Bullying, toxic culture and dysfunctional leadership

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There is so much bullying and a lot of it starts with the managers and senior leaders. There is a lack of transparency and recruitment to positions is on a 'who you know' basis. Depending on who you are, there might not even be a recruitment process!! I have witnessed bullying from very senior people but people are too scared to say anything and if they do they 'disappear'. Lazy people get celebrated and incompetence doesnt seem to matter either.

Pros

varied work, interesting work

Cons

bullying, dysfunctional leadership, toxic bullying culture, stressful

Job Culture

off task, gossipy

I've walked in to the a certain department and had them roll their eyes at me, have had them whispering, have heard them talking about other people in the dcc too. This team is supposed to be there to help staff. There is a lot of backstabbing and egos. My team is ok for the most part but it's hard walking on egg shells all the time.
