      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at LOC Group full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      If you are British, you will love it. If not you will be treat as nothing. the company's name and the fact that you can be considered as a consultant, even if you do not do this and only do marine warranty surveyor, which means you are merely a witness.

      Cons

      Company used to be flat! Now full of bosses, lack of transparency and the upper manager are completely lost. London office is taking over everything in Americas.

      Advice to Management

      Recycle yourself. Micromanagement is demode it is archaic. The company needs a retrofit and cut loose the UK.

      I have been working at LOC Group

      Pros

      Bureacratic, lack of strategic vision. Fragmentation. Ineffective egotistic and charismatic leadership. Organizational culture confusing with no clear set of core values understood.

      Cons

      Innovative and creative growth mindset individuals would not strive here. No incentive , motivation or empowerment is encouraged. Creativity is stifled. No career advancement or development opportunities. Diversity is not the norm or encouraged. Nepotism.

      Advice to Management

      Leadership should be humble and listen. Leadership is confused with all the tumulteous uncertainty and should learn to utilize human capital to execute and be aggressive in taking risks and be very agile. Be visionary and encourage change agents initiatives.
