      Pros

      Sharesave scheme (this only because the American side of the business is performing) the UK results & outlook are poor...

      Cons

      Poor leadership right from the top down, staff are continually kept in the dark fearful for their long term employment, higher management have no real concern for staff, they keep spinning news to mislead and cover the real issues, the only reward for loyalty is more work piled on to a much reduced workforce. Customer service is poor due to reduced staff levels, career advancement is non existent in business that is shrinking, never enough time to complete all the initiatives, that could possibly help,but only if there was enough staff to carry them out. a real sense of under performance.

      Pros

      Some lovely people work here. Unfortunately said people are not recognised

      Cons

      Far too many chiefs! Managers managing just one other person! If you speak up or challenge anything you will be basically told to like it or leave. Underpaid staff for level of work being done especially on lower wage brackets. When pay challenged and valid evidence shown the higher management talk you round in circles so you have no chance of winning! Long working hours compared to other local businesses. Branches used as scapegoats and obviously over stretched.
