    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Innovate UK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for a town wage

    Cons

    Bullying is rife from senior staff and anyone who isn't monitored closely. Bullies are almost always paid off and incompetence is also rewarded. The introduction of the new CEO assisted in this organisation becoming a hellish place to work. Directors have been and remain dangerously incompetent in HR, Finance, Communications and the CEO herself. Turning a blind eye and burying what's going on in her quest to be recognised by government. This organisation needs to be audited at every level.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Innovate UK for more than a year

    Pros

    flexible working arrangements, not much else

    Cons

    Gross inefficiency and inconsistency on how staff and contractors and projects are treated, lots of bullying and favoritism at the top with bias towards public sector organisations (university and other government departments) and harassment and intimidation of others, constant undermining of professional credibility, left hand not talking to the right hand, contractors consistently blamed for internal team issues, workload pass the buck culture.
