    Great place to work but offices aren't in the best locations.

    Contrary to student reputation, a very ethical firm

    Human Resources Contract (Former Employee) York, England

    ProsStrong ethics and principles on the customer business management side - was particularly impressed when a senior interviewing sales manager immediately destroyed commercially sensitive competitive information that a candidate brought for a presentation.

    A global food player.

    ConsJust because it's global doesn't mean you're guaranteed a global career - varies by function.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's not my place to advise - all the ones I encountered were very hard working and ethical.

    Backwater connection laden racism, but good pay opportunities

    Line Operative (Former Employee) Tutbury, England

    ProsGood money, and once you actually get employed everything is good

    ConsI worked as a "temporary worker for 4(!) years, and was unable to get a contract

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo some review of how the lowest level employees are employed, and how long they have worked for. People that made the branch successful are not getting any benefits or even sense of belonging and therefore don't give their 100%
