Exciting opportunities in an essential industry - things improving at Wincanton plc

Manager (Current Employee)
Chippenham, South West England, England (UK)

I have been working at Wincanton

ProsVaried opportunities coupled with project work and change management. Always something going on, but you need to be flexible and prepared to seize opportunities as, when and where they occur.

ConsA bit disjointed and some IT issues. Silo mentality. Fire fighting on occasions and obsession with how results will be received in city - some short term knee jerk actions as a result.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet off your backsides and visit some sites - get a feel for the business. Stop reading about how to do it - do it! And take a long term view sometimes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
