      Toxic/Chaotic working place

      19 Oct 2020 - Sales in Sydney

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Colleagues were the only good thing.

      Cons

      - Not every manager is a leader. - the company’s motto “helping customer to enable to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer” does not apply to ANZ business. Only few people take this vision statement to heart and all others are after sales funnel and targets. If targets are not met, managers put you on PIP without giving warning. - every individual learn at different pace, especially for someone who just started the role/ new to the industry. This is not a company for a graduate because they do not have effective training programs that cater to graduates and people who are new to the industry. - if you are looking to work in a pressure built environment , this is the perfect job but if you are looking to grow into the role please do not apply to this company. They will look at the numbers. Employees are just numbers. - the human resource is also very biased; they only listen to the management. So do not waste time talking to anyone, they don’t listen instead they blame you for complaining. - They do not train you on the analytics programs and database; they expect you to learn it on your own on your time. - The company makes you feel alone and gossips make it very toxic environment to work. - they presume that the pay they give you compensates for the pressures but NO it does not. In short don’t work for this company. It’s just a pressure cooker where managers use micro managing, intimidation to get the work done.
