Does Greene King assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

Very flexible if juggling childcare

Cons

Everything else, no social life, no respect, no coherence. Powers at the top haven't a clue what to do, lost focus and made monumental errors with the only knee jerk response to squeeze those at the bottom. costing service scores, lost repeat custom and sales. Merger with Spirit Group has proved too much, they haven't a clue.

How are the career development opportunities at Greene King?

Pros

Excellent facilities, fun filled environment, secure job

Cons

Expectations from two narcissist bosses were too high, moving goal posts constantly and the ridiculous cost saving. No career path or opportunity to move forward with a career. Staff are only good whilst they can be exploited and when you have personal struggles they force you out and wages are very hit and miss. High for managers, low for everyone else. Bonuses are unfair and only managers. Figures get malnipulated to get full bonus

Advice to Management

Allow your staff freedom to do their job. Flexible around their needs. Bonus for all staff. Freedom to speak. Stop penny pinching and invest in proper systems and process

No career path or opportunity to move forward with a career.
