    Good annual leave and nothing else

    Cons

    Bad management
    Freeloaders aplenty
    Bad decision making

    Advice to Management

    Flush out all the bad people managers.
    There are bad people managers who are clearly inadequate for the position. All they do is make bad decisions and lose money for the company.

    All they do is push their staff under the bus when things go wrong. Scream and shout with no constructive suggestions.

    People managers are not professional. They bring their personal emotions to work and verbally abuse and threaten staff who work day and night to get work done on their behalf.

    They claim credit and sprout lies to put others down. It’s a toxic environment out there and nothing is done to these toxic people cos they are somehow ‘related’ or ‘loved’ by people in the management.
