      Pros

      Very good management team and colleagues. Good Work culture with many incentives and further training opportunities.

      Cons

      The cons of this role was more to do with the nature of a customer facing industry and the size of the bar at the location but that isn't really the fault of the company.

      Pros

      free staff meal is rice and beans

      Cons

      it starts off as an enjoyable job where you want to work hard, managers try and befriend you or make you feel part of the team then start to make you feel guilty for not being able to cover shifts when we are massively understaffed with no effort to employ new people - say goodbye to having your birthday or any days you want off because managers will let you down at the last minute and never give a straight answer, they pay no more for making more experience staff train newer staff whilst they stand shout gossiping about them and make up excuses when you ask for a pay raise after being there for years. managers think they can intimidate you in front of others to establish power. late night closes where you go home past midnight and are rota'd back on in the morning with barely 9 hours sleep. minimum pay minimum benefits and favouritism throughout the whole culture of working at LI.

      Pros

      You'll meet really great people along the way including some lovely customers!

      Cons

      Management tend to only acknowledge their own friends, so even if you do a great job you're often overlooked for promotions as these are given to people who are friendly with managers. Moreover, some managers will try their best to push out people they don't like or people with opinions.
