I have been working at Wincanton

Pros

Varied 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.

Cons

A 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 ManagementAdvice

Get 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.

    Pros

    Well fitting employees can progress.

    Cons

    Narcissistic. If you face don't fit you will remain at the bottom, regardless of your capabilities. Managment have been known to base thier decisions adhoc, or on emotion. Childish, unorganised, No seperation of management & friendship from top site management. No structure, cloke and dagger evniroment, Unprofessional. Some instances of bulling. (Most go unreported because of a friendship between GM and Production manager) Very little communication - unless your in with the right people erelevent of department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seperate you personal lifes from your bussiness lifes.
