I like my manager and my colleagues. its busy at times but we have fun and get stuck in

Things to improve

i think the shop floor and investment is great, makes a huge difference to how you feel. It would be great to see some further money gone into back areas, warehouse, etc.

Salaries are too low, the company take's too long to implement change and the board room claims to listen to staff but they clearly don't
