If you like to be bullied, harrassed, and do as your told.. work for DSTL
Initially I was excited to work at Dstl, but found that a lot of unqualified Team Leaders and Project Managers who have no idea of how to treat skilled resource demeaning. This resulted in a culture of bullying, harassment, and intimidation, an attitude of put up or shut up. Some Team Leaders let the management structure of Dstl down, and would not be able to work in the private industry. Such behaviour would not be tolerated, and they would be held to account of their actions.
Some Team Leaders within the Platforms Division are not fit for purpose, they see skilled people as a threat to their positions, and would therefore micro-manage unnecessarily where such behaviour results in the workplace atmosphere being untenable.
There is also a culture of favouritism, if your face does not fit, you will not be there for long, irrelevant of being able to deliver your role and responsibilities.
Wishing anyone who is looking for opportunities there the best of luck as they will need it.
Management ie. Team Leaders in Platforms Division having no idea on how to treat people fairly.
