A constant struggle dealing with ever changing direction!

I have been working at Comtec Europe

ProsPay market rate, casual dress, free parking

Cons3 different CEOs in 18 months, each one un-doing what went before and throwing staff into an ever increasing downward spiral of confusion. Almost yearly redundency runs (usually just before Christmas) significantly in 2008, 2010, 2011 sometimes involving up to 10% of staff going. Long hours working culture. Directors constantly changing (entire board replaced between mid 2010 and end 2011). In all, directionless, confused and poorly equipped to meet market challenges, a very frustrating place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevise a market-driven customer-responsive strategy and stick to it!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
