Senior Commercial Manager in Birmingham, West Midlands
on 8 August 2020
Highly Stressfull Working Environment
No sooner had I commenced than the Senior Director with overall responsibility for the business unit was raising the necessity for redundancies due to large losses on several projects. Within a month some staff were made redundant & others re-allocated to other Business units. There was no clear strategy to help the projects that losing money & unrealistic views on recovery of the losses & time scales to do so. Also unrealistic views & timescales put in place to investigate what was going wrong & how to address these major issues. This led to a very stressful working environment with constant meetings at different locations which involved substantial amounts of travelling, early starts & late finishes.
