    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Ideal organization for women. Genesis regularly ranks in the top 50 employers for women. The company has emerged from a major re-structure and is finally able to focus on service improvement. Genesis knows where it is failing and it is successfully tackling these issues. The workplace culture is improving and I am happy with the opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    There are some dinosaurs around who don't want to change their attitudes. This leads to internal politics and power struggles. Senior leaders need to work with mid management better. Poor communication within teams...people don't respond to emails or keep pushing ad hoc work away. Sometimes the work environment can be very relaxed and you will meet some people here with a complete lack of drive. usually these people have been around for 12 years or more in the same position. The L&D team needs to up their game.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more robust system in place to deal with non performers. Weed out employees who don't have the right attitude and are still stuck in the last century.

    Pros

    Very friendly and social place to work. Not too stressful. Good benefits. Good proportion of female and BME staff.

    Cons

    Very high staff turnover, poor management and leadership. Staff are very often left to themselves as no clear direction is provided. Limited training. More confidence is given to external consultancies rather than internal staff which is demoralising and as a result many leave after a short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training your staff; provide career progression and listen more to your staff.
