    Pros

    Good team and environment when everything is going well

    Cons

    Long hours, if very busy can be a struggle to get a break if you don't smoke

    Advice to Management

    At this place - brilliant, nothing needs to change. Higher up - spend some time in the teams and realise what's needed. Don't tell management to cut hours when it only means those left on working are struggling! (And in turn not making as much money)

    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent salary (for GMs) and uncapped bonus scheme

    Cons

    No loyalty to you, AMs are a protected species... even the bad ones so you're on your own if something goes wrong. You're a number and a robot... don't try and be anything else

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers - they're repeating the same issues year after year and you're taking no notice

    Employee/ team incentives are good Includes a 25% employee discount across all the Stonegate brands

    Communication between the site and head office is very poor. The little to no training in addition to being thrown in to the job and expected to swim, which usually results in an extremely high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    More thorough training and team communication
