    Current Employee - Manager

    I have been working at Candy Group full-time (more than an year)


    Generous holiday allowance and generally nice colleagues albeit some incompetent


    Where do i start?!?
    Antiquated stock system (still developed in house)
    Lengthy decision making processes/ chain
    Lengthy and complicated operating processes and procedures
    No flexibility
    Senior managers / directors do not answer communication, emails, requests for help; do not take decisive action
    No openness to new ideas - that would save time and cost
    Lack of transparency
    Lack of communication
    No listening
    No respect for suppliers and no effort being put into building relationships with them
    No respect for customers
    Soo many staff, each dealing with minuscule tasks but completely oblivious to the bigger picture
    The list goes on....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in modern systems
    Audit your processes, systems, people - the whole business
    Cross train your staff
    Allow staff access to information so they can make informed decisions and resolve problems
    Communicate with purpose

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
