    I worked at Westmorland full-time

    Pros

    Great customer reputation and can take pride in the quality of product. Some senior managers are excellent. Uniqueness of product and offer. Customers love it.

    Cons

    Directors often at loggerhead/ very poor or total lack of decision making. Poor staff retention is result of poor pay, company is hugely profitable too.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose unique feel. Improve local image as an employer.

    I worked at Westmorland full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good camaraderie amoungs some of the staff

    Cons

    Lack of Professional care to the employees. Amateurs trying to do a professional job. A school report would say "Must try harder"

    Advice to Management

    As you keep saying, your employees are your all. It is a shame that you do not realise what a contribution they really make to the success of the buisness. You are no longer a family business and are loosing site of your aims. The staff are very demoralised. You need to treat the staff as humans - not robots.
