How is management perceived at Adam Matthew Digital?

Pros

A niche business operating within an interesting sector

Cons

Adam Matthew present themselves as a modern, progressive company. Unfortunately, beneath this veneer is a dysfunctional organisation struggling to evolve and adapt and a workforce constantly subjected to the whims of the Directors. Employees are denied access to resources and information essential to allow them to meet their objectives. As an example, where an essential function of a role might be, say, the procurement of goods and services, yet there is no access to a budget, nor inclusion in relevant meetings or discussions, then decisions based on sound rationale are vetoed with friends, acquaintances and historic associates being given preference. Things are done on a ‘need to know basis’ and regrettably, who needs to know what is decided on the basis of how a person looks, or their accent, or whether they went to the right university rather than their skills, experience and industry knowledge. Directors display a lack of experience in how modern businesses function. Archaic practices and processes persist with a thick layer of middle management making decisions by committee, often resulting in confusion and procrastination as egos compete to have their own personal opinion take precedence, however lacking they are in understanding that particular discipline or process. The resulting culture is one of micromanagement with employees disempowered, emasculated and repeatedly hindered in their ability to accomplish even the basic objectives of their role. Professionals, with many years of experience, are denied the opportunity to use those skills and are left frustrated yet denied any opportunity to address these issues. It would be easy to dismiss this opinion as that of a disgruntled ex-employee, but I think the level of staff turnover speaks for itself

Advice to Management

If you truly desire an agile, effective and collaborative business allow your workforce to be empowered, allow them to take ownership. Give them autonomy and the opportunity to collaborate and communicate across the organisation. And perhaps take time to gain some exposure to effective, modern business practices and strategies.
