This is a company that promotes friends or sons/daughters of friends as favours. They do this because it then makes the "managers" look good by appointing incompetent managers below them. When these managers then go on to fail they are never sacked etc...instead they are simply moved sideways into other roles where they continue to inflict their incompetence on long suffering employees. It is a travesty that this is allowed to happen time and again and nobody does anything about it!
Conversely, under-performing managers are retained because they are dating their area manager and this too is covered up! A really terrible company to work for unless your father, mother, husband, wife girlfriend, boyfriend, etc is a manager!!!
NEPOTISM of the highest order!
