Great brands and some recent brilliant hires, workforce are hoping they manage to retain the new hires to help shift the company culture in a positive direction but concerningly a few have already jumped ship after a relatively short tenure.
There is currently no real 'leadership' with key positions constantly reacting and chasing their tails, this is demotivating the entire workforce. People management and communications skills are severely lacking across the leadership levels. Huge lack of alignment with the acting CEO and marketing management team, possibly too many 'yes' people in posts which means chaos has trickled downwards. Lack of accountability, transparency, honesty, needs a staffing shake-up to ensure fresh perspectives are welcomed, heard and actioned. Psychological safety is non existent. It's not currently a great place for women, too many micro aggressions from a day to day old school boys club, too many behind the scenes 'mates' conversations rather than upfront feedback at the time. Echoing other people's comments regarding the archaic culture, this fuels the lack of safe space to offer/receive feedback. Curiosity and learning can be seen as fiercely threatening meaning newcomers leave after a short tenure. The company's digital transformation ambitions are admirable and long overdue but the current structure is not fit for purpose and frustratingly very few things get off the ground to their full potential. Company values are disregarded, for example 'Embracing difference' is one of the company's core values, arguably it currently embraces anything but- background, gender, ethnicity or skillset wise... there's a mould you should fit to be heard. Diversity and equality are also met with token communications and no tangible action. On the shaky foundation of an already poor gender pay report, no CMO in post, a piecemeal and poorly communicated disguised restructure over the course of a year, numerous women leaders and great talent have since left out of choice, often without roles to go to.6

All of my co-workers were super friendly
An annoying commute since it is close to a large university.
