Good company spoilt by a strong "old boys network" feel and lack of opportunity

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

Pros

Great benefits package(s), Nice environment and some excellent members of staff. Bonuses (If paid CAN be good)

Cons

Complete lack of career progression unless your in "the network". Three changes of management in three years doesnt help (applies to my department). A lot of long serving staff members that are next to useless but so entrenched that they are immovable. Salary is "Non-negotiable" at time of employment and low. A blasé attitude to annual performance reviews leads to a global salary review structure (unless your management). Petty management that feel its fun to penalise certain members of staff come bonus time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clear the dead wood and look at the good staff you have rather than parachute in short term senior staff!

    I have been working at Domino Printing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a bad package overall, but not long term.
    Unofficially flexible with hours (if your in the right department/manager)
    Excellent canteen (sad when thats headline Pro!)

    Cons

    Top/Middle management heavy.
    Managers appear uneducated or uninterested in technology and its workings making it very difficult to develop.
    Some think its a university research company. Driven by paperwork and self validation.
    Limited to no career progression.
    Unbalanced benefits system.
    Instability in workplace due to "mood swing" department clear outs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what you have and appreciate it. Progression from within not just employing inflated over paid roles that last only a few months causing a whirlwind of destruction.

    Less managers! (ratio is 2:1 in some departments).
