Serious need for senior managment overhaul and implementation of basic organisational management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsDecent benefits comparable with market place.

ConsVery political environment
Senior mgmt in region is incompetent
Finger pointing is the name of the game although at the surface people try to be nice, but there is a lot of back stabbing and layig of blames. The buck does not stop at who's accountable as they would like to sell
Zero transparency mgmt style
Do not believe in staff and staff development and retention.Prefers to look outside rather then develop internally
Very underhanded in managing people
Fire fighting mode at all times because managment is very shortsighted in what needs to be done to resolve issues in the long term.
Senior mgmt expects to know everytime u sneeze. Micro mgmt and Mgmt likes to mangage all the way down to the lowest level resulting in constant firefighting or daily incidents, but conveniently ignore the larger picture for long term sustainability
All lot of talk, but dont believe them cos they chage everyday
The IT organisation needs to deperate overhaul of its senior mgmt if they ever want to be successful

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not micro manage
Tackle to bigger and strategic issues for long term sustainability
Develop your people
Trust your people

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
