers who just think life is about working.

    I would avoid this like the plague, it seemed to be really struggling when i left.

    Advice to Management

    Needs some big changes or this business will struggle.
