    Flexible hours
    Good pay for industry
    Sociable staff
    Staff discounts
    Free share scheme

    Cons

    Too corporate in places
    Company used as a political propaganda tool
    Late hours
    Over-working the staff
    Expecting too much of part-time staff

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staff welfare. Consider yourselves all on a level playing field, working for the same company. Not, them working for you. A greater connection with the staff will work wonders in any Wetherspoons.
