    I worked at Travis Perkins full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people all look out for each other

    Cons

    Having worked at Travis Perkins for a number of years I was able to see a definite decline in their willingness to support and develop staff and this led to a large number of long serving, important people go from a number of teams. A constant change of leadership and direction has led to the IT department struggling to provide a decent level of service to the business and the morale is at an all time low.
