    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay. Good social aspects. Most staff well looked after. Always paid on time or earlier.

    Cons

    No real incentives to become/be a manager anymore, a lot of same perks as other staff. Very limited progression within company, higher positions like RCM appear to be unstable and short lived. Low profits relying on high volumes makes staffing difficult, means a lot of running short throughout shifts. Very difficult to train and maintain staff on the resources available.
