Featured Review

Current Employee - Chef

I have been working at BBC full-time

Pros

Good working hours and good environment

Cons

No cons as company provides good work environment

Former Employee - Team Leader Pharmacovigilance/Drug Safety

I worked at Boots full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Best place to work with ..learnt a lot ..had a great team at both lupset and chimes.

Cons

- Didn't get enough salary hike and a package. -in 2010, I was told that company will sponsor me working visa (Tier 2) and because of that I didn't find a new job .. in 2011, I was told that they... can't sponsor the visa due to frequent changes in government rules. I would be there by this time if the company had sponsored me the visa or they would have informed me earlier (I could have joined other organisations) and I didn't have to return to my home country after spending lot of money in completing master's.

Advice to Management

Use carrot theories for right employees or don't commit something to employees which you can't give..if you do so then you are playing with someone's career. Anyway that was lesson for me ..... Fortunately, I got a job in drug safety in my home country and got a chance to work with all big pharma companies.
