    I have been working at Morrisons full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast moving environment
    Varied roles : there is a lot of flex within your role
    The People : the standard of expected behaviour is higher than at some other retailers
    Pay - award employees well within the market

    Cons

    Instability and change within the company: although reportedly doing well never seem to be willing to give certainty to employees around their own jobs
    Becoming more like Tesco and Asda in that profit at the expense of quality of people
    Who you know more important than what you know - reward for hard work is not always given

    Advice to Management

    Clarity as to how reward and recognition is given to employees
    Ability to 'whistleblow' on managers annonymously where they are weak or inadequate managers
