    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good for a start up and for progressing your skillset, getting a feel for a business environment and networking. Some training offered, most of it only relevant to company products though. Initial package and benefits is competitive.

    Cons

    Little in terms of progression. HR or management doesn't seem to be particularly aware of what's going on on lower layers, Initial package is good but it's probably going to be what you'll stay with. Probably a good idea to plan on moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more actively involved with all layers of the business

    I worked at Domino Printing full-time

    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.

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, fun, supportive leadership. Technical challenges make for intersting work. Excellent support for training and cpd. Good share scheme. Generally I think staff feel valued. I feel that there is a good future for Domino with good growth potential.

    Cons

    Limited career progression. Pension contributions from employer are 5% only tiding with time or on promotion, which is not especially competitive

    Advice to Management

    You will need to provide more opportunities for career progression and salary growth as the local economy heats up, to keep the best people.

    I worked at Domino Printing part-time

    Pros

    Good fun people to work with and relaxed management. There was also a great amount of flexibility in research and investigating any new ideas you may have.

    Cons

    Some highly incompetent members of staff. Company research quality is very low, and uneconomic. the company was also very disorganised and I felt that the research was going in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Higher better managers and invest in research for the future. Take more time over deciding the direction of the company.

    Pros

    in the early years domino was such a great company to work for
    where everyone was listened to,

    Cons

    sadly it became the same as every other company, where junior management
    were more interested in graphs and charts, and pointless meetings, with the information going nowhere
    along with consultants who had no understanding of how to excite, and motivate people in the business,
    thank goodness i left,

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the team leader function, also get rid of the annualised hours,
    if people know what hours they are working, they can plan ahead,
