Bad culture
Competitive with no room for advancement in the business. A lot of big personalities who only focus on select group and focus too much on trying to build a culture, that they forget they need to do business

great place to work.
Lion is a great place to work. I've worked with some great marketers and the culture is very supportive and flexible. I enjoyed my 10 plus years there and still remain great friends with so many colleagues.

great place to start
Some great people to work with. Complex supply chain that is good for learning the FMCG environment. The lack innovation or the acknowledgement of new ideas hampers the growth and performance of many aspects of the business.

Worst place i have ever worked
In my entire working life which equates to 40 years i have never worked in a place that was run so poorly.

This was basically due to poor leadership which in turn has led to the entire workforce having an "I don't care attitude".


The only good thing about the company which keeps everyone going to work each day is the income, which is very good.
Pros
Close to home.
Cons
Poor leadership

fine
I was an intern. I did it for college credit. I worked remotely and it was fine. My boss would call me up every day and give me my tasks to complete before I could go.

Good Company with a lot of waste
Good culture , good people but recently losing good people at a very fast rate. Started an outsourcing that brings no benefit to the company. There are many projects that started with good intentions but went pear shaped . Just shows the management failure in multiple layers. And funny that they never learn from mistakes just keep repeating them and expecting different results.
Pros
free beer points
Cons
Management with no clue
