Company Culture

British - small minded, amateur managers with little experience outside of this company

Support from management

Management is terrible - all self promoters, no focus on developing younger people

Freedom to work independently

U.S. managers are puppets & "yes men" for UK directors who make ALL important decisions.

Internal Communication

U.S President is a joke - very shallow person.

Gender Equality

U.S. President has hired no women in positions of authority - seems intimidated by them.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior management are mostly older and very complacent - but examples for younger, more talented employees. Sales Manager doesn't even have a college degree.

Career Development

None. Young, talented people should use this place as a stepping stone to get to a more professionally run company.

Overall compensation for your work

Decent benefits.

Office / Work Environment

Office layout decided by British boss - mostly non-private cubicles.

Work-Life Balance

Completely driven by day to day busy work - no focus on long term or strategy. Great place to ruin your career.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to employees & senior management must learn to accept feedback & criticism - they are not perfect and must learn to receive bad news when it should be dealt with. Current environment tends to penalize people that raise difficult issues that need to be dealt with.
  • Need some turnover at board level. Delegate decision making - the board seems to think they still need to control all decisions, which was more sensible when the company was MUCH smaller.

What I like about the company

Quite a few talented people, mostly below senior management level make it an interesting place to work

What I dislike about the company

Unless you are British, there is little chance or meaningful career advancement & company does not invest in younger people to grow them. Too many "yes men" in management. Senior management is very willing to criticize people based on hearsay, yet are completely dismissive when any criticism comes their way.
