I have been working at Whitbread

Pros

Friendly people, relaxed and informal working environment, great benefits package with competitive bonus and Sharesave schemes. Great variety of brands to work with and progression across the company is actively encouraged

Cons

Location of Head Office is difficult to reach by public transport and being in the middle of an industrial estate means it is not easy to get to shops etc at lunchtime

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue innovating

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

    I worked at Whitbread

    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!

    I worked at Whitbread full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Preparatory courses, shooting stars, some coworkers, chances of progressing in various areas of the hotel, chance of learning in other areas (cross training)

    Cons

    General manager totally unprepared, responsible for the dismissal of many employees who worked for many years in the hotel, too much pressure and little financial return for employees, employees paid below the average market.Nobody cares about what you did for the company , they dont look behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop flirting with employees and prepare better for it to be a good leader, fair and realistic giving importance to what the staff do for the good of the company and recognizing the value of employees.
