I worked at ELB Global full-time

Pros

None to report at all.

Cons

Do not work for this company. They have outdated policies, some more than 15 years old, zero training materials nor the people available to provide any face to face training on the systems or... processes. When asked questions on these, Director Marie Bolton directs people to the ‘quality manual’ but admits that she herself doesn’t use it. If she did she’d see that it is woefully inadequate to find any meaningful information. They claim adherence to global ISO quality standards but given how outdated and patchy their company documentation is, I would suspect regular audits are not happening to confirm compliance with the standard. The current director of this company, Marie Bolton, is a clock watching, micro manager who hires and fires staff on a whim. She is a bottleneck to getting anything done in a timely fashion as every step of the fulfilment process has to be approved by her. The Australian head office in St Leonards is a mouldy, decaying place to work as it suffered damage in the past that was not adequately repaired. There is holes in the ceiling, mouldy carpet in various offices, and a multitude of broken furniture just dumped over two floors of the building. Office ergonomics are non existent with monitors being raised using any means available (such as empty document trays), working chairs are thin on the ground and desks are static in height meaning anyone over a certain height will end up with a bad back. This company has the potential to be so much better but it won’t happen with the current management running things.

Advice to Management

This company has the potential to be so much better but it will only come about with a massive overhaul of their policies and procedures. Director Marie Bolton is a roadblock to any meaningful... change in the Australian operations of this company and should step aside for new, more progressive employment trends.
