      Bullying and sexism

      Sep 22, 2021 - Assistant Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The organisation has central offices in large cities.

      Cons

      The business allows for bullying by senior staff. The organisation pays male staff huge amounts more than their female counterparts. Women do not have a seat at the table. The organisation belittles mental health. The organisation ignores complaints and does not follow best practice. The HR do not follow company best practice, Acas guidance or the demonstration of appropriate behaviours when complaints are raised.

      Good company to work generally

      Aug 29, 2021 - Senior Project Manager in London, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible working, nice people, interesting projects, fantastic team work, career progression for some people in various sectors & great learning in many aspects, no regret at all.

      Cons

      I felt it’s only a tick box for the company image regarding promoting the diversity or females in power. I’m reality, it’s very male dominated company. It didn’t apply to me despite I am a very ambitious person with a great attitude to work & years of experience, very disappointing. The management didn’t support the above. The choices were to change the sector or leave the company to get a promotion after years of being at Mace. No payrise as kept hearing you haven't progressed higher; but in essence, they wouldn't allow/ support the progress. I left eventually, got permission & delivering high profile projects very successfully.
