Limited Opportunity for Advancement
The organisation talks a good game about developing potential and career progression, but is culturally devoid of any evidence of this. In seven years I never saw one permanent internal appointment to management.
The best young talent in this organisation will continue to look elsewhere, as career progression is hampered by a level of middle management who 'pull up the ladder' on those beneath them.
This effectively creates a two-tiered system at sub-management level; 'The Dos' (competent staff who are being surpressed), and 'The Do Nots' (those who wouldn't last 5 minutes in the private sector).
