management say all the right things, provide training for staff but in reality there is no support there for staff, they have given you the training now get on with it. Those working in the office seem to be happier in their job roles but the majority out in the sticks are forgotten about, they dont get the free tea, coffee and fruit, all the activities that go on in the offices yoga etc are meant for all staff but how are those outside the office meant to do these things in their lunch break , so you have 2 levels of workers.
If you can nod your head at the appropriate times and your face fits you will be ok, but those that try and stand up to things soon leave the company , they are here today gone tomorrow!!!!
Higher Management live in their own little bubble either they havent a clue whats going on lower down in the company or are choosing to turn a blind eye to everything, when questioning them on anything if its in their interest to answer they will otherwise they conveniently forget to reply !!!
If you are desperate for a job take it , get the training and move on to a better company that will appreciate the work you do, you only have to look at the staff turn over to see that this is what seems to be happening and that includes the COE position
