Good mentoring scheme - one mentor in the site you work in and another is a senior director usually from another site (mine was from the London Head office). Very accommodating in terms of the rotations I wanted to participate in even though they were note related to what I had initially applied for (even though I joined as an engineer did placements in the Sales and Marketing and another with the Strategy director.)
There were a lot of redundancies in the office, but luckily graduates were not allowed to be made redundant so quite a secure job for the first two years.
Good young personal development programme where you spend a couple of days every 6 months meeting graduates from other UK offices and do a lot of soft skills training which was lots of fun.
Salary compares well with the rest of the market If you want work in a global context then there are opportunities for that, but they are not always easy to get and you'll need a bit of staying power to get them. There is a good performance-based review process in place, but you do need to drive it yourself and have a good manager to make to make it work.
Not all operational managers support and develop their staff as much as they should Some new young faces would be good particularly in mananufacturing and engineering, and more diversity in senior management as it would be helpful for the old guard to have fresh energies and ideas, as they are overly hierarchical and it takes a lot for somebody new to earn their trust.
Fresh blood needed!
The senior management have the right intentions
There are still too many people with gutter level morals, make sure your face fits before you go there
Too many intelligent people using the left hand side of their brain and too busy thinking about fluffy things. No wonder the business is collapsing about their ears
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
