    I worked at ABP Food Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere can be friendly and relaxed on a good day
    Colleagues are generally willing and able to look out for one another
    People can and do make very stable, long-term careers here

    Cons

    Poor salaries offered with no paid overtime
    Poor work/life balance - little holiday offered (due to the nature of the industry), overtime is expected on a regular basis without additional compensation and lunch breaks are rarely honoured
    Management often seem to make decisions without clearly communicating these to the worker bees

    Advice to Management

    Communicate decisions clearly to those under yourselves! Reconsider your pay scales in comparison to other companies in the area and offer reasonable compensation in order to attract/retain talent.

    Pros

    The company are good at some things and less good at other but they seem to be aware of where they need to improve and be working towards doing this. There are many opportunities for career progression within the company and you can definitely see improvements over the last couple of years.

    Cons

    HR systems need updating, communication within the group has been lacking in the past but this is being worked on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to improve
