    I have been working at LOCOG as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Unique experience and chance to work with and meet a variety of people. Good leadership and a fun environment to be in.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition for some people's hard work and the roles of paid staff and volunteers blurred in to one at times.

    Former Employee - Applications Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at LOCOG full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Empowering individuals, great work ethics, diverse and very inclusive. Dynamic leadership and good place to socialise. Locog made it fun to work and manage work life balance.

    Cons

    Some lack of recognition for hard work; internal politics with vendors and partners; not a reactive culture and often lagged behind due to lack of decision making on time. Although performance reviews were fair, it did take a long time to get any pay rise. Often the technical teams and HR were not in clear with processes in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was great fun to be part of olympics but the internal politics and lack of good of processes resulted in severe resource shortage towards the games time clearing indicating gaps in planning for the games. Could have done a lot better!
