    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Project Manager in Roehampton, England
    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at LTA for less than a year

    Pros

    Location is excellent and, the working hours, for most people, are very civilised. A relative small number of head office staff engenders a team work culture. Great opportunities to keep fit and healthy and excellent perks to follow GB players at all LTA events.

    Cons

    : Flat organisation structure limits ambition at LTA. Invariably those wishing to progress dont stay too long. : Too many meetings within management choke off opportunies to provide speedy resolutions. : Modernisation of working practices are hampered by the traditional values of tennis councils and its archaic procedures. : A small IT function that could do much more but its "windows of opportunity" are restricted by the relentless nature of the Tennis calendar and the distractions that this imposes on management. : IT, as the enabler of change, does not get the focus it deserves to accelerate change. : Too much emphasis on a "if it aint broke" mentality. : Not enough enforced change of smarter working through use of IT tools...eg too many blocked calendars, arbitrary use of messenger services obstructs communication unnecessarily and stifles project progress.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at LTA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally people are friendly and committed to tennis. Also nice environment and Richmond Park is next door.

    Cons

    I found little or no scope to be trained or develop new skills - it is something you have to push for - certainly no budget for training courses. Also no scope to move into new roles in technology. For big turnkey projects they look to go externally for expertise to consultancies rather than putting their trust in the in-house team. Curious structure for IT as they have 4 or 5 project managers but no business analysts.

    I have been working at LTA full-time

    Pros

    In the past few years there has been a lot of changes, with a new CEO and senior management changes the hope is things will improve

    Cons

    Even with technology changes in the pipeline they will still be behind, they need to be forward thinking not reactive and catching up.
