Although a lovely team to work with its a shame the directors and new HR are awful. They have no people skills and thrives in talking down to people thinking they're better tgan anyone else there not realising they too are only being paid a SALARY just like the rest. Don't compromise your health or bring stress into your life by working here.
Associate Pharmacy Manager in London
Good to learn but not good to stay
Good place to develop skills as it is very challenging and your colleagues and line managers will support you and teach you.
The workplace culture is of a somewhat modern slavery scheme as you will be expected to go further and beyond, work long hours and do not receive overtime, be summoned back to work outside of your working hours to solve problems. All of this with almost zero recognition and appreciation.
The upper management undermines you and makes you feel disposable and easily replaceable.
Upper management forces line managers to overwork their teams and comply with unreasonable deadlines.

This place will depress you
If you're a naturally calm person who is stress free, no anxiety or high blood pressure, this is not the place for you.
I have experienced blistering shifts and scorching tears, the emotional turmoil drives you to insanity, I've been here less than 6 months.
If you enjoy being spoke to like you're worthless, if you enjoy being used as an indispensable tool, if you've always dreamed to watch your line manager sit and watch you struggle to then ask you why you've not done the ten other things he's asked you to do (as they're sat there doing nothing don't forget), this is the place for you.
The pay is good but not worth the responsibilities placed on you.
What management do not realise, is that they are still employees, and servants of the company. However being in a management role at RPL, they believe it automatically escalates them on the human hierarchy and improves their social status - it does not. They're bullies and low lives, when pulled out of their job role they become cowardly and dithering messes.
Imagine not being able to use your annual leave when you wanted to - yeah this company doesn't allow annual leave.
If you want to have no life, to play with wee, collect wee, and bathe in it, work here, but first, get your occupational health checked.
Laboratory Technician in London Bridge Station, Greater London
Currently still employed
I have resigned however looking for a new job. The ONLY pro about this job is the pay. NOTHING ELSE. If you take this job be prepared to not see your family, friends, personal life, you dont even have time to spend alone apart from travelling to work + back and sleeping. People are constantly leaving this company due to the respect they recieve, the shifts - i do 11 hour shifts this is not what i signed up for, they do not care about their employees and are extremely unorganized. You only get half an hour break and an hour if you work TEN HOURS OR MORE! Every single person on Earth gets hungry more than once in the time span of 10 hours. I gave the ONE STAR for the pay. But it comes to a point where even the pay isnt enough to keep one working there. 3/5 people leave without a new job because it is way too much to keep working there, I am one of them.
