Pros

Big company, generally secure in this climate, for the most part I work with a fantastic group of people!!

Cons

Red tape, overstretched in places, managment often seems to take the 50,000ft view - forgetting those people at the "coal face".

Advice to Management

Spend some time with the sales team - talk, and listen to their views.

    Pros

    Good team atmosphere, with permanent and temporary workers all included. Sharing ideas is encouraged. Lots of humour, some really fun personalities. Most vacancies are circulated internally first. Much more focus on solving issues than blaming individuals. A free weekly "happy bus" into Loughborough.

    Cons

    Policy says temps must be let go after ten months. Little long term opportunity for anyone outside the science/ lab background. Archaic systems in places, some of the work is very dull. Some "cubicle mentality". Many employees say "obviously" about twelve times an hour. Until Christmas 2012 everyone has to eat lunch in a tent (canteen space being used for a special project).

    Advice to Management

    Consider whether retaining trained experienced temps for longer is worthwhile. Senior management could be a bit more accessible.
