    Where quality of work goes to die

    Pros

    - Salary - Line manager (speaking for myself. Not sure if everyone is great) - Flexibility (WFH, core hours but you can step away if you have a doctor's appointment etc.)

    Cons

    This is a company where the quality of work goes to die. Most of the people I've had the "opportunity" to work with do not care about the quality of their work and no one seems to do anything about it. Because some of the departments are highly understaffed, I think line management cannot afford losing people (i.e., firing them) who deliver substandard work. So it's up to other people, usually functional leads, to clean up other people's messes (i.e., working extra hours, burning out and be highly stressed over it). Please get rid of people that only drag the company down. Perhaps consider employing people in countries where people value the quality of work and STOP employing people where it's CHEAP!

    Toxic work environment, AVOID

    Pros

    Good pay for a starting position

    Cons

    Oh goodness, where to start. The culture is toxic and with the recent acquisition by a private equity firm it is going to get worse. There were no formal manuals (written or video instructions) for how to do my job. I can respect watching someone else do a process but alot of the functions can be complicated and need direct guidance. The IT team is the worst I have seen, and I would get reprimanded for not getting access to files in a timely manner, even though I was diligent in my requests. The work life balance is good at first until they pile on more work than you can handle and I would regularly work 55-60 hour weeks at a company that likes to tout their so called work life balance. Some of the KPIs are dumb, such as how fast you can remember details about a project when you are 50+ that you work on. My manager was toxic, micromanaging and made my performance worse than if I was on my own. Overall, this job was awful and took a massive toll on my mental health.
