    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at TDX Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A small amount of good people left but it dwindles all the time.

    Cons

    The good folks left a looong time ago so now it's a highly concentrated toxic pit of mostly awful people.
    Terrible management without a clue how to manage or treat people.
    HR protect their nasty managers - seems short sighted as the good ones will always leave, wash rinse and repeat.
    They really don't like people to show any personality here so if you're the personification of the colour grey, you'll fit in fine.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and bring the best out of staff. Ditch the useless managers who are only managers because they've been there 15 years or sucked up to someone.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    A workforce who will find a way to succeed.
    A senior management team who try to keep a happy workforce.
    Generous packages and social benefits.

    Cons

    Still coming to terms with being taken over by a megaconglomerate.
    Unclear landscape; who is TDX, who is megaconglomerate?
    Lack of investment where it is really needed.

    Advice to Management

    Make people feel like they belong with genuine commitments. Build a relationship with the workforce and use spokespeople who have respect. Identify a clear strategy and don't put people down when it isn't their fault.

    Pros

    Pay arrived in my account. Good location.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Senior management couldn't care less about the business. They consider the 200 million Equifax paid a joke and a rip-off, most will say Equifax never did their diligence on the company, so they over paid by 2x. They have no respect for their clients, essentially the other internal joke is that they take the customers assets and sell them back to them. They add no value to recoveries, any company can get better performance on their own (and TDX knows this and is very afraid they will be found out). TDX flat out lies on all their forecast they give clients, they literally make up numbers. They have never returned any value to any client. The pay is poor, management woeful, and people just don't care, it's a terrible place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep riding it out as long as you can... you have nothing to really offer, and will soon be discovered as the fraud you really are.

    I have been working at TDX Group full-time

    Pros

    There are two good things about TDX Group:

    1) The offices are in a great location
    2) Work life balance is good

    Cons

    There are far too many problems with TDX Group to list, but here are the main ones:

    1) Poor leadership
    2) A self-interested CEO
    3) Lack of interest in employees development
    4) Bad practices
    5) Poor quality systems and computer equipment
    6) No investment in talent
    7) A confused start-up/corporate culture
    8) Below market average pay and bonus
    9) Lazy and lethargic IT department
    10) A complete lack of accountability and responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Remove all of the current leaders and managers in the business and replace them with people who care about staff, quality of work and accountability.

    Pros

    Some good people (as with most places so not really a pro)

    Decent location (if you don't mind paying for parking)

    Cons

    Cliquey; if you haven't been there for at least 4+ years it can be impenetrable with blatant favouritism order of the day.

    I have never worked in any company big or small with so many utterly incompetent, anti-human, self-congratulatory managers. It's a sycophant's paradise. Some incredibly unfriendly, hostile staff.

    Empire building and purposeful lack of knowledge sharing is common throughout the business.

    The decent, friendly people often don't stay long as they stand out like a sore thumb in a usually very serious and dull atmosphere.

    Untrustworthy senior HR staff who are often close friends with various managers, further exacerbating the clique mentality.

    Echoing others reviews things went further downhill after Equifax took over. Everything became urgent with ever greater pressures exerted down the management pyramid. They also made an entire department redundant then shortly after put their own Equifax people in place.

    Outdated, irritating American corporate propaganda is spoon fed to you on a daily basis.

    Noisy open plan office. No real parking so you have to pay for car parking in Nottingham.

    Advice to Management

    Make real efforts to encourage cohesiveness and effective team work - cliquishness is bad for moral, bad for business.

    Cull the anti-social managers with zero people skills - to lead is to inspire and bring the best out of people, many fail entirely at this.

    End the mind-numbing corporate propaganda, it only fosters disdain.

    I worked at TDX Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good co-workers, good software, Pluralsight accounts, good staff nights out and other entertainments. If you are a full-on corporate a**e-licker there might be a future here for you, that or if you're a toothsome maiden.

    Cons

    Salaries are below market average, This tended to be made up by the annual bonus, but this was only ever given to the Nottingham office. The Leeds office, for reasons which varied year-by-year (and frankly sounded like little more than cheap excuses) never got bonuses. Senior management may not be complete strangers to honesty, but sometimes it feels like it.

    Advice to Management

    Staff do not like to have their intelligence insulted again and again. The new American owners, Equifax, seem to think that regular updates using the most cringe-worthy language will have an affect. We are British, and capable of some measure of independent thought. Don't patronise us.
