    Pros

    Nice and friendly peers workers. Large local organisation with sufficient resources. Stable working environment.

    Cons

    Management is hierarchical and top down. The size and structure of the group may have made it less flexible, things are processed with a limited speed. Pay rise is slow and benefits are not attractive.

    I have been working at A.S. Watson Group part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salaris elke week netjes uitbetaald. Op de gewerkte uren zitten vaak extra toeslagen Meeste collegas zijn erg vriendelijk

    Cons

    Teamleiding kan als onredelijk ervaren worden, dit verschilt per groep Teamleiding doet te weinig met feedback op effiency, zelfs als ervoor niet geinvesteerd voor hoeft te worden. Er is een roddelcultuur aanwezig, zoals in elk bedrijf is er een “vast” groepje dat roddelt over andere en ipv de betreffende personen aanspreken er een melding word gedaan naar de teamleiding. Bijna elke week staat er wel iemand... huilend aan de balie omdat zij of hij ontslagen word. Verbeter procedure worden beloofd aan deze mensen maar dat gebeurd vervolgens niet.

    Advice to Management

    Probeer polshoogte te doen van de gang van zaken op de betreffende locatie zodat er overal boven op gezeten kan worden. Er komen elke week veel +/- 10 mensen die worden aangenomen die binnen afzienbare tijd weg zijn, zet daar vraagtekens bij waarom dat is. Ik geloof dat met een paar discrete beslissingen er een gigantisch veel veranderd kan worden in positieve zin voor zowel werkgever en werknemer.
