I worked at Innovate UK full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay for a town wage

Cons

Bullying is rife from senior staff and anyone who isn't monitored closely. Bullies are almost always paid off and incompetence is also rewarded.

The introduction of the new CEO assisted in this organisation becoming a hellish place to work. Directors have been and remain dangerously incompetent in HR, Finance, Communications and the CEO herself.

Turning a blind eye and burying what's going on in her quest to be recognised by government. This organisation needs to be audited at every level.

    I worked at Innovate UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my job until a new Manager joined and the atmosphere in the section changed no the bullying and harassment started. This was not only in the section but in several others too. Would I work for this company again not until thagement has been sorted out as well as the HR section.

    Cons

    Bullying, harassment o chance of progression within the company

    Pros

    Very good pay for a short term contract. Friendly team and standard 9-5 working days. Office very accessible in Swindon town centre.

    Cons

    Some of the work became very laborious and repetitive. As the nature of a short term contract there was no room for movement.
