Fantastic place to work (or it was when I was there). Really caring culture, friendly people and good work ethic.

Pros

The people are salt of the earth, the location is easy to get to, the work is interesting and the money so so...

Cons

Senior management a bit clueless, in the main its not cutting edge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at your staff (past & present) and look at some of the choices you've made. With hindsight - were they the right choices? Think hard!

    Over worked and under paid. Short term bottom-line focus is a recipe for disaster

    Pros

    Hard to say as nothing jumps to mind. I guess there is some comfort in knowing that the vast majority of your colleagues are in the same bad situation as you are. With a network as big as Whitbreads there is in theory a lot of opportunity for career advancement, however in reality unless you are an ass-kisser then you will get nowhere!

    Cons

    Poor salary. Understaffed and therefore very over worked. Working in an enviroinment where there is zero room for anything out of the norm to happen without serious consequence to operations, makes for an extremely stressful life. And when these types of issue are not standard across your competitors, you feel totally demotivated and no loyalty to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your employees - think about their quality of work environment. Stop over working your people, and treat them as you would like to be treated
