    I have been working at Matthew Clark Wholesale full-time

    Pros

    Fun industry, great range of products, largest player in the wholesale market, good head office function

    Cons

    The business is hard to navigate with lots of processes to follow, pay is maybe below average given the huge workload and pressure of the role. Main issue is the bonus structure which sees a larger bonus paid but only at the end of the year. This offers very little motivation and drives the wrong mentality with a sales driven role.

    Pros

    Good knowledgeable staff, friendly and personable.

    Cons

    - The carousel of new managers that come in and change everything without understanding the departments, and then leave the teams in a mess when they go on to other areas of the business (Somehow earning more money). - Pay and bonuses, most people leave for more money, that the company refuses to give them. - Lack of progression, staff are often overlooked in favour of contractors or outside hires that will be gone in a year.
