      Do any people feel like the anti-black racism conversation that ignited last year was sort of hijacked by the BIPOC equity movement? For example, Asian Americans make more money per capita and per household than all other ethnic groups in the US, by a significant margin, followed by white people, then latinos, and then black people. Have we lost our focus on who needs the most help in our industry and beyond? (I'll post links to sources below.)

    4. 3.0
      Current Employee, more than 1 year

      It's ok - but bare minimum on package

      Jan 14, 2021 - Head of IT Service Delivery in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People are great to work with. The CEO is good

      Cons

      But there is a "one-size fits some" approach. Very demanding from senior management, with not much time to deliver. You can negotiate at 2 stages with Capita: on the way in, and on the way out.

    5. 2.0
      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Average company to work for

      Jan 6, 2021 - Team Manager in Leeds, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexibility, good chance to work with likeminded colleagues (Team Manager level and below)

      Cons

      Progression is based entirely on who you know as opposed to what you know. Internal leadership roles, positive pay reviews and career advancement is reserved for colleagues who are close to the senior management team, regardless of their ability to carry out the roles. There is then a blame culture aimed at Team Managers and other lower graded colleagues to mask the inadequacies of Operations and Senior Operations Managers. Lots of great people met but poor senior management.

      Pros

      Good flexibility and great level of autonomy

      Cons

      Poorly thought through growth strategy given the poor financial position. Senior Management no longer respected. Passive aggressive style of unhealthy management that does not demonstrate a purpose led company.

      Pros

      Worked with a fantastic team

      Cons

      Useless and unhelpful manager, Overworked, disconnection of the senior management with the staff on the floor, brought in a manager from another Capita office to belittle, humiliate and bully you so you leave.

      Fantastic colleagues and good family/work flexibility
