Not great
Derby City was a great place to work at one point and was supportive. However it became much worse after senior management changed and it became rather toxic.

Nice Team but Extremely Poor Management
Loved the the staff the clients and the role. However shifts often changed at last minute. Training activities scheduled on days off.Managers often nice but ineffective . High staff turnover which tells you plenty!

It doesn't really matter what or how much you do, if your face don't fit you're going nowhere.Its really important to learn this phrase 'YES', say yes to everything, even when you should be saying no.The management tend to be inept, unknowledgeable, naive, and in some cases vindictive, to cover up their own inadequacies and incompetence.At the ground level, there tends to be co-operation. Its management with their empire building, lack of integrity and bias that create the resentment.Nepotism is rife. Promotion and even keeping your job is based on being a mate.If you're not in the in crowd, then forget it.The amount of money that is lost through poor management is staggering. £50 million spent on a project, instead of the initial estimate £9 million, because management wouldn't listen and couldn't even ask sensible questions. Who got blamed, the poor sucker, given the job in the first place. More budget managers than there are people, doing the job!Just a staggeringly bad organisation.
