    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Listers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly manager, local, nationwide if moving, be myself, flexible is a privilege under my contract...

    Cons

    ...but that flexibility brings zero-hrs contract, could be no work some months, however usually suitable, NEVER had a PAY-RISE in over TWO years, no progression or opportunities offered. A Family owned business that doesn't seem to care about the staff who can't be seen by the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Gain trust of the workforce with honesty and transparency.

    Pros

    Nearing the 15 year marker with Listers, with progression offered in reward for hard work and loyalty. A true example of a large business that you can develop within and build a career.

    Cons

    As always with larger companies, sometimes really positive, consistent communication could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive and supportive of your teams, interact and review regularly and listen to your staff.
