    "Anglian offers a wealth of experience, however in a company with a short-term mind-set."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Management Accountant in Norwich, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Management Accountant in Norwich, England (UK)

    Pros

    Because of the short-term mind-set of Anglian and the demand for quick results, as an employee you have much exposure to all inter-related functions surrounding your job role. There are few barriers in place to inhibit your develop and Anglian does offer considerable training support in comparison to rival and local companies.

    Cons

    Communication amongst departments is weak and although a controversial point, top management in areas of the company appears to have been awarded their positions based on who they know rather than on merit. If you're not in the right social circles, opportunities for promotion could be non-existent. There are large salary gaps between employee levels and the short-term approach adopted by senior management raises concerns over long term viability of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a seriously hard look at top management and recognise the voices within that crowd that talk good business sense and those that are disguising a lack of ability. A modern approach to business management is required to utilise concepts that enable effective strategic planning as opposed to short-term wins.
