      Poor management

      Pros

      It's a job to tick you over in covid

      Cons

      Poor management, figures are fiddled to win contracts, it's all a hype, companies should see through the BS. You are dispenaible, they leave you hanging untill contract is up before offering you a new job or letting you go..we are human. Rel doesnt deserve to be in the top 15 employers..to fixated on awards rather than good management. Very few BAME senior managers, although many of the retailers are of BAME background. Extremely poor understanding of discrimination policies, more bothered about 'pride' but lack basic understanding of other peoples cultures or dietary requirements. BAME are treated like outsiders in the team. When people think Ramadhan is a day celebration, you seriously need to question where the problem of integration lay.

      Pros

      You dont have a manager breathing down your neck all day, can set your own schedule.

      Cons

      Very poor management, Power hungry managers who play games. They ask you to leave a glassdoor review immediately after your induction so they get you to review whilst ur in the early stages. Once the can of worms is open you reliase how unorganised the company is. They fail to recognise talent, the only requirement is brown nose the manager and you'll be fine. Poir representation of Minorities in Management positions, all they care about is figures....expect you to hit targets with sub standard support....and undeserving people in high positions, REL think they can send you a few snacks to eat and it makes them a great place to work?...there plenty of other companies you can work dont waste your time, too many power hungry loose women in the management positions.
