      Nice ideas, no follow through

      2 Feb 2021 - --- in London, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent salary, new share options

      Cons

      Complex structure that doesn't work. Feedback system and employee management again complex and not followed. CXO communicate regularly but usually about whatever random things they're discussing not concerns of employees - all in-jokes. No career development. Nothing but lip-service paid to diversity and inclusion. Expectations essentially work long hours for no thanks
