Company is great place overall the only issue is the Management style at the different sites. Managers have little or no executive experience nor people skills. Culture is very demotivating for staff, no growth opportunities and lots of favoritism. Staff is very demoralized.
Pros
Quarterly alcohol allocation allowance
Cons
Management and salaries no overtime and short pay on salary

Exiting&challenging environment. Exposure to other areas within the organisation especially at a management level for those eager to progress. Not fixed in your job scope. Vast amount of in-house training available. Improvement on flexible working hours within certain job grades. Not yet world class with regards to attendance per employee. not market related salary, but great job security. Average of 34 years continued service levels
Pros
Free birthday hampers, monthly condiments and washing powder
Cons
Slow progression or promotion possibilities
