Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) – 195 The West Mall – 22 June 2015
Began working here with many opportunities available, and a great amount of enthusiasm, however there is now a lack of leadership at the middle-management level which leaves many projects unfinished. Integration of the Nuclear team has created multiple management styles to conflict with no real resolution.
I love supporting the users that remain with the company, however the lack of recognition for the amount of work done is disheartening.
