Administrator (Current Employee) –  Hertfordshire12 July 2019
Higher management non transparent with matters directly affecting their workforce. De-banding and relocating staff to bases miles away from original work bases. Staff feel undervalued and let down by seemingly inept senior management. Whenever possible not paying redundancy using 'reasonable' requests as basis.
Pros
none
Cons
staff reductions, workloads increasing, de-bandings, poor pay
