Does Chapman Freeborn offer massages?

Pros

Lovely culture, passionate people that are happy to work here and get along. Great manager, great team, great job! Amazing support and receiving lots of positive feedback. Trust and autonomy are given naturally... which is the complete opposite experience to some other places I've worked. You're treated like an equal here and people of all levels converse/get along which is refreshing! If they want me to leave they'll have to arrest me.

Cons

Nothing so far... There's a new cafe and some more food options here. Free fruit on Wednesdays; transport discounts. Boss kicks my butt out the door at 5:30....Can't complain.

Advice to Management

Great job management!

Free fruit on Wednesdays; transport discounts.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Chapman Freeborn?

Pros

The people are friendly and pleasant to work with. My direct manager is great and very open and welcoming to new ideas, enjoyable to work with, and very encouraging and supportive. A high level of autonomy and the opportunity to get stuck in and hit the ground running. Work life balance is important here and encouraged, and they are understanding, and supportive when it comes to flexibility with working parents/childcare. The HR team were excellent throughout the recruitment process and helpful and slick with on- boarding.

Cons

I do not wish to comment here.

A high level of autonomy and the opportunity to get stuck in and hit the ground running.

How are senior leaders perceived at Chapman Freeborn?

Pros

I work amongst people that will be friends for life and the support from peers is great.

Cons

This is a global company but don’t expect the benefits and rewards seen by other organisations of the same size. For the long hours worked, there is little or no recognition with even simple thank yous not being said enough. The handling of covid was also disappointing and although unprecedented times, decision making was slow and information wasn’t shared with staff until last minute. Regular information sheets on well-being were circulated but that’s when the support ended. There was nothing from the company on top of this and my team didn’t even have an online call ahead of the Christmas season to bring everyone together. Like every company, the Christmas party was cancelled, as was every other event but this was an opportunity to think outside the box and potentially send staff a thank you gift at the end of the year instead, or organise something virtually for staff, to encourage teams to connect and engage remotely. Senior management can also be difficult to work with, being rude in their interactions and not listening to others, adding more pressure to a job that requires a lot of hours, sometimes through then night to secure a fixture with tight turnarounds. Lastly, having such a flat organisational structure, career opportunities are limited.
