Pros

Seek is a very social place with lots of fun social events, lunches, after work drinks, the worlds best work Xmas party and lots of good looking young people. They have a well equipped break room with free espresso coffee, table tennis table, galaga etc. Seek senior managers are talented, strategic thinkers from a consulting background who make a lot of good decisions about the direction the organisation should go in. If you develop strong friendships and social connections with the inner clique who run the place then you can do very well and look forward to early promotion at a young age.

Cons

Seek senior managers are very hands off and have delegated their people and process management responsibilities to a group of young, inexperienced team leaders and managers. As a result there are some poorly organized processes and working methods which make it very difficult to meet expectations and there is a lot of politics and favoritism toward the IN group.

Anyone who threatens this group of young managers and team leaders by criticizing the way they do things or by competing with them for promotion is undermined and forced out through a ruthless campaign of false accusations, constant criticism, faultfinding, humiliation, malicious gossip and slander. Some managers turn a blind eye to this. Seek HR and other managers blame the victim and participate in the harassment.

The result of these poor human resource management practices is that quite a few high achieving people who challenged the status quo have been forced out with serious psychological injuries. Some have been unable to work again for some time.

Working in this environment is like being a high school student in the movie "Mean Girls"

Advice to Management

Recognise that you have a serious cultural problem and fix it before you end up in court.
