Top heavy organisation, crippled by incredibly poor senior management.

I have been working at QinetiQ

Pros

Top technical staff and teams in a number of areas.

Cons

Senior management who treat their highly skilled staff with absolute contempt and are incapable of making decisions. Declining order book, constant rolling scheme of redundancies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep dropping the share price by your incompetence, and eventually a hostile takeover might put you out of your misery and do your staff a favour.

    I worked at QinetiQ

    Pros

    The work is usually challenging and interesting, there are plenty of smart and likeable people and the working environment is flexible and relaxed.

    Cons

    The management tends to be very short-sighted and seemingly without a long-term plan for the company. The internal organisation of the company is inefficient, inconsistent and constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reorganisation of the company has already hurt employee morale quite badly. Without a honest and realistic plan for the future there will be problems retaining talented people.
