    I worked at Getronics UK

    Pros

    The team leaders trusted their staff to do the right thing and avoided micro-management where possible. Office camaraderie was excellent, people in the building felt they were on one team trying to do a job.

    Cons

    Remoteness from head office and associated teams left us feeling isolated and underappreciated. Communications with teams in other countries was poor, and their competence varied from great to terrible.

    One of the several CEOs once described us as onshore staff with offshore pricing - while intended to reassure us that we were an important tool in the business offerings this does not make you feel like a valued employee.

    Pay was below average and annual pay rises were frozen while responsibilities were increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sack the sales team that could not bring in business, and restructure the projects teams to be more accountable.

    No opinion of CEO
