Productive but not fun workplace
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London25 June 2017
A real and deep seated need to provide support services to blind and partially sighted people keep most people at RNIB much longer than the organisation deserves.

The halcyon days of working hard but also taking time to build working relationships over an occasional office tea party have been replaced with just hard work and silent offices.

I have learned is that even if you work hard, do not clock watch and receiving a consistently high appraisal mark year on year, this does not result in promotion or new opportunities.

Few members of the management team are respected. Even less staff

Workplace culture is to work, work, work and fit in. Putting your head above the parapet could be hazardous.

The hardest part of the job is knowing what a great organisation RNIB used to be.

The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the people we serve and seeing the positive impact our projects and services have made to their lives and that of their families.
Pros
Staff, canteen, flexi working
Cons
Organisational culture, no progression, management

Lovely people, but chaotic work environment!
Not supplied (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London19 June 2017
The vast majority of people are wonderful to work with, and even those not so wonderful aren't awful either - it isn't part of the organisations culture. Staff really care about the charity and the support it provides to blind and partially sighted people and enthusiastically throw themselves into work.

However, there is constant organisational change which makes it very difficult to be able to implement anything successfully without focus being constantly moved onto the next thing, while still trying to get those almost finished items in place. This makes it a rather chaotic place to work.

If change could be managed more carefully, it would be a fantastic organisation to work for.
Pros
Enthusiasm of staff
Cons
Lack of proper planning at top brings chaos
