How is management perceived at Dialog Information Technology?

Pros

Free drinks in the office on Friday afternoon. There's usually only 5 people floating about, so its not necessarily a social atmosphere.

Cons

- The top level of management constitutes 1 or 2 key people who control the hiring, the work assignment, the methodologies or approaches used, and the review of one's work. - The methodologies, work practices, and management style comes out from the IT industry of the 90s. It is political, underhanded and manipulative. - Consultants are not treated respectfully as professional resources but rather as slaves, and regarded as ignorant. Consultants are put through a gruelling phase of jumping through hoops to prove themselves as being worthy to stay. - The top level managers apply quality standards that are influenced by their personal agenda - not necessarily the clients' requirements. Their mechanisms have been known to burn out consultants - or used to assess the consultant's strengths and weaknesses - and then operate against those individuals. - Consultants are assessed by personal judgement as opposed to what skills they possess. - The top level managers are not respectful or loyal to staff. They have little empathy and think of consultants as machines.

Advice to Management

Be loyal and respectful to consultants. They have chosen to bring their IT professional skills to work with you. Regard them with respect and professionalism and you will have a far more successful office. Stop controlling and influencing everything - listen to your consultants who know the clients more directly.
