    Technically interesting but awful culture and minimal management desire to change

    Dec 24, 2021 - Team Lead in Oxford, England

    Pros

    Technically interesting, great salary, great pension contributions, 6 weeks leave plus bank holidays.

    Cons

    Management don’t listen to feedback - regular employee surveys revealed same issues, executive team always seemed surprised, promised to make changes, nothing materialised, the cycle repeated. Management make commitments the business can’t possibly hope to meet. Deadlines are agreed without thought to whether there are enough people to do the work and meet existing commitments. Lots of burnout, defensive behaviour, etc, as a result. An example: on one occasion I was told on a Friday afternoon the a feature was needed to be implemented by the Monday morning and that not achieving it was not an option. My team already had other commitments that needed to be met by the end of the week and when I said that one feature would come at the cost of the other, I was told that’s not good enough. This was a common occurrence. Many of the senior managers have worked at Nominet for many years. I got the impression that they had their own little empires and no interest in other ways to work. Rather than take suggestions for improvements and optimisations as positive they were viewed as threats and challenges to these empires.

    The drunk leading the blind

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, very on-top of Covid and working from home.

    Cons

    Management seem to consider the best way to do things and then do the complete opposite. They know what should be done, but seem determined to do the wrong thing! Making tonnes of cuts on lower paying roles and investing in more "managers" to sit around a table and talk rubbish. Eventually they'll go to pass the work down to the do-ers and realise they got rid of them all to save money!

    Pros

    None, there are no pros all negative.

    Cons

    1. Do no invest in current employees like they claim but instead they pay more to new starters. 2. Belittle people during meetings 3. Long hours and no structure to work load Would happily go work as a cleaner or bin man then working here

    Pros

    Colleagues in IT Facilities do a great job

    Cons

    Senior management seem too concerned about glossy internal promotion about themselves (including support functions) especially about company values etc and not so focused on producing quality outputs and supporting front line teams.

    Great culture and work life balance

    Pros

    The people at Nominet are great to work with. They are a great team of people with expert knowledge who want to work together to get the job done well. The company really cares about the wellbeing of the staff. The company is ambitious and wants to improve and add more value, including a great public benefit mission. Very flexible working arrangements and good work life balance.

    Cons

    The ambition can mean there are too many competing priorities making it hard to focus. Or jumping from one critical deadline to the next without time to breathe. The differences with some of the membership causes instability and distraction from time to time.
