    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ISS A/S full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    To be honest not much, but as a contractor to a well known company, it made my job much more bearable

    Cons

    Staff come and go, training the new ones up because managers or supervisor can't be asked , to much training not needed all the time, think it makes the manager look good

    Advice to Management

    Having been made redundant in December 2014, the company showed no interest in helping me find work within the company, redundancy period a joke, no meeting due to lack of management , finally received my letter 5 days before my last working day, terrible company to work for ,

    I have been working at ISS A/S full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good immediate line management, with support.

    Cons

    18 months to get fit and able management in place. Releif cover abysmal and sub contracted out which gave many shortcomings to the performance of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and follow up. Allow good managers to take overall control of sites, rather than differant managers trying to compete against each other for the same outcome.
