Can be slow in making changes and decisions. Sometimes, more transparent communication from management would make staff feel better valued.
Advice to Management
Make time to listen to staff, and be more transparent. Not only to staff, but externally.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VSO (London, England) in June 2016.
it was a long process from original application, after online situational judgement questions and then an assessment day where we were assessed on different situations and interviewed extensively on our opinions, what we wanted to do for the company etc. they gave us different tasks to look at and had to decide on the best strategy to approach the situation.
