    I have been working at SITA UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Having heard about SITA from a friend I applied for a position not really knowing much about the waste industry. My interview was really interesting and I am so surprised by how vast the company is and how many ways there are to "give waste a second life", the manager I met with was enthusiastic and I left feeling a real enthusiasm for the company and where my career can go within it. They seem to have a lot of long time serving staff who has progressed through the company so I am really hopeful that I will have the same opprtunities to grow and develop within the company. Once you get used to where all the various facilities are and who is the manager for where it is a great place to work so far and everyone has been super helpful!

    Cons

    Some the systems are a little dated and take a bit of time to get used to but thankfully IT are very supportive

    I have been working at SITA UK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic career opportunities, excellent vision, strategy and values. Feels graet working for a company that positively promote the circular economy and play and active part in implementing it into the business. The basic salary may not be as lucrative as other companies but the benefit package is good and job security is fantastic.

    Cons

    Due to a massive expansion over the last few years it is recognised that parts of the company are playing catch up in terms of buisness systems, IT, HR etc.

    I have been working at SITA UK

    Pros

    SITA UK is a very engaging company with an open door policy. I have worked here for several years and progressed through the company in several different roles. The training I have received in the company has been excellent, SITA UK have their own training department which I have found to be very professional. I will continue to work for SITA UK as I have no issues or problems with any of my management teams.

    Cons

    None to date. an excellent company to work for.

    I worked at SITA UK full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture is excellent and focusses on the development of the individual throughout. Open and collaborative, the business has a clear vision on where it needs to be in the future and the type of people it needs to get there

    Cons

    The business is extremely diverse and there are parts of the business where a 'long in the tooth, I'll never change attitude exists'. These long serving (one year of experience just repeated twenty times) stalwarts need to change or be changed
