    Bad communication, lack of proper HR processes, Unsupported and not valued

    Senior Brand Manager (Former Employee)
    Maidstone, England (UK)

    ProsThe building is great and it has all the relevant amenities. My colleagues, generally, were very easy to get along with and the atmosphere was generally good. The salary was okay, but not great for the role.

    ConsThere was a lack of support from upper management in terms of development and understanding as well as clear communication of what was required. The lack of communication in terms of day-to-day work was very apparent. For example, I had once requested we at least have a weekly Monday morning meeting with everyone to go over main priorities for the week and any other important information. This was done for a week before it was taken off the table and communication was back to being on an as needed basis which was ineffective and inefficient.

    In terms of HR processes, there was a lot to be desired. Firstly, there was no proper system in place for any review of work and little or no warning when anything is wrong with performance. The disciplinary process is very unfair because all the power lies merely with the line manager and their bias and prerogative with no feedback taken into account from other colleagues or stakeholders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a look at the HR processes involved when appraising employees performance, particularly getting 360 degree feedback from all the relevant stakeholders and colleagues of the employee involved. This should all be taken into account in order to assess the employees current value to the company and future performance.

    There should also be guidance for line managers which ensure adequate communication with employees with regards to general corporate information, bigger objectives of employees, medium-term objectives and weekly priorities. Day to day activity information can be left to discussions on an as needed basis.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unfulfilling

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    West Malling, England (UK)

    ProsMedium sized company, friendly people and a good work environment.

    ConsLittle room for growth as it is a small to medium sized company.
    Flawed HR Policies with regards to employee reviews where the final review comes down to the opinion of one person ( the line manager) without adequate 360 degree feedback from teams and other stakeholders. Bad communication from management on weekly priorities, trends and feedback on current performance and tasks. Lack of adequate training regarding personal development of employees ion their role with regards to some skills and competencies overall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview policy on employee performance to ensure fair appraisal of work to ensure the appropriate feedback is attained from the right stakeholders as well as gain agreement from the employee. Increase communication at management level on wider priorities and performance on a weekly basis.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
