    • No Opinion of CEO

     

    Good salary. Bad management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Norwich, England (UK)

    ProsSalaries are very good, and there is scope to move around - if your face fits.

    ConsMy experience was one of bad management - unskilled people making their way to the top resulting in frustration and misery for their staff. Frequent redundancies means people are fearful a lot of the time and not delivering their best - only happy staff are productive to their potential. Middle management seemed very good at protecting themselves however incompetent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more creative with rewards for showing potential. Let lower levels come straight to higher management if they need to with good ideas - don't be so hierarchical. Make sure all managers are adequately qualified and attend CPD - say, all managers over a certain salary grade. All senior managers and above should be qualified to do their roles.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Busy doing nothing

    Various (Former Employee) Norwich, England (UK)

    ProsGreat colleagues
    Great environment
    Keep staff well informed
    Salary fair
    Amazing redundancy package

    ConsTo many restructures (on average every 18 nonths)
    Lots of 'suit speak'
    If you're in with the right people you'll do well

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop restructuring so often and allow for the changes to bed do before altering structures again

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
