    Terrible Strategic Management

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist  in  Nether Alderley, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Nether Alderley, England (UK)

    Pros

    Comfortable working life. Good work life balance and some good benefits. Some small opportunities to progress.

    Cons

    Poor hierarchical structure. Management not prepared to take risks on tricky projects... Years of bad decisions have led to a dejected research work force who don't have the energy or passion to innovate any more.

    Everyone is now just looking out for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more meritocratic and promote those with drive and real passion rather than just the ones who fit in to the norm. Take more risks!

    This place needs a skunk works, but it's probably too late to save yourselves!
