Many positives, but difficult to get things done due to multiple sign-offs, and recent senior hires have been weak.

I worked at Royal Mail full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There are some amazing people at Royal Mail - I was fortunate to work with many of them. It's a fantastic brand, and there are some great products. The benefits package and bonus potential is good.

Cons

A blame culture exists, and this stifles innovation as people are afraid to act. Added to this, sign-off procedures are cumbersome. Opportunities are wasted, and high-quality people become demotivated as projects take months or even years to achieve business case sign-off.

In recent years, senior people have been given responsibility for areas that they don't understand, and external hires (supposedly with the requisite expertise) have not lived up to their promise.

Once you have been in Royal Mail for some years, even with excellent performance, you will start to see people joining the business at your level but being paid substantially more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your experienced staff and managers - not every single piece of work requires Director-level sign-off.
