"Good people but long hours - tough place to be a 'middle manager'"

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

Pros

Head office - lots of good people to work with and a good environment to work in. Decisions usually based on facts rather than hunch.

Cons

Lots of senior managers so decisions usually taken at a high level rather than delegated. Lots of work required to support proposals, then often re-worked when next senior stakeholder has a question. To succeed often means working long hours. Lots of meetings so work gets done early morning or in evenings.

Advice to Management

Let your teams get on with it!
