    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The company is a large global organisation with plenty of opportunities to progress and work in different fields of the IT Sector.

    Previous UK VP made it an enjoyable and sociable working environment with an open door policy and various social activities - nights out, lunches, charity activities etc.

    Actively encouraged to undertake training, company keen to develop employee skill set.

    Cons

    Once UK VP changed the lack of communication and direction from the board significantly reduced which caused unrest.

    Company currently going through a number of changes including consolidating UK office locations with 3 office closures having happened or happening in 2017.

    Outsourcing a number of roles to a shared services team in Poland, resulting in loss of jobs within the UK.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to keep your colleagues happy who in turn will keep your customers happy.

    Increase number of communications to colleagues in a bid to reduce unease surrounding current ongoing changes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics (Harlow, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    i was not given ample time to answer questions as my interviewer kept jumping in before i could complete what i had to say.It took several days before i could get a response aabout my interview and when i finally managed to get through i was given the bad news that i was not successful,I had fullfilled all the interview requirements including the numeracy test which i passed.The reason i was rejected was thaat i would not fit into the team,why i dont know?? I put it down to my skin colour as there was no logical reasoning behind my rejection,i had excelled in the numeracy and competency test so there was absolutely no other reason they could come up with.
