All looks good once you start, but after a while the snakes come out
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) – London – 19 October 2018
I left a perfectly good and stable job to work for this place because of the false promises of advancement. The truth is, people do get promoted and often, but a lot of game playing, a lot of lies and a lot of manipulation comes with it.
Management is so incompetent because they got promoted within a couple of years having had no management experience whatsoever. You therefore get almost no feedback and then they’ll complain that you are not performing well. There is no such thing as constructive feedback so you are not even sure what it is you need to improve on!
It’s really a culture of work extremely hard (ie long long long long hours) and play hard (think lots of alcohol) and that may be fun for a lot of people but i know some people do feel pressured into going. The work life balance is therefore not so great.
