      Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on your time with us. It's disappointing for us to read that you feel there are issues with middle management, as maintaining a positive workplace culture across all levels of the business is very important to us. We have also done a great deal in this last 12 months to ensure there are plenty of opportunities to progress through the launch of our Talent Guild. This has landed very well and a number of employees have already benefited. Kind regards, WUK Engagement Team

      Pros

      Good customers some good staff

      Cons

      Being pushed out of a role you've done for years cos there's fresh blood in branch that wants to progress. Cant go to senior management with a complaint cos it gets back to who ya complaining about can't go to HR cos they get senior management involved even when it's issues with them at one point couldn't join a union. Just feel like I don't want to work for that management and branch any more. Also senior management will approach managers to take over other branches and apply for jobs with in the company before even interviewing other people so ya on a losing streak already.
