    Pros

    Challenging but rewarding job. Not much else.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care for you. They consider you are a commodity. They expect total commitment and flexibility from their employees but then won't accommodate your holidays. Will try to not pay you what you are owed and the HR service is unhelpful and very aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better and stop the very high turnover of staff. Find better management, especially one that can speak a second language (French, Spanish, etc.) all staff are multilingual but can't get appropriate support or training from manager who only speaks English. Deal with favoritism and bullying in the work place. Shouldn't be so understaffed.
    You get an extra 20% of pay when you work night shift but it is not included in your "paid holiday". You actually lose money when you're going on paid leave. Unfair and cheap.

    Pros

    Talented and hard working people, great products and a strong brand

    Cons

    New mgmt ruling with an iron rod and leaving existing workforce not feeling valued, almost no diversity whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of guidance around culture and multiple senior appointments on huge Industry leading packages has created a significant gulf between mgmt and workforce
