    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Goodman Fielder

    Pros

    You get paid, that’s it!

    Cons

    - No focus - No Growth plans - No accountability - No communication - No strategy - No leaders, just managers They employ you for your ideas and new blood, however they undermine all you do. They continue to do the same thing and expect different results, insane! Very reactive organisation, not proactive. Egos are big here, zero emotional intelligence and they don’t care who they kick on the way to the top. If you have a pulse, you’ll get the job, if you’re breathing you’ll get a promotion. It’s a toxic swamp!
