      Doesn't know what it wants to be

      15 Apr 2021 - IT Specialist in London, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      30 days holiday - that's the only pro

      Cons

      Confused management, constantly changing direction on a whim and bringing in inexperienced 'managers' who only want to empire build. A once well respected name that is far from the 'best loved' aspirations the board have. The place is full of empire builders, trophy hunters, narcissists and sycophants who care nothing for staff. They say they care about the workers, but with outsources all over the place and ignoring experienced, once loyal staff, it's on a fast track to oblivion.
