Unethical and all round awful place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsSome genuinely good people working there

ConsSenior management generally consists of 'friends appointing friends'
Massive blame culture (scapegoating)
Genuine enmity from senior managements to anyone that points out errors
Lack of expertise in senior management
Ignores employee needs
No communication or outright deception by senior management
Falsification of records to meet government requirements is commonplace
False data sent by individual geomarkets to regions and HQ
Substandard pay but only certain people get raises
No vision for the future
Massively understaffed
Direct lies told to clients when bidding and reporting on work
Expectation that a person only has the Company in their life
Ridiculous expectations
Everythign either has no priority or must be done tommorrow. No middle ground

Advice to Senior ManagementActually run a company not a club for your friends that victimizes anyone who is not in your little clique

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