    Current Employee - Complaints in Newport, Newport, Wales

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

    Pros

    the reason people stay here is because of the team and the people they work with. managements have favourites if your in the clique you will go far if not your life will suck.

    Cons

    so many where to start ! management playing favourites, micromanaged on everything you do, systems are slow, excos and higher management don't care about the staff or the employees they pretend they do but its not the case, bullied by management , bonuses are non existent although we are told we will get a pay rise but this never happens, no progression, very little or no training your basically told to jump on the phones in a day or 2! computers are outdated software is from 2015! no work life balance, managers discuss your business with other managers! they don't want to listen to the employees higher management only cares about making money themselves and making sure they get their bonuses, not value or appreciated as an employee tech Mahindra is going to run this company to the ground!

    Pros

    Great People working in the business

    Cons

    Culturally weak - not quite sure what the company stands for

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people and the goodwill they have for the company, rather than the costs. If not, you will lose the goodwill

    I worked at Target Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The majority of staff are really nice and professional

    Cons

    The senior management team are all staff who don't live locally, the office is devoid of senior staff on a Friday. There is also a bullying culture with some senior management who seem to think they are superior in intelligence just because they come from the other side of the bridge.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Target Group

    Pros

    Work is easy as nobody cares about quality. Pace is slow. No "long-hours" working culture (most of the devs spend Friday afternoons at the pub)

    Cons

    Stuck in the past (systems and attitudes)
