    3. 1.0
      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      Old Management style

      Jan 22, 2020 - Engineer in Townsville
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ghd offers a Stable work environment.

      Cons

      No flexible hours/office. No life work balance. Overtime is always expected. Old school management. I.e top down management where the lower tiers have no say. No to very little respect for personal time. No time for training or team building as it eats into your utilisation. Can't transfer to other offices as it is soley reliant on your office managers' discretion.
