      Relaxed with No Direction - GroupM Data & Technology

      27 Apr 2021 - Senior Site Reliability Engineer in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Salary is good. Relaxed workload stress. Job security is very good.

      Cons

      No direction. I've been there over a year and have been through a merger, they are now going through another merger within 6 months of completing the previous one. Management is poor and HR is a joke (non-existent) - I still don't know a single HR point of contact. No involvement in team interview process, had a new manager start and wasn't informed of his start date, likewise with new team members. HR systems used for finances, holiday etc are from prior to 2000 - a mess. Too many levels in hierarchy, a lot of jobs at the top which ultimately are just reporting levels.
