Pay is quite good. Office facilities are good. Can work from home quite a bit if in certain roles.
I worked here as a contractor and found the attitude of my managers appalling towards me. I was constantly isolated from the rest of my team, never told about projects or work taking place and then... at meetings they would berate me for not knowing about work that was happening after they had kept it to themselves. No communication whatsoever from my managers except to complain. My own line manager didn’t speak to me for the last 4 months of my employment. Whenever I wanted to speak to him, I was told he was too busy. In other words, everything else was a priority except speaking to the people working for you. On top of this there is an office management team who basically rule the office with bullying, power crazed and are petty in the extreme. Stuff such as complaining I had asked to be supplied a floor port number which involved them looking under the desk which would take 5 seconds for them. Instead, they chose to spend time mailing my manager to complain and force me to stop what I was doing, walk up a flight of stairs then grab the number. All because they see that as beneath them. Management were so scared of them thst instead of backing their team, they would acquiesce to every petty demand and never stand up for the people working for them. Lots of the staff are quite arrogant, look down on others and think others are there just to serve their whims . Basically if you are not in the clique, forget any progression or even interesting work. I worked on a project that involved 15 hour days and working 3 weekends in a row. Instead of being given any thanks, the smallest of things were picked on and complained about. There is a real culture of making yourself look good by pulling apart the work of others. My own line manager never even had the balls to tell me they were only renewing my contract for a short while. Instead I had to drag it out of him. If it was up to him, I wouldn’t have been told anything. Work life balance can be very poor with staff often starting before 8am and not going home until 7pm, even later in some cases. They even introduced a travel policy that demanded staff get early morning flights meaning they often had to leave their houses as 3:30 am, fly to Germany then head back in the evening. They would then be expected to be in the office for normal hours the next day.
Advice to Management
Grow a pair and back your own teams up instead of kissing office managements backside just because they are also PA’s to a board member. Try actually talking to your team members a bit more and... also try being honest. Drop your arrogance and stop trying to make yourself look good by slagging off other people and teams work.
