None enjoyable place to work. Poor working life balance and little support for progression. Management are poor and have no respect for none-managerial employees.
Terrible place to work
I can only speak for the boundry way site but it was terrible. the moral is the place is so low because workers are being paid next to nothing for the ever increasing work loads the management pressurise to complete. all this even although there are no target bonuses or benifits at all which in turn is why there are so many lazy workers in the warehouse.
Consno free cofee (on starbucks contract), dirty toilets, bad management, filthy microwaves, no benifits for working hard.

Wouldnt recommemd to anyome
Never ever ever ever ever ever ever work there because it's 75% full of back stabbing managers, shift managers, graduates that think they know everything, guess what???? Thick comes to mind, even administration at that place was so shifty
Stuck in a bit of a time warp
No progression for PA's and not provided with laptops or mobile phones. Very much a 9-530pm environment for Admins. No real opportunity to be able to think outside the box and feel as though you are adding value. Paid to do and job and that's it

Hellish and stressful warehouse
It was a good place to work for when i first started 6 Months ago because the move to Enfield was not in place at the time. Since they said we where moving warehouse to a new one the work rate decreased and everything just got worse, managers would not sort out problems that would arise and attempt to get you to bend the rules so they could save time. But before the move everything run smoothly it was enjoyable to come to work. because they would let me get in and just crack on with my work no one would bother me unless needed to, even letting me leave early for working through my breaks.

Excellent and interesting
Excellent cooperation and nice culture. Happy life without tensions. Possible collaboration with neighboring institutions and timely help from institute officials and Govt. officials. I enjoyed a lot. But, access to facilities is poor.
Great place to learn and develop
Started my career as a manager here and found Gist to be a great company to learn. well lead and very good opportunities to grow within. The days can be long and you must be willing to lead from the front, as during peak periods its all hands to the pump.
The management team are always willing to listen and if required make changes to achieve the end goal.
The one team ethos is the best part and it will encourage people to stay.
