Quality Professional

Mar 2021

Quality Professional

New South Wales, Australia
5 to 6 years in the role,

Poor management!

The good things

Collaboration is the most important value in the organisation. It is not acceptable to provide constructive feedback for any incompetencies, especially leaders. Leaders are always right. They are so good in their job that you cannot challenge them. They love giving opportunities to inexperience people by hiring cheap for senior roles. Fresh graduates are encouraged to apply for managers roles.

The challenges

You will be told that you are not collaborative if you challenge the leaders. They keep lowering down the salary, replacing experienced staff ( left because of bad management) with people who are not even qualified for these roles, These leaders have no idea what they are doing, creating the most toxic and destructive culture.

Working for a company that had such a high turn over or staff. In roughly 6 months we had 5 different area managers who all had to add change everything to suit them & it just ended up a giant mess. They claim to be “flexible” & will always understand when you can’t work for various reasons. They don’t.
