      Moving away from the industrial market

      Apr 30, 2020 - Industrial Support Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The share save scheme is a good investment opportunity

      Cons

      Since all the different Center brands have been merged in to One Wolseley there has as expected been a loss in focus on the pipe side of the business which has seen the industrial team reduced even further. All the changes to the UK structure over the last few years had been to make it more inline with the USA, but have not worked. With a demerger due there have been a lot of redundancy over the last year which has stripped a lot of experience from the company adding to those that have left as a result of the changes made.

      Pros

      Has a share save scheme and competitive pension

      Cons

      Huge amounts of inequality across the business. Pay is not benchmarked and below average And the only way to get a pay rise is if you are prepared to leave. Many changes with senior management which has created a lot of uncertainty.

      Better look after Wolseley's interest

      Apr 24, 2014 - Senior Technical Analyst in Ripon, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      One of the bigger and better ran companies (finance wise) so jobs are stable Some of the personnel were great to work with and knowledgeable (down to earth) Forgiving and relaxed atmosphere Good communication from Senior Management Share Save scheme as incentive is quite good if you are with the company long enough to enjoy it Good paid over time scheme Wide range of negotiated discount with consumer good providers

      Cons

      Rarely will you get time off to do training even if there is budget allocated and middle management will rather burn pound notes just to make their point. Culture of over reliance on inefficient project managers (who did not even know what a pert chart was) which resulted in a huge draw of resources. Resources which were already short due to HUGE turnovers and head count freeze. Unless your face fits forget about climbing out of the hole you were recruited into (if you were a new talent recruited: good luck fitting in). Ever shifting goal posts and changing directions. New Grow and Grow Up models of performance assessment may actually be illegal. Nepotism Nepotism Nepotism
