Going places, but slowly

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Plenty of scope, but management need an overhaul. Working conditions can be very relaxed, with many still working from home. Office work can be stressful depending on which management staff are in.

Interesting work. With variation and challenges working with contractors

Interesting and challenging work. Positve direction from Senior board and CEO. Unfortunatley this is not endorsed by everyone. Line management is poor and very inexperenced in leadership skills. No team working very Silo working and low moral. HE have positive values. Senior management do not endorse the mantra of working to these and are very selective when treating with consistency.All to interested in there own progression and Ego. Failing to focus and deliver team working ethic. Unfortunatley experience very negative experience with passive bullying which was shocking.

Pros

Local and good working hours. Good for training and development.

Cons

Ineffective line management, no leadership skills., Very dissappointing if you are un lucky enough to be in a bad team, with poor manager that does not support in delivering HE values.

Career Prospects?

HE as an employer has several benefits, great flexible working, good holiday allocation and 37.5 hour working week. However there are extremely limited opportunities to progress your career and salary prospects which does result in a high turn over of staff. They rely heavily on external consulant organisations to fill vacancies rather than prompt internally and develop their own employees and pay the market rates for these roles. I would think carefully about what you expect to achieve from working for the organisation, as generally guidance and direction from the senior management teams is often confusing generally conflicts with previous guidance given. If your use to working in fast pace environment with accountability and ownership I would think very carefully about taking a role with the organisation.

Pros

Flexible working environment

Cons

Poor senior management
