A once great but now dying company
Very little management, virtually no training, everyone is very negative about the company and its prospects.
The technology being used is from the 90's (literally), yellowed desk phones, computers from the early 2000's, IT systems that are very old and often crash.
Working on paper in meetings is standard practice as there is no wi-fi and very few employees have laptops or work mobiles (only some managers). There is no facility to skype from one's desk, only basic email.
Most departments are lacking in core skills (and people) as the majority of staff are nearing retirement and too few younger people have been recruited and trained to replace them.
There is very little (really no) innovation, research, or real development.
Career progression is very very slow (6-10 years between salary bands is doing very well (and the jump will be less than £4000pa).
Good canteen, flexi time, unlimited overtime (1:1) for engineers.
Too many to list, see description below.
