    I have been working at Rank Group full-time

    Pros

    Huge opportunity to drive change given previous relaxed culture around delivery. Friendly environment and people showing they want to deliver even though partners hold us back

    Cons

    Senior leadership team do not appear aligned or even fail to understand the need for change given the honestly crap ability to deliver anything in the past, from projects to financials. They are causing the toxic environment and need to buck up

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your people, sort out your partners and motivate people to succeed ...

    I worked at Rank Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good people to work with Opportunity to get experience

    Cons

    You will have to constantly deal with politics, decisions will appear to come from nowhere and you will have to get good at playing the blame game.

    Advice to Management

    Notice who is there to feather their nest and get them away from anything important, let them play politics in the corner and bring up those that are in it for the good of the company. No opinion on the CEO, it's not an easy situation to fix, over the years the company has accumulated a lot of bloat which needs to be shed.
