    I worked at Bella Italia full-time

    Pros

    I no longer have to work for this company.

    Cons

    I cannot believe this company has been named best hospitality company to work for, made almost 2000 employees redundant with immediate effect via a zoom call which we were given 20 minutes notice to attend. Followed by a "screw you, you're on your own" attitude as no assistance was offered for monies owed or redundancy payments. Shambles.
