Other people had good experience but I didn't. I had depression during my probation period which affected my behaviour, but the management didn't understand this and the simple mistakes I made in spelling for example were used against me as proof of lack of attention to details. I was stressed and trying to do my best, but the manager didn't see this. I know someone she was 10 minutes late in the morning. Someone sit close to her cheated on her and told her manager about the 10 minutes late. People gossip about each other. It felt like we are kids in school or even worse.
Restaurant on site. Two volunteering days, social events
Old mentality, people gossip about each other, they cheat on each other like kids. No understanding or support for mental health

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Lots of snitches is correct ok if you like Being stuck behind a computer All day very long probation . A lot of Managers and lots of meetings!. High turnover of staff also. Do not underestimate the job role.
Some nice people, benefits
Unnecessarily tight deadlines, endless reports/work plans Different business segments, so there is an opportunity of career progression Line managers manage their workers through spreadsheets, reports and daily meetings. Micro management culture, no sign of emotional intelligence Ready to invest in employees' training Work culture ok, but a lot of snitches at work
Central location, employees training, international travelling
Long hours, unnecessarily tight deadlines
Due to the longevity of staff it is difficult to progress your career. Hardest part of the job is liaising with other departments in other locations and getting issues to be progressed. Not a bad company to work for, they try hard to move with the times but often get stuck in the old ways of doing things.
Working within a Sales department I can honestly say no 2 days were the same. It was a pleasure to be a part of an amazing team. Hard working, loyal and fun is only a fraction of my experience working with Sales guys.
Incentives, nights out, competitiveness, hard work
Benefits are great, and the employees are welcoming and really nice to partner with. Fab company that is progressing in the right direction. Will work for them again in the future (as I was on a mat cover).
