    Pros

    canteen
    social events and activities
    nice people
    good benefits package

    Cons

    lack of communication
    very poor operational tools and Enterprise Management Systems across the sites
    feeling trapped
    fake opportunities for professional development

    pretentious project management
    absolutely unprofessional HR

    Advice to Management

    have an operational substance behind your projects; currently, it is pure marketing
    don't be afraid to talk to people who work for you
    imagine, you are leaders, not just managers ...it is the 21st century after all.

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere - flexible with time. Friendly teams and people are approachable if you need help. Good IT and HR teams.

    Cons

    Dated offices that are extremely cramped and only getting worse. Not much career progression and difficult to know what you could aim for next. No set grades.

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some advancement opportunities.
    More of a "Career for life" kind of company if that appeals to you, you could also be stuck though if you wanted to leave at some point.
    Good starting package but most likely what you'll stay with. Salary reviews not very generous.
    Generally helpful colleagues

    Cons

    -Extremely undermanned team having a unreasonable amount of duties and workload. That leads to a number of problems that make the job intolerable.
    -Workload is ever increasing as company keeps hiring salesmen constantly. Support team has stayed exactly the same (if not smaller) thus getting more and more workload daily.
    -Company processes make no sense and some are so complicated even experienced members struggle with them. Very hard to enjoy your daily job.
    -Calls come constantly back to back making it extremely difficult to catch a breather, problem solve and learn something in the process.
    -Time micromanagement gets to a point where it will get noticed if you take a 2 minute bathroom break. When on lunch you'll have to keep a constant eye on the clock so as to be back on time.
    -Process extremely slow. The most minor change can take a very long time to happen bringing frustration at a peak.
    -HR seems to be lacking an understanding of a balance between employee and business interests. Next business interests employee interests are swept away.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear at the interview stage about what the job is like. Don't look to save the slightest penny. When you allow such a policy to affect your employee salaries you operate a high risk low return policy as increasing a salary slightly is nothing compared to the cost of an employee leaving.
    Hire enough people so that they're not glued to the phone with back to back calls all day and end up resenting their jobs, promote an option of breaking up the work day instead of sitting stuck in the cubicle.

    Pros

    Great business and many able staff makes it an exciting place to work - good atmosphere and great canteen make it very pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Business tens to grow and contract cyclically so tends to over recruit and then have redundancy/ reorg every 4-6 yrs

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers - it is not just about the bottom line. Hire and fire alternated with nurture and develop approach can leave people a bit cynical of upper management

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent manufacturing capability. They try new things when practical, and hold their employees accountable to cost, quality and time.

    Cons

    Top management - including the Board of Directors - is totally out of touch. They make subjective decisions without gleaning input from anyone, let alone top line management (of which I was one). Unfortunately, this lack of commitment affects new product development or fixing troubled product lines.

    Advice to Management

    That’s my point - they don’t accept advice. Oh, one time they did - I was invited to have lunch with the BOD and they asked me my opinion of the dessert.
