      Pros

      Progression - you really can go places in TP Support - everything is in place to support your progression from management development programmes to senior management development programmes from those who are aiming high and have the potential. The best at what they do, great stock range Good people Good benefits in terms of pension contributions, private healthcare etc

      Cons

      IT systems are awful. They started a project for a whole new IT system but this has been put on hold. It is desperately needed, this will hold the company back if it isn’t already Salary isn’t amazing A lot of people who won’t change and are stuck in their ways

      Pros

      Knows the business well, been there +30 years, has a lot of loyalty from personnel he has appointed over the years.

      Cons

      Not strategic, surrounded by yes men, brought in external people to most of the business unit boards who don't have the same values. Senior management get too involved in operational matters, and drags everyone down.

      DPD going downhill

      Pros

      Mostly good people, beautiful office, good variety of work, parent company is great and benefits are amazing. If you're someone who just wants a 9-5 job with decent people it's a decent place (unless you're in account management, in which case you'll be working all hours and should avoid)

      Cons

      Basically they got rid of everyone who ran the place for 20 years who actually valued staff. They brought in someone to 'commercialise' everything. Everyone who works directly for her seems to leave, and the decisions she's making are slowly eroding the family culture (staff she's hired at odds culturally with rest of office, no addressing of You Talk We Listen survey from January, focus on external opportunities/problems significantly outweighs focus on dpd itself). And as far as I can see, she doesn't even have a good grasp of finances. Senior management used to be accessible, and now they're stuck in meetings and not dealing with issues. People have stopped trying to give feedback because it's not appreciated. The second problem is the new workflow tool they brought in in November. It wasn't tested first, and it makes everything take three times longer than it used to. Account management is struggling and working a lot of hours. A lot of clients are refusing to use it because it's such a headache. The sad part is the issues can be fixed, but the person in charge is insisting it's working or making changes without consulting actual people who use it first. People have given up trying to talk to her about issues because she just tells them they're being negative. System needs a complete overhaul. Last year, about six people out of eighty people left. In the first three months of this year, eight people have left. I know others who are actively looking.

      Pros

      Engineering teams (at least some of them) genuinely have the authority to push back on project demands if they are not suitable or sensible. Individuals do have opportunities to get themselves heard and senior management often have open feedback sessions.

      Cons

      As with many multi-team departments, communication and coordination is very difficult which leads to delays with projects that should be easily avoided. Management can sometimes be more concerned with protecting their own teams rather than trying to work together to the greater good.
