    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Whitbread full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good elementary development, encouraging staff and motivational individuals, good company benefits and range of roles and skills to be trained in

    Cons

    often shift work, inflexible working and holiday entitlement, low pay, from one extreme to the next between being underemployed and overly worked for the salary paid.

    Advice to Management

    show the employees you care by fighting for them in plain sight, maintain transparency and continue to show care they way you have been
