    I worked at Whitbread full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A great company with friendly working environment.....great opportunities for progression in short span.....timely training for staffs of all levels......great hierarchy system means more opportunities.....the best I like is the INCENTIVE after hitting targets every periods.

    Cons

    Even though audits are for good and is a must.....some times create pressure on all levels for a quite long period till audit actually happens. Also a department is being judged for the rest of the year just based on the audit of one day...which can be good or bad based on the mood of the employer that faces the auditor....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management right from the cluster manager to site manager is good .....the one- to -ones at individual sites need to be made more effective for the overall goodness of the site .....keep doing good....All the Best.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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

    I have been working at Whitbread

    Pros

    Friendly 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

    Cons

    Location 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue innovating

    I worked at Whitbread

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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