    The people, although quite a lot of them have now left or are leaving.

    You have so much talent that is wasted or undermined by not very bright managers with no management skills or ability.

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CBI UK full-time

    Pros

    I received excellent opportunities through the roles to develop my skills, engage with senior leaders and make a difference through the range of policy work I was involved in.

    Cons

    At the time the organisation was going through transition, so it was not always clear where responsibilities for projects rested, and the workload could be high as a result.

    Advice to Management

    It is a few years since I have worked at the CBI, so I do not have valid perspectives to pass on to current management.
