    I have been working at Biffa full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a clear strategy and understands where they need to improve. There is a really supportive attitude, this has best been displayed in the way the have handled the Covid crisis. As a business manager, I am trusted to run my operation and held accountable for doing so. I have the freedom I need to get on and drive my business forwards.

    Cons

    Some of the systems and processes are dated, data is in numerous systems and often difficult to access. However there is a real drive to improve this and use power BI as a central tool for metrics.
