I worked at Photo-Me International full-time
The products provide a useful service to the general public, and quality is generally good. Most of the people working for the company are dedicated to their jobs and doing their best for the organisation, often in adverse circumstances.
I have never come across a management like this one. Under the two French CEO/CEO designate there prevails a fear culture. Management meetings are one way barrages of how poor the collective performance is, and then followed by individual sessions along the same lines. Communication is very poor - silos reign supreme. It's all about how much money they can earn for the senior management..slash costs, maximise short term profits. Product marketing is very poorly supported and products are launched before understanding basic issues like local regulations..and then they are surprised when unrealistic targets are achieved. It's a top down culture, and don't even think about suggesting improvements...I'd strongly recommend not joining the company in a management position..you won't last long anyway. Nobody does. Also of note is that the market for ID is being centralized by many Governments..so the Photo-Me business is declining.
Advice to Management
For the long term benefit of the company and the good people who work there, they should replace the current senior management with more skilled, competent people.
