    I have been working at Winsby full-time

    Pros

    Hard work is noticed and valued here. There's a lot of opportunity for growth and it's a fun work environment. Management is approachable and encouraging, they offer flexible hours which allows me to balance time with my family. I enjoy helping customers and my co-workers make coming to work fun.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    I worked at Winsby full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most employees are helpful and the work environment is good.

    Cons

    Management exhibits too much bias. If they are not fond of you, you won't get appreciated or recognized. Worst, you won't get promoted and you will not grow in your career. If you are good at your job but you are not their puppet you will just have more jobs to do. This negatively affects the morale of the employees.

    I worked at Winsby full-time

    Pros

    My coworkers-turned-friends made my stay here a little less stressful.

    Cons

    It was a very stressful and demanding job that I didn't have work-life balance and I had conflicts with my family because all I do was work, work, and work. It was an unhealthy setup that I had to do something to improve my situation. I raised this concern to the management but they turn it against me as being non-resilient and uncooperative. I was glad I had the courage to leave and look for a better job.

    I worked at Winsby full-time

    Pros

    My team was quite good. I enjoyed their company.

    Cons

    When something is rotting, it needs to be fixed asap. The top management is rotten here. They put unwanted pressure on employees. Also, people are hired and fired on the whims of the management.

    I worked at Winsby full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the employees are helpful

    Cons

    Everything in this company just keeps getting worse. Management micromanagers the employees, and the managers make use of outdated systems. All of these make the work atmosphere much more stressful than it should be.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work, they offer flexible scheduling, good compensation and the work environment is upbeat and positive. Management does a great job offering training and education opportunities and are friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    I can't think of any at the moment.

    I have been working at Winsby full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many of my co-workers have been here for a long time, which is a good indicator that Winsby is a reliable company to work for. Management is supportive; always taking employee feedback into consideration and trying to help us enjoy our work.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a pressure to accomplish everything on time, but that’s not a big con for me because I like to push my limits and grow as a specialist.

    I worked at Winsby part-time

    Pros

    It's a very diverse environment with a lot of skilled people.

    Cons

    Top down management style needs a serious improvement and makeover. Upper leadership is verbally aggressive to employees and plays favorites, hiring and firing people on a whim no matter their seniority or performance. The list could go on and on. Please stay clear of this place.

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

    Pros

    I like being able to help customers.

    Cons

    It is the kind of place where the pressure to perform is always on. You are expected to chase and meet deadlines without any breaks. This kind of pressure pushed me to the edge, and I resigned before I lost all enthusiasm for my job.

    Pros

    Company pays well and is fair. Management sets a chill yet serious environment for us to be comfortable at working. Hours are flexible. They allow us to make arrangements when necessary. Gaining experience here is possible!

    Cons

    There are times when work can be overwhelming. But they are manageable depending upon how you will look at them.
