    Former Employee - Manager 

    I worked at PRS for Music full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Great people (workers, not management) Interesting range of opportunities if you know the right people!

    Cons

    Middle and senior management have not a clue. 80% have been there for a lifetime and any threat or hint of better people coming in is shut down with a union like force Diversity only in people, diverse voices not actually listened too or respected

    Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We appreciate hearing about your personal experience and are glad to learn that you enjoy working with your PRS colleagues and our great flexible working opportunities. I especially love our flexi-start and finish times and socialising at our fun events (albeit virtually of late). At PRS one of our key values is inclusion and we are committed to ensuring that our employees have equal access to growth and development opportunities. This year we have made great strides to build on our current diversity and inclusion strategy to ensure we are a truly diverse, inclusive and anti-racist organisation at every level. We have recently brought our employees together by hosting some listening focus groups sessions, where employees can share their lived experiences and feedback their ideas on what we need to do next and we are excited for the changes that are to come.

    old fashioned ways of working, no career prospects, out-of-date and not fit for purpose IT systems that IT management are desperate to retain. chaotic approach to running IT projects. very much a top-down approach to managing people. pay is terrible. middle management are more interested in keep their jobs than creating a great place to work.
