The 10 WORST employers in the UK – check out how YOUR employer rates!

We all complain about our bosses – we tend to perceive them as born evil, true monsters preying on our labour in exchange for poor wages. But are we really so unfortunate? It appears that others do have it worse! Data provided by Glassdoor.com users build up to a shameful ranking of the 10 worst companies to work for in the United Kingdom.

The principles are simple – employees assessed their employers on a school-grade scale. Unfortunately, to create an objective ranking of the worst UK employers has proven too laborious – to process data of millions of British companies and their ratings turned out to be beyond the capabilities of the Telegraph journalists.

The British woke up when the Polish begun to leave the UK

They have nonetheless managed to rank several firms with the lowest ratings. As a matter of fact, this is not a list of the 10 worst employers, but rather of 10 from among the worst rated firms. We advise you to avoid those employers at all costs! The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) can “boast about” a rating of 1.9. Its employees complain of challenging and stressful conditions, though at the same time they praise the company’s flexible working hours and good benefit system.

 

Almost half of the highly skilled labour force could leave the UK within five years!

When asked for a comment, a FOS spokesperson emphasized that over the last few years, their company has undergone serious restructuring which could be seen in the work atmosphere. On the other hand, people employed by the renowned bookmaker William Hill, in addition to the lack of breaks and long working hours, criticize working alone most. Employees of JD Sports (rated 2.6) complain about their employer’s high demands for minimum wage. They also report that in the firm’s Rochdale warehouse conditions were worse than prison. The company of course assures it does its best to provide best possible conditions, but the bad reputation of JD equals that of Sports Direct. Ladbrokes (2.3/5) employees also mention loneliness at work and difficulty dealing with abusive customers. Many workers remark that the Coral merger ”ruined the company” and that it had been much better before.

 

And here is The Telegraph’s ranking:
