"It's a good starting salary but doesn't increase as steeply as it should with the increase in responsibility."
Procurement, Mid level,
"The initial salary is good as it's higher than other marketing roles in FMCG. Salary progression is a bit disappointing though with little reward for progression."
"It's good in a general way but progression and opportunities beyond the scheme are disappointingly vague and ambiguous."
"The pay is very good for a graduate scheme."
"For a food-based graduate scheme the pay is at the higher end. You could earn more if you chose to work in energy, for example. However, you are excluded from any bonuses while on the graduate scheme. You are paid the same amount regardless of what role you fill, which sometimes feels like you have been given a lot more responsibility than your pay grade (and sometimes it feels like you're being paid a lot more than your role is worth, so it works both ways)."
"The pay is good. I could be paid more elsewhere but I wouldn't have the same support, flexibility and stretch in my role."
"It's an excellent salary plus a welcome bonus."
"It is in line with the industry standard."
"Very competitive salary for a grad and lots of support elsewhere."
"It's a great starting wage."
Supply Chain, Graduate,
"Good salary considering my level of experience."
"Very attractive starting salary that's in line with the rest of the market. There's also a starting bonus, company benefits and an increase in salary after your first year."
"My pay package was initially average within the industry but this has been addressed and it's now very competitive. There are good benefits on top of the salary."
"Decent pay and benefits."
