The ability is not opened to everyone including those who are in junior managers. especialy within the commercial department and the pay is not great for the work that you do onn day to day basis.

Extremely disappointed bullying is allowed - when complaints are made they are not followed through or investigated in any way. The programme manager is biding his time waiting for his retirement which he is counting down. Absolutely no idea how to run a department. Very laid back there; morale is low due to the inexperience of management. They should be trying to hold onto their staff who are in general very hard working.

Do you really want to work for an organisation where the client Depts rarely properly instruct you on why they terminated someone's job or are in a position to tell you whether the person got a dismissal appeal, let alone be able to tell you if they have the relevant appeal paperwork. If so then the mad cap world of the GLD might be what you are looking to avoid.
