Can be enjoyable…

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Can be enjoyable when the management plays fair. Seems to be inconsistency within their approach to work and team members at times. Time management seems to be forgotten by employees all over the site with jobs coming in needing to be done very quickly, with “months of planning” leading up to the panic.

Fast-paced and complex organisation with some excellent employees

I have two offices, one in Swindon and the other at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Didcot. I split my time between the two because I manage staff at both sites. The people I manage provide administrative support to the directors and chief executive of the organisation. These people are dedicated and conscientious, working in a busy and demanding environment. I take my management of them very seriously and often find this part of my job takes up a lot of my time. Then there's the other side of my role which is working directly with the CEO and the Chairman. I run all the board meetings, and on the days of those meetings, there's a tension in the air as my team and I ensure the meetings run smoothly, i.e. lunch arrives, taxis arrive, presentations are loaded, relevant papers ready, and all the time remaining clam and positive. The organisation is about to go through some huge changes, and there is tension building as people wonder what it means for them. Change is always difficult, but lack of control/information is highly detrimental to morale. The changes have been instigated by Government and the CEO and and his board are charged with implementing them. It is impacting negatively on the atmosphere in the offices and in some cases, pride in one's work.




Government interference!

A well supported staff framework but very convoluted Management style

The downside was people were compartmentalised in the work they did so some people had very narrow jobs which became boring. The salary is good, but the management structure is on too many levels and people felt left out of the decision making process when changes were made, which happened often




A plethora of committees and panels which overlapped

Centre de Recherche en campagne Anglaise

Situé en bordure de canal, à proximité de Warrington, entre Manchester et l'estuaire de la rivière Mersey située au sud de Liverpool. Le centre de recherche, du Science Facility Council possède différent axes de recherche dont Accelerator Science and Technologie Center. Il est spécialisé dans l'amélioration des sources de lumière type Synchrotron et a participé à la conception de Diamond. Le centre est petit, le bâtiment est neuf, les intérieurs sont lumineux. Des employés de toutes nationalité, un petit resto de qualité mais un peut cher. Beaucoup mange dans une salle commune qui est très agréable, aussi utilisé pour des réunions décontractés. Dans le village voisin, de Daresbury, est né l'auteur d'Alice au Pays des merveilles.
