    I have been working at Lookers full-time

    Pros

    Generally a good place to work with good training.

    Cons

    Very poor management leads to a free for all environment where bullying runs riot, people get away with behaving very poorly.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to actually be some management and certain people need firing because it's the long term people who think because they have the knowledge they can behave how they like and management won't touch them. People are leaving in droves at the moment, I will not be far behind as this ruins the atmosphere ruins productivity and ruins lives.
