Does J Sainsbury offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great people to work with but not the management, they do not care about you Great name to have on the CV

Cons

To progress it’s very much about who you know, how loud and a good talker you are. It doesn’t matter how good you are, if you don’t play the game then your carer goes nowhere regardless of how skilled or experienced you are. Long hours are expected off you No real accounting systems NO training at all, you just have to figure everything out yourself Lack of basic benefits and perks such as medical, dental etc until you reach management level Pay is and has been and will always be below market rate MIGHT get a bonus, this gets dangled like a carrot forever If you leave even if it’s the the month the bonus is paid then you do not get your bonus baring in mind the bonus relates to the previous financial year and is paid 3 months after the FY yet you can’t get it. Looks diverse from the outside but is not actually diverse ALWAYS going through restructuring almost every 6 months, not get for job stability nor one’s mental health

Advice to Management

Invest in a real accounting system Invest in training people

Lack of basic benefits and perks such as medical, dental etc until you reach management level
