    Advice to Management

    KPI should set by market research, data, actual problem, consumer behavior and make sure it has a good return on investment not wasting effort Regularly review with staff on the work progress Management should increase local management concept and culture intelligence Reasonable employee benefit/allowance represents a respect for the staff and it's an investment for a company image as a global company

    I worked at Quandoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Motivational Team Flexible Working Great if your just out of uni, single mother type or simmilar who would rather work evenings/weekends than normal hours Open Culture Support if your in the South

    Cons

    Pay isn't great Unrealistic Targets for anything outwith London Poor Training/Development Poor Attitude Poor Ethics No Growth Beyond Sales Exec

    Advice to Management

    Good idea, pitching based on ramming the product down owners throats not so great. Product could be priced better/more competitive against some competitors. More flexibility on area and individual challenges per area - eg full target on a market saturated with Chains is not realistic unless signing large corporate deals - for this the competition is better. No comment on CEO - never met, surprising for a start up. Communicated that poor glassdoor reviews can be removed as the parent company now owns glassdoor, should be interesting to see how long this stays on for...

    I worked at Quandoo

    Pros

    good product with good pay but if you break it down the hours worked to pay its pitiful.

    Cons

    poor management, unrealistic targets even the so called managers couldn't do only way to achieve is to be n the northern team cass is class and spends time with the newbies unlike other so called managers who like to feel important when what they like to do is lunch and sort out private life.

    Advice to Management

    AS ABOVE

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Quandoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Young and fun colleagues to work with -Able to learn quite a bit in a fast paced environment

    Cons

    -No career progression as they mentioned -Hire-fire organizational structure! -Only cares about the result -Unrealistic targets

    Advice to Management

    Maybe the company should have more of a long-term vision rather than short-term sales mentality. Do not just hire and fire people whenever you feel like you don't need them anymore.

    Pros

    Not entirely sure. Good operations team and staff are generally nice people. Everyone is in the same struggle!

    Cons

    Low pay Poor commission Unrealistic targets Pass the buck culture. (not our fault, pressure from the top) Micro management to the point it's rude. No people management skills No employee benefits Expenses paid as and when they like, if ever. No training No recognition Long hours No value on employees Favouritism to anyone German.

    Advice to Management

    Learn a bit of respect and etiquette. Take a management course. Stop micro managing and actually start managing.

    micromanaging to a level that is unacceptable even for a 2 year old, favouritism, unrealistic targets and disrespectful attitude from management, people please read the contract before you sign

    Resign and let leaders take over, you are an embarrassment to leadership, be transparent and work as a part of the team
