Great company with great people

Regional Operations Manager (Former Employee)
Dunstable, England (UK)

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

ProsUpper quartile pay scales with very good overall packages. Rapid progression opportunities available as well as opportunities to gain experience in more than core role.

ConsVery high pressure to deliver unrealistic targets at times and some very dubious promotion decisions made on occasion. Progression not always based on merit but overall, nothing more than you would find in any other large organisation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Whitbread

ProsFriendly people, relaxed and informal working environment, great benefits package with competitive bonus and Sharesave schemes. Great variety of brands to work with and progression across the company is actively encouraged

ConsLocation of Head Office is difficult to reach by public transport and being in the middle of an industrial estate means it is not easy to get to shops etc at lunchtime

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue innovating

Fantastic place to work (or it was when I was there). Really caring culture, friendly people and good work ethic.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Whitbread

ProsThe people are salt of the earth, the location is easy to get to, the work is interesting and the money so so...

ConsSenior management a bit clueless, in the main its not cutting edge.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your staff (past & present) and look at some of the choices you've made. With hindsight - were they the right choices? Think hard!
