How is management perceived at Compare The Market?

Pros

CTM has grown and evolved a unique work culture over the years I have worked here. However, co-operation, openness and mutual support have always remained a part of the DNA of the culture, as the business has grown to the size it is today. The environment is, as you'd expect from a market leader, very fast-paced at times, but the variety of work you can get exposed to and the ability to both engage in many aspects of the business and be allowed develop into new roles, is a particular facet of working here, that has kept me at this place for over a third of my working life. In recent years the Graduate and Apprentice schemes have proved fantastic additions, if you're early in your career, this is a fantastic place to both learn and succeed quickly. On-site facilities are great and whilst there aren't quite so many team-level celebrations and fun things as there was a few years ago, there are good efforts to treat staff well, build positive cultures and foster a sense of fun whilst doing it too.

Cons

Never seemed to manage significant organisational change well. I've never worked for any company that has done this well in the past, but having been through a few now, with different goals and different management teams, it always comes with a disproportionate degree of disruption and staff disgruntlement. Slow to reward achievement and long service, both financially and through promotion from within, without some serious encouragement. Partly personal observation, but have lost several colleagues over the years as a result of them being openly discounted from succession planning for no legitimate reasons.
