Great people, dreadful senior management

Administrator (Former Employee)
Birmingham, England (UK)

I worked at British Transport Police part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood work-life balance, nice people

ConsThe fact that the senior management at BTP is seen as an old boys' network is evidenced by the fact that 100% are white and 100% are male. Senior management often task multiple people for the same answer until they get the answer they want, not the answer they need to hear. This creates a culture of fear and inefficiency.

Advice to Senior ManagementEquip employees with the training they need to better themselves - labouring vanity projects such as customer service initiatives turns employees off-topic!

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