They are a bunch of bullies.

Bully team leaders. Never believe the lies about being bullied is not allowed ,they do it and let it happen. Team leaders will belittle you on site ,over the 2way and it's ok with management.

Pros

None

Cons

Team leaders are bullies.

a productive day is challenging but not too stressful

a typical day for me is either work-shopping with the stakeholders to plan/schedule the upcoming project or reviewing the analysis of the project performance and compiling a recovery plan for the lost progress.

review of culture

simple company with simple outlook. They employed a lot of good people and recognised their efforts. Some senior directors/COO's were extremely old fashioned in their ways and managed via threat and not by applying leadership.

Pros

people

Cons

Senior managers living in the past
