Terrible management, bad working culture
My team was based at Sale Waterside. Flexible hours pattern is great for work / life balance. The majority of staff are brilliant, lovely people who work hard.
There are some amazing managers at Trafford but there is also a horrible culture within some teams with managers who abuse their power. Unfortunately mine was one of the latter, directly resulting in me (and many other colleagues within a short time period) leaving jobs we enjoyed and a team we loved. Unfortunately Trafford do not investigate managers who are unable to retain staff.
The manager did not do any work or contribute anything positive to the team and created a very low staff morale with a tense, oppressive atmosphere. Also delegated her role out to the rest of the team, then micromanaged and watched every move the team made - a complete waste of Trafford's money - and a very stressful environment for a great team.
Hopefully Trafford will use any feedback from past employees in a constructive manner, as intended by Indeed, in order to make changes and help to retain staff by improving their working conditions and emotional wellbeing.
Flexible hours, great colleagues
Bullying culture, managers who abuse their power
