    Terrible communication throughout the organisation but generally a good place to work.

    Pros

    There are some great people that work for the organisation who are talented and committed
    The work carried out by the organisation is cutting edge and genuinely has the potential to make the world a better place
    Free lunches available for staff

    Cons

    Unfortunately in a lot of respects the organisation is very bureaucratic which is highly frustrating. Basic systems used by the organisations support functions haven't really evolved over time meaning its often really difficult to get things done. The way that appraisal decisions are made is kept under wraps so, although the bonuses received are fair, you never really understood how decisions were made about bonuses which always felt a bit strange. The organisation also suffers from the age old problem of having managers that have got into their position based on length of service as opposed to actual management skill. There is also very poor work/ life balance regardless of your level in the organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide adequate support to allow managers to manage and be more transparent with staff. Communication at Johnson Matthey can be awful at times but its something that could easily be remedied without cost implications and would lead to much happier staff.

    Pros

    JM expects everyone to contribute to the sustainability culture of the company. This provides opportunities to provide input and ideas to improve each department using lean principles.

    Cons

    Often, good ideas are overlooked by management due to urgency of other important tasks (meeting production demands, audits, etc.). Also, not everyone is on board with lean manufacturing principles which makes it very difficult to fully implement across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with ways for technicians and lower level workers to become more involved in decision making.
