Marketing in South East

Great place to work
Worked at the EA for over ten years. Progression is possible and there are lots of opportunities to work across teams as well as additional training. Culture is fast-paced but supportive.

Poor structure, cliques, some great managers but rare
Say they welcome neurodiversity but in practice they do not know how to deal with it. It feels like lip service/surface level .Old structures and processes that are not fit for purpose and reticicent to change them even if there are better more efficent ways of doing it. Some great managers who are incredibly supportive but it is hit or miss. New starters can feel isolated. And if a process causes you distress they largely don't want to hear it. Which is fine to do if they didn't preach about how you should bring your full self to work etc.Many of the people are good people, but they are overworked in some cases and unsupported in others. I would not recommend. The EA for those with adhd/autism or anyone who neurodivergence is.more than mild.

Caring employer. Comfortable environment
My time with the EA although short lived, was inspirational, enlightening and fulfilling. Management team were very approachable with an ongoing open door policy. It really was a pleasure to work with such a dynamic team.

Well supported by managers.
A good employer who seems to genuinely care about it's employees. Work life balance is very good and opportunities for part time working after the initial probation period of 6 months.

Awful place to work
Don’t work here. It is soul destroying to see how employees are allowed to behave terribly and get away with it. This is a massive dinosaur of an organisation that wastes public money.
