    I have been working at Sagentia full-time

    Pros

    The projects are interesting and challenging The projects are diverse and you get to work on several a year My colleagues are incredibly intelligent, creative and interesting Most the people you work with are great people

    Cons

    The CEO is over controlling and management appear scared to make their own decisions at times. The employees should be celebrated more and treated more like the assets they are. Some colleagues are stuck in the past and over criticize every decision management makes, even the reasonable ones. Their attitudes have become toxic, they don't leave because Sagentia is still a great place to work but complain endlessly... about the good old days.

  5. "Interesting work, great people"

    I have been working at Sagentia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Projects are varied, usually challenging, and usually interesting. Colleagues are great people; they're happy to explain things, chat about their work, poke fun at the sillier projects... The Harston site is beautiful, especially in spring and summer. Offices are pleasant; open plan but rarely disruptively noisy. Socials and training are there, especially if you're enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Group exec are mostly distant and seem more interested in acquisitions than existing business. Publicly-limited nature of company means that shareholder value is more important than employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Even the appearance of recognition that the business depends on retaining brilliant people would go a long way.

    I have been working at Sagentia full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, incredibly intelligent, enthusiastic and fun to work with. Fantastic location, surrounded by countryside and mill. Great office space and facilities, though some need updating.

    Cons

    Senior management team are out of touch with employees. The reins have been tightened so much that staff are disheartened that all the company is now interested in is profit and not it's people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible to all the staff, not just the managers. Encourage feedback, act on it where possible and sensible. Come up with some better benefits packages to encourage commitment from staff, e.g. share-options, buy/sell holidays etc.
