    Pros

    Some good people, competent and nice to work with.

    Cons

    It is all about the profits now and the customer has been forgotten in all this. Some of the staff are just cruising and overly focused on the process and have lost sight of why they are there.

    Great potential. Hopeless management

    Nov 2, 2018 - Business Development Manager in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It’s a name that has heritage. Huge potential. Some great people in it. Unique capabilities which could lead to new developments.

    Cons

    Management overload. Constant micro management. No focus on future or investment plan and huge levels of job insecurity. A senior management team that patronises yet seems incapable of achieving anything. Constant internal campaigns trying to justify why they are making so many people redundant. Nobody knows what they are supposed to be doing.

We are ambitious and see the same huge potential that you have correctly identified and are determined to improve and address our shortcomings so would welcome the opportunity to discuss your specific concerns directly if you feel comfortable. Thank you again for your time.

    Pros

    Local to where I live Modern Campus Style Facility Low Cost On site Gymnasium Company contribution to Pension Dependant on which area you are working it is possible to build a good team ethos and win business Majority of colleagues are self motivated and hard working despite poor leadership

    Cons

    Incessantly reorganising at middle management level to no obvious effect Incredible levels and layers of management indecision to wade through in order to get things done Impossible or near enough impossible to react quickly enough to International Opportunities Relatively low salaries Incentive scheme which is more of a disincentive

    Pros

    Cons

    - Not the best or most consistent salary structure - Process heavy, risk averse, UK centric business - Still has many areas affected by the pre privatisation culture - Middle management led by process and lacking in leadership
