    I have been working at Bakkavor

    Pros

    4 days on 4 days off, so plenty of free time, large car park no issues with parking, modern canteen

    Cons

    Not enough hours in a day to complete the work load so expected to do overtime for free, management challenges you on smalles details just to show who's the boss, group bullying is common and your sucking up is valued alot more than hard work.
