Losing sight of whats important

Management (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsAmazing cause
Some very dedicated people

ConsFar too many people in Director / Head positions. Many of them promoted because of time served rather than skill or input
Salaries paid to those in Director / Head roles are unrealistic and not reflective of their impact
Inconsistent approach to appraisal
Culture of favouritism
Many people not having the impact they should
Lack of leadership in support functions means organisation isnt efficient
Organisation really needs some new blood and a 'fresh pair of eyes' despite rebrand has become stale an institutionalised

Advice to Senior ManagementRationalise senior positions and ensure 'value for money' on salary spend
Bring in new people with new ideas and perspectives (but stop forcing them out when their faces dont fit with the old tired cohort)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Cancer Research UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Challenging working environment, highly motivated and dedicated staff who are committed to working for a very good cause.… Cons: There are not many downsides of the organisation; but if I was pushed I would say that it takes quite a long… Advice to Senior Management: Clearer staff progression guidelines Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
