  1.  

    Frustrating at times with the ready fire aim strategy, and lack of support for employees.

    I worked at Cliftons

    Pros

    Great locations and footprint. Lots of potential to improve. The staff are committed to success when given the right direction, support and leadership.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover is a major issue. Only 1 out of 5 staff have been at the company for more than year. Churn is huge. Mostly due to lack of senior management leadership and support. There is a cut corners attitude when pressure is on causing stress to all. Even the senior management can't seem to stick around for more than a year at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on reasons for people leaving the company and take responsibility for sometimes bad decisions. The business has great potential with lots of talent, but they end up walking. There is direct impact to the costs when staff come and go, but this is not measured so not treated with care. Pay attention to the greatest assets; the people, not the training facilities!

    I worked at Cliftons full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coalface staff are supportive and collegiate. Facilities are nice and modern. central locations are handy.

    Cons

    Churn. Management concern for staff is almost zero. If they get given an inch they take a mile. Awful culture. Staff are willingly burnt if it means slightly higher monthly profits. The attitude is "meh, there's plenty more where they came from". Staff commonly expected to work 60 hrs but get paid for 40 of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nil, as you won't care.

    I have been working at Cliftons

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good location and good service offering.

    Cons

    Management is opaque. Do not provide guidance, just orders. Not able to get involved in decision making. Still run by original owner who is distracted by other business pursuits and failed to invest in the growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more inclusive to staff you wish to keep. Be more open to their feedback. Take advantages of opportunities to grow regionally or your relevance as an organization will quickly ebb.
