Pros & Cons

  • People really do adopt the company culture, and it can be seen at every level
  • I love working for Reece because we are like one big family. You know everyone at the different branches and could move seamlessly between each one and still have friends at each branch. Also Reece are the first company that I have worked for that actually live by there values. They preach them but then back it up by actually doing it.
  • How well they look after and invest in their employees
  • Great team at branch level. Great support from HR and head office mentors. Can see the opportunity I have with the company.
  • The culture is great in Reece, everyone is friendly, and you can reach out to any level of management when required. There are also great opportunities to move around within the business
  • The supportive and encouraging work environment and feeling part of a great team. Along with the opportunity for career progression!
  • The only hard thing about working at Reece is learning the extensive product range. As there are thousands of products it does take a while to get your head around but after a while you get it.
  • Reece has a very set in stone mentality regarding the Reece way.
  • It is quite full on, you get thrown in the deep end and have to get used to being out of your comfort zone for quite a while as you learn everything.
  • Some rude customers

Culture

Culture
Reece is a very flat organisation in the sense that titles are respected, but everyone is accessible. Senior executives don't deem themselves to be more important than drivers for example. In office this is reflected in the interactions and transparency between staff and managers. High level of enjoyment and teamwork makes it a pleasure to come into work, and it's not uncommon for staff to organise to socialise outside of work.

Diversity

Reece has done tremendous work and encourages and promotes diversity in all forms. Due to the size of the organisation, we are constantly recruiting, with promotions usually happening internally. Retention is relatively high, however the job can appear to be overwhelming at first, it is important to understand the strong culture, and amount of support available.
