Team Member in Leicester Forest East
on 6 April 2021
Decent, but a pretty good culture and management
It has a good culture and management handles the customer areas fairly well, as you can imagine, staff areas are fairly poorly maintained and a bit hazardous at times, and after profit losses from Coronavirus it the profit driven decisions over everything else have been exasperated, but overall the place is not too bad

Avoid at all cost!
Worse company i have had the misfortune to ever work for. Unless you want to be overworked and underpaid this wont be the job for you. Avoid at all cost!

Very accommodating
Good company to work for. Fast paced work environment with friendly employees. Provides several benefits to encourage staff. Salaries are paid regularly. Had a memorable experience working there.

Worst place to work
The IT department is so outdated its like your living and working in the year 2003.They seem to think staff should work hours and hours in personal time to achieve something. The IT they implement is technology from the year 2006. Management are rude and unhelpful. Worst place I have ever worked. On-call sucks.

Outdated, Undervalued, Understaffed.
The IT infrastructure is incredibly outdated and in need of major upgrades. I didn't feel like I was learning anything new or progressing my career in any way. I didn't feel like I was doing any of the work my job title would pertain.The company culture encourages massive amounts of unpaid overtime. If you want to fit in with the "clique" or make any career progress you have to give up large chunks of your personal life. It's very thinly veiled, but you can tell you're not going to progress within the company if you're not willing to sacrifice your personal time unpaid on a daily basis.There are members of the IT team that work 1-3 hours extra a day, plus weekends unpaid, undervaluing themselves and setting an unfair president for everyone else. If you're not willing to do this do not expect to be accepted or progress. I understand sometimes you have to put in the extra hours, life is just like that sometimes. But at Welcome Break it is a daily expectation, don't expect a thank you either!There are specific key members of staff who are incredibly rude and difficult to work with. These individuals do not want to share knowledge, constantly talk down to their team, are argumentative with other managers and are generally unpleasant to deal with.Overall, not many people at Welcome break are happy with their job and you can feel it in the atmosphere. It is extremely draining to put in the effort when even upper management are clearly bored and given up on making any progress. Anyone with anything about them has left for better opportunities.
