Bland, unimaginative, making a rod for their own backs

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsIf you know what you're doing you can get away with anything here. They're too nice to slack employees.

ConsThe business is boss. These guys don't make the decisions. Everything is very stuck in corporate drivel mode.

Advice to Senior ManagementStand up for yourselves and stop the good guys leaving.
