the people at the middle and lower ends of management are very committed, hardworking and pull together to get things done
the senior team and overall corporate culture is often unsupportive of the lower ranks, operating a culture of control and blame rather than one of empowerment and trust
Advice to Management
listen to what your employees tell you and try to change
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dairy Crest in September 2011.
Strange process going through an interview sequence to then find that they had decided to appoint internally after all, despite the stated reason for advertising was "to get new blood into the organisation". Recruiter was operating on exclusive basis which helped clarity, and was quite rigorous at the filtering stage, both over the phone and at 1st stage face to face.
