Satisfying work and a supportive environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood management structure that supports its employees through good communication. Flexible hours and fair consideration of personal commitments. All in all, supportive and encouraging.

ConsSecurity and stability of position is becoming an increasing issue due to re-structuring. This had led to feelings of anxiety and despondence, which is threatening the supportive nature of employment.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership would be improved with more consideration of personal anxieties of staff, who are keen to keep jobs they enjoy but are worried of losing when they believe they are being deemed dispensable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
