Featured Review

Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Whitbread full-time for more than a year

Pros

I have been in hospitality for most of my adult life and spent a career in different roles in the field around the UK and abroad and must say that Whitbread has been the best company to work with in... all these years. Employees are individuals and treated not only fairly but also as top management would like themselves to be. During the first lockdown not only did they top up furlough payments for all its team the company continually find moments of truth to better employee wellbeing. I am proud 🥲 to work for Whitbread and now understand why some team have worked for the same company for 10-15 years. Take a bow top management and keep it up. 👍🏽

Cons

None that I can honestly think of compared to other hospitality chains in the UK and trust me there is a stark difference.
