Pros

Good office atmosphere (depending on where you sat!)
Promoted teamwork, not competition
Very good holiday allowance and private healthcare
No micro-management
Expanding and growing company
Job security
Expenses paid almost immediately
Great product portfolio - some good choices made in their acquisitions
Opportunity for personal development and to take on more responsibility

Cons

Experiences varied depending on who your manager was. I was very fortunate to be managed by a very supportive line manager, but other divisiuons not so much.
Not so interested in the welfare of their staff
Sales people didn't know their targets which makes it hard to know if you're doing well!
No HR department so no health and safey at work
People seen as commoidiities
Not very good IT
No flexibility with working hours
Disparity in salaries for the same jobs in different divisions

Advice to Management

Listen to your staff more, particularly in acquisitions when the benefit of that person's experience in a particular sector could in turn benefit you
Be proactive not reactive
Show more awareness of health and safety
Consider flexible working
Look at more structured career progression against KPIs
Be more honest and open with your staff

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you live in West London it's easy to get to, there are some really great people working there, it's a shame that every time you see them out of work hours all they do is moan about how much they hate the company and their jobs.

    Cons

    It will get you by but don't expect anyone to offer any progression in the company. If you look to the management for support you will not get it. Tarsus seems to be a company where everyone is vying to be top dog and would not let something like the success of others get in their way. The company promotes the stealing of ideas as a career progression tool and the blame culture is stronger here than anywhere I have come across.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff that actually do the job and not the middle managers who are desparate to cover their own backs.

    I worked at Tarsus Group full-time

    Pros

    None to think of or mention.

    Cons

    Management only cares about bottom line and no care or respect for the employee. They treat people poorly and are demeaning

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management..Look at who runs your business units and dig a little deeper to care and ask your employees how they feel about their management they report to. Blind spots all over the place. You will get an earful!
