    Pros

    In theory, loads of career opportunities due to the size and diversity of the group. But in reality it's a very stiff organisation that doesn't support internal career progression.

    Cons

    Experience from ACE: - terribly bad Head of Buying: lack of knowledge, managerial skills & experience, very poor buyer, extremely rude - no teamwork - no action after poor results in the employee satisfaction survey - no consequences for unacceptable behaviors or poor performance Generally, it's not a pleasant office environment with a lot of hostility.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of head of buying, invest more time in developing good people, stop sweeping under the carpet the things that would never be accepted in any respected corporation.
