    Bullying, lying, poor pay, useless HR department, not signs of a decent company

    Deputy Project Manager (Current Employee) Derby, England

    ProsYou can work your way into a position with travel, little responsibility, generous expenses and if you are scheming enough, decent pay. Of course they call this management. If you can stand up at a Town Hall meeting and sound positive, if you can bully people, if you can hide from customers and back them when you do meet them against your own staff, then you just may make it into the Executive. All these attributes are pros for the right person.

    ConsIf you keep your head down, work hard, you are a dead duck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFrankly, crap managers are so engrained, so built into the infrastructure, that the only course is the one you have taken. Compete on price, get the Indians in. All Bulldog and lipstick etc. In the UK, starting with Thomas, then Finnan and onto this bunch, we were cursed.

    Glad CEO has gone. He ruled through fear and surrounded himself with yes men.

    Client Executive (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsCant Think of Any. Possibly travel opportunities.

    ConsUninspired and untrustworthy mangers created a climate of fear over job security. This was particularly true the further up the ladder you progressed. You knew that in a tight spot, the company would not back you up. Savvy customers could get Managers replaced, even fired. Gutless management, because they were all scared for their jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEliminate fear culture. Bring back a focus on customer satisfaction. In 5 years I have never been asked for a meaningful review of client satisfaction, but financial reviews happen weekly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
