How is management perceived at Czarnikow?

Pros

Good office location Fairly young and friendly members of staff.

Cons

Lack of structured support and progression for new joiners despite being sold this in the interview as one of the main things Czarnikow provides its employees - more of a 'pile it on top' culture. Fairly hierarchical company. Whoever has been there the longest says how things go and new ideas take a very long time to implement as a result. Middle management is poor across the board and does not provide any sort of structured guidance to their subordinates (similar to the first point). Bog standard office. Nothing fancy.

Advice to Management

Don't sell yourself as something you're not. We both know there are a number of staff members who have been at the company a long period of time and are not open to any new ideas. Best to move them on and replace them with fresh new ideas in order to grow the company further.
