    Cons

    Office politics sometimes borders on the precinct of crime, bullying an employee to work is acceptable because you get paid. But stealing from an employee to reduce their performances and put unnecessary pressure is totally acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    In an era where Barclays has received record fines, Tesco’s accounting irregularities. All leads should put in a lot more effort to ensure that teams work together to avoid irregularities. If yourcompany has corporate and professional ethics please adhere to these ethics otherwise staff will be demolished and unproductive

    No loyalty - if you don't get through the filter process, a clause in your contract allows them to let you go - several people suddenly disappeared while I was there No business creativity/diversification from the top - solely focused on a "More bodies sent to their sole customer equals more money" formula Laughable 1% annual pay rises - a very few get one or two more percentage points - you need to be a *very* squeaky...
