Cartrawler has some of the best Tech qualified personal available in Ireland. Sadly though on the customer front there is a lack of understanding and resources to stem the 30% contact rate and 60% attrition rate.
When I first joined there was a fun, hardworking culture where effort was recognised and rewarded.
Now its just a hardworking company devoid of any teamwork, fun or morale among staff amid multiple restructures and people being let go without any exlplanation to those remaining leaving an uneasy feeling across whole departments and the organisation.
Some good genuine hardworking, clever people
Dynamic, high tech company where you can learn a lot
Nice office space
Doesn't pay well.
Previous selling points to work there around benefits and perks almost completely shelved and rolled back on since I started working there.
Very high pressure- unrealistic deadlines imposed upon your work from mgt who had little knowledge of the scale of task involved. Get it right and your manager did a great job on bringing it in on time, get it wrong and your neck was on the chopping block.
Hugely political organisation- promotions are based on being in the 'in crowd' or having worked previously in a certain online betting company.
Lack of career progression- save you fulfill either or both of the above criteria.
Lack of job security
Genuine,very capable people sidelined- saw multiple instances of workmates being passed over for less well able but politically well connected people.
Poor managment- misguide whole teams or departments along the way to demoralising those working with them without any evident purpose or end goal save for self aggrandisement of mgt.
Your ability to learn is dependent upon the luck of the draw- you can - more...
A company that is desperately trying to be many things but not succeeding at any. It wants to compete with the tech companies but cannot offer the same benefits and culture. It has become big corporate and many staff are leaving after many years of service disillusioned.
Over the last 12 months I have really seen a lack of any real guidance or plan in a number of departments. Departments have gone through multiple structure changes and people have been let o without warning or explanation to those left behind. This created a tense and unfriendly atmosphere with no real team morale. People were asked to completely change roles at the whim of management and did not receive any clear indications to what their goals or targets were and got no proper training in these new roles.
The people for the most part are sound
lack of leadership, lack of advancement, very poor benefits, below average pay
