How are senior leaders perceived at Intercity Technology?

Pros

People, Portfolio, Culture of the business is very good. O f course there have been mistakes made in the last few years but so has every business given the transformation from 3 companies into one in our fast moving marketplace. Leadership now seems better, COO is making a real difference to how the business operates and CEO is back more involved. Still a long way to go but when talking to customers our story is astounding, we just need to do more of it.

Cons

Leadership and focus has been a problem, but that seems on the right path. Once the Head Office is completed and Sales improves the growth potential is huge.

Advice to Management

Keep being honest, commit to work as hard as the staff do, be transparent and we will give our best.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Intercity Technology?

Pros

- Supportive of future development - I have fairly frequent one to ones with my manager and have my future goals clearly laid out for me, all of them are reasonable and I leave those meetings feeling motivated rather than feeling like I have been told off for an hour. Obviously this may vary from manager to manager but a lot of people I have spoken to feel the same way. There is a great scheme which recognizes people from all different departments when they have done good work, which I like because it doesn't just feel like anyone gets left out. - Friendly atmosphere - There are a lot of events and little competitions which is always nice, especially since we are all spread across the country so it makes us feel more connected. - Always a lot going on and real focus on the future - The company is moving in a clear direction which we get updated on frequently. - Really great senior management ( well at least the senior management that I have worked with have been really supportive).

Cons

-If you work at one of the other offices then the trek to the Birmingham HQ can be a pain but most roles are flexible and most people in other offices don't have to travel there too much.

Advice to Management

Keep future plans less complex, sometimes its better to promise a bit smaller and deliver better. Than to come out with a really complex plan which has more chance of over running. There is always more time to continue to develop; it doesn't have to be massive leaps all at once, we understand things sometimes take time.

The company is moving in a clear direction which we get updated on frequently.

How are the career development opportunities at Intercity Technology?

Pros

Great atmosphere. Friendly & supportive staff. Decent opportunity for progression.

Cons

Poor pay in comparison to similar jobs. Bonus scheme is company wide, so if Sales staff don't cut the mustard nobody gets a bonus.

Advice to Management

Try to make your staff feel valued. Seriously consider reviewing baseline salaries that haven't changed in over a decade.

Decent opportunity for progression.
