Featured Review

Former Employee - Executive

I worked at Charles & Keith full-time for more than a year

Pros

If fresh grad or entry level, there are opportunities to learn. Some people are very nice and friendly. Staff discount on company products

Cons

Turnover rate is very high - leads to constant re-structuring A lot of managers lack basic leadership and skills. Toxic culture, people do not take responsibility and push work to different teams,... some people who’ve been there for years get by doing nothing due to their ‘loyalty’. Family makes all the decisions. Very low pay. Some teams have no work life balance.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at MDS Global full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Opportunity to progress if you have the right manager Technical SME - There are some very intelligent and nice people at MDS and these are the ones who matter Fast paced & demanding -... Sink or swim, right for those who thrive in this environment MDS is good to get what you need but there is no real career prospects New CEO will hopefully take MDS to where it needs to be and make the changes necessary

Cons

Lack of Investment - MDS are 'behind the times' when it comes to technology and are adverse to change. Too many opinions from those who don't fully understand the actual needs for the business... because they are not close enough to the detail. So the wrong decisions are made or not made at all. Strategy - There is no CTO and therefore no real data/technology strategy to drive the business forward. Instead there are senior managers (who have only ever worked at MDS) who have little real industry knowledge. This leads to uninspiring leaders who drive an 'empire building' culture. Don't listen - Managers don't value the opinions and don't listen to those who have good ideas and so nothing changes. Those which do listen have little power to influence any change from a senior level. Demanding.- Under staffed on some departments (due to recent redundancies) yet other departments have too much resource because no real thought went into the redundancy structure - it was simply to cut cost. Those who are good are relied on heavily which others take advantage of, not enough drive or focus to ensure everyone is doing their own roles and doing them well. Hostility - There are personal agendas which affects business relationships. One senior person in particular thrives from intimidation, bullying and continuous complaints/grievances being raised making a toxic work environment.

Advice to Management

Culture needs to change - HR need to do more to ensure that change happens and stop accepting poor behaviour from those whom have weight in the company
