      Great Place to Work

      Pros

      Biffa do a lot of good work for the community and have a lot of things available to support employees to make them feel wanted. They also give employees the opportunity to get training and the opportunity to advance.

      Cons

      I came across as part of an acquisition and the communication from Biffa was very poor and it took nearly 6 months before I even knew I even had a role at Biffa, so communication to employees could be improved.

      Supportive employer who works hard to offer opportunities and training at all levels. Team work is promoted and employees are actively encouraged to give their opinions on employee engagement within the organisation.
