Medical law suits have made orthopeadic implants espensive. Medical facilities are going broke just providing basic pain and trauma repairing procedures. I am unfamiliar with this company but work with metal implants. The insurance most times does not even cover the cost of the implants.

I worked at the Sheffield site 2000-2004

I spent most of the 4 years warning people that Richard Senior was sub standard material, He used a lot of company resources giving management positions to rugby players so they would play for his team. Pre-booking, failure to pay wages correctly, threats of sack, pay cut, violence etc. were all too common. Not surprised by what's taken place, only surprised it took so long for people to catch up.

It started long before 2000 it was as early as 1995 when he took over at CMR Lileymans, This guy needs 10yrs inside and all the money he made in equity taking off him

Everyone who sung Seniors merry tune should go!
The company will not move forward without a total clear out.
All a bunch of Churchill dogs if you ask me.
Mark Corry carries no clout, get him out!
See Sheffield Star website for the story generated by my letter to them (search symmetry)titled "all work and no play" this will give you an idea of the lack of management skills here.
Out of it and as happy as larry.

Lets not just blame Senior the whole management were poor and told him what he wanted to hear.
Corry was the evil one and still is believe me I am still here with others who suffer daily with his incompetence.Corry is being protected by Moore Senior was not clever enough to lead all what went off.The failing was down to the whole management present ,previous, and corporate.It is not down to just one person that is spineless and all know it.Personal grudges from one or two of you does not help us.We know which two idiots you are.Senior was by far better than this bunch we have now

Cripes what a shitpot of a firm,i know i still work there,senior management an interesting description of a section of people who clearly are not "management" senior or otherwise.
Especially middle management, but i think that our Mr Hynes is finding them out slowly but surely...
And when he does the shopfloor im sure will laugh out loud.
And W"$%ck and his cronies fat and thin will be doing there best Full Monty impression across the road at the Job Centre....
So as 2008 comes to a close 2009 beckons,same shit different year i suppose.

I have worked hear for a number of years more than I care to remember.I speak from my heart and care like number of my colleagues.
You can cut cost, you can make redundancies, but you need to give people a lift so we know we can move forward with change and hope.We need leader ship at the coal face we need to see a mid field general and Corry is a waste of space and we all know it when is he going to go because until he has gone the company and its work force will not row in the same direction.We need change leadership and help now.Give us hope,to change and a future.From someone who cares and knows.

I think Mark Corry has always been an idiot. He got his position by smoking Mr Senior. He is as thick as 2 short planks, has no personality & is the ugliest person i have ever met. In my time at Symertry I came to detest him for his incompetence. I always saw him more of a grave digger type. Or even running an ice cream van in a cemetry in the middle of the night. If he had a personal fan club there would no one in it Not even him, he doesn't even like himself.
Out of work though I have a completely different opinion, he's just an arsehole.

I am a rat infested foul mouthed wart hog and as far life is concerned, am generally regarded as the lowest of the low. I have always taken great pride in this and tried to work on improving my image to make people detest me even more.
Occasionally I do get competition from the likes of Adolf Hitler, Idi Amin, The Devil, Judas Lescarrot etc. I do not generally feel that my status is threatened by this but there is a serious competitor on the market now and I fear the title may be stripped from me. His name is Mark Correy. I wish him luck in his persuit but will do all in my power to stop him.

Can it be true at last that Corry is gone/sacked/redundant? not even gets to keep his car? this sounds like justice at last. Not many left!

It would seem that 4 managers and 1 director have been made redundant, the list apparently includes the "evil one" mentioned above.
There may well be light at the end of the tunnel!

So Mr Corry has left the company, this could have happened many many years ago if the employees had stood firm against the ever unpopular Senior and co and pushed for union recognition, At least Senior did something for the company, unlike the fore mentioned, as for the Press shop comment above, to whom are they referring, not me I hope, lets name names and not be spineless!

It seems my reign of tyranny at Thorntons has not quite been appreciated to the full by an envious minority. Well let me tell you this you bunch of foul mouthed imbociles. When I take over the world which I shortly will do. Don't come running to me for a job. You can all go crawling to the Senior empire if you are out of work. He might may have a vacancy for a boot licker. I may apply myself as I am fully experienced. See you all in purgatory.

Yours insincerelly

Well what a bunch of ass holes.
If the outside worldwere looking in you would think that one had flew over the cuckoo.
The company has moved forward over the years and created wealth for many sustainable jobs and many families have benefited.
The company has done alot and Senior built the majority.
Think what it was like 25 years ago and 15 years ago.
Many have enjoed there life outside work and we have made that company by hard work and still are putting in the effort.
We care and so do amny others the majority of shit put on this web site is full of shite and by reading some of the comments you should be in a home home you demented twat.

what a load of bull on this page, ive been there 20 years and earnt good money by working hard, and also lost good money by still working hard and having to watch as others have their fingers in the pot that i helped build. there seems to be a lot of people who live in every corner of the country that have worked at thorntons!!! why comment and then say im from bristol or manchester?, whats that all about? spineless?those who have worked for thorntons in the last 20 years know what went off but lived in fear of losing jobs if they said anything. things are not much better now, management maybe a little better but also people either being promoted to positions they are no good at or people deciding they are now in charge and getting away with it. there is also your little clicks of people who are now in because of who is in charge, but ive been here a long time and have seen these people come and go all the time, all the best to you because you know who you are!!!!!!
