Great Individuals: Poor Leadership

Sales (Former Employee)
Basingstoke, England (UK)

I worked at Global Crossing (UK)

ProsSome very committed and talented individuals who make sure customers are 'looked after'. This is achieved despite having to re-invent the wheel everyday and having to grind through unfit IT/systems.

ConsVery top management are untouchable and a clique apart. Senior management struggle to set and own anything. Middle management involves collating and reporting and that's it.

Do what's laid down not what's right.

New product developments are laughable. Marketing non-existent.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore of the same asset-sweating is a plan of sorts. It'll benefit the old guard CxOs when you're eventually bought-out but customers and employees simply sweat.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not a place to be proud of.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Basingstoke, England (UK)

I worked at Global Crossing (UK)

Prossystems were good, so it was easy to do what you needed to do. The colleagues were good to work with.

Consno security, poor management, there isa real blame culture where people are just looking out for themselves, and management is not only poor, but take no accountability for their actions.

Advice to Senior Managementstop being there for personal gain, and start trying to make the company work, it could be so much better

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A very good company with the usual "big corp" issues.

Accounts Director (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Global Crossing (UK)

ProsThe company overall is very proffesional and has a good feel. There is a lot of pressure in the enteprise sales team to perform which is based on their need to drive corporate sales. They have a good UK team, however weak/under staffed product management tends to let them down. Too strong a focus on networking rather than full managed networking products.

ConsVery political senior management clique.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevolve responsibility and remove middle tier management.
