Very long standing issues, ask anyone in the industry about the "sausage factory". Good luck to Jennifer.
With the appointment of Jennifer Duvalier in April as nob-exec, who's expertise is in people & culture strategies, I'd hope the internal issues would improve. Preliminary results tomorrow will give us an indication, we need some positive news if this share is to get out of the doldrums.I am a long term holder here and dismayed by the downward 'progress' of the share price. Recent board appointments have not impressed so far and the sudden departure of the CFO is worrying.
2LB (1733)Used to work for an IT Plc years ago. CEO had the same idea of sending 'everyone' on a jolly at a Golf Club - 4 weeks later the Administrators were brought in...
Are these issues new due the new management or has this been there for a while.
We have a major problem hiring new people. Experience hires know that ncc is the sweatshop version of assurance and know that you have no life and are always away from home. New hires don't know what ncc is like but take 6 months to train who either leave for more money, or don't make it through the training due to lack of leadership. Im meant to be an associate and work parttime hours but Im now doing a 65 hour week.
Interesting post above from someone actually in the Assurance division. Thanks for the input. Final results to be announced next Tuesday, 17th July 18.
NCC has lost a lot of staff, and still is, and did make redundancies as to the rest it doesn’t sound real. The views of people elsewhere in the Group is pretty low though, so results will be interesting.
We just go for the free holiday, food and beer. Most of the management sessions are just hot air and false promises. I'm handing in my notice when I get back home and many others are doing the same. We just used the conference as a leaving do.
I wonder how much it costs to fly 500 people over the Madrid for a week plus all the accommodation, beer etc. £1m?? Great for short term morale perhaps but seems a tad OTT when it just means a chunk of people stay a bit longer.... I'm still trying to work out the strategy / plan moving forwards for NCC.
They are losing assurance staff. I'm a associate consultant but we have lost so many staff in cheltenham so I'm now classed as a consultant even though I'm an associate. Its just a title on paper to make it appear staff numbers are the same. Other offices have the same problem. Even sales staff are leaving. Only 2 devs are left in the client services team as 2 more devs quit this week. Management know its a problem but try and force us todo over time and to make it look like they don't loose staff they have secondments so people can do sales or project planning as well as consultancy so it looks like the same level of staff but many staff wear more than one hat. I'm leaving soon too, and lots of other people are doing the same after the conference.
I understand that the main people who have left are in admin functions. I would be worried if they start losing Assurance staff. Last year they reported staff turnover to be 21% so need to see if this has deteriorated.
Im worried about the update as i hear ncc are losing so many staff either by people leaving or redundancies. i dont have any faith in adam pasler either.
I too have NCC Group Shares and just want to make sure that posts are based on good information and not ulterior motives.
If I didn’t own so many NCC group shares I’d find this whole thread hilarious.
Just a suggestion guys - shall we go back to sharing opinions and 'inside knowledge' / gossip / hearsay about the company we all hold an interest in? Doesn't matter who is who. Whether it's Chris Stone hating on Rob Cotton for real (or vice versa) or some other random poster who has the same views, it doesn't really change anything. Essentially if you want to come on here and anonymously slag people off, and that makes you feel better about your life - go for it. Shame though.
I don’t think RFC27, you quite understand the purpose of this site, although the clue is in the name. It is a site for anonymous people who have an interest in NCC Group shares to post their views and opinions on the company and its management. Similar to RedCafe for United fans. On there anonymous fans give views on the manager, owners and players without having ever met them. On that point you have criticised LVG, Moyes and many others on your twitter site and you don’t know them personally. Are you sure you have never posted before? What about Whatever13 on this site or Questioning on the LSE chat site. Someone called out Questioning for being Rob Cotton and then both users did not post again. As for ynwa1, why is ynwa1 so keen to defend you. However earlier ynwa1 talks about how well the company was built by Felicity and Paul E but fails to mention you. Very odd unless ynwa1 is you! Also if ywna1 is not senior then how does he/she know how the board made decisions and who was or was not consulted about Fox IT. None of this stacks up. ywna1 says it was a great company to work for but never mentions Cotton yet seems to have views on all other senior management.
Should of bought more popcorn 🍿
So lets clear this up, for those of you who know me thats my number plate, no silly names or disguises, not necessary. Yes it is me and I am rather fed up being accused of being an anonymous poster!!!! So, I have never been on this board or any other. I have kept my powder dry whilst others have told me of the most ridiculous comments made about me, many false and many hurtful over the last 18 months. To be clear, I still hold 3% of NCC Group, an organisation I remain immensely proud of, so why would I make postings to create a fall in value is a little beyond me. Billy Wizz I do not know Chris Stone, I have never met him but I have heard the factually incorrect statements made about be me, it is not the way I personally would conduct business. If that alias is you then I am sorry but it is a bit sad, and for the first time in my life I must agree with a Liverpool fan. I have spoken to and speak regularly to current investors and people still in NCC Group and their views tend to support a lot of the comments on this Board. Yes I recruited Brian Tenner. He was an excellent candidate and he was also interviewed by all of the Board who unanimously ratified the appointment. Yes there was concern about his exit at Scapa and yes he appears to have repeated this. Again, yes the Board and investors approved the acquisition of FoxIT, it hit its numbers in the first 6 months and it was not expected to be earnings enhancing until into year 3. This is clearly stated in the market documents still available online. No decision in any organisation is the CEO's alone and certainly not at €130m. I am not returning to buy NCC but I am returning to the industry albeit in the background. I am very pleased that the NCC Group Board reported that this years numbers will be achieved as that will help increase the share price in NCC Group which we all want. And so as to close the loop, if YNWA is who I think it is, it is a she!!! If it is who I think you were a real asset to the Group. So this is the one and only post I will make on this board or any other share board, but do feel free to contact me I'm on LinkedIn and you can make those personal digs at me with out the cloak of anonymity, lets see how brave you really are!
I think you need to go and get some serious help Chris Stone. I am very happily employed working in a IT business in Manchester, the remaining friends at NCC know who I am and think it’s hysterical. I won’t criticise people in public that I do not know enough about and I certainly don’t make stupid accusations, I wasn’t senior enough to be anything other than I was grateful for the opportunities given me. I am sad by the amount of long servers leaving, it was a great place, there is nobody left in finance, legal, escrow ops or IT projects who has over 12 months service, half the escrow sales team has gone, 2 of the best escrow managers fired, I can go on and on. I am sorry but you have real problems.
The great reveal. ynwa1 is Rob Cotton. I read his posts and was trying to see if he would even slightly criticise himself and prove me wrong. Read our exchange and see who is angry and who is bitter about the new management team. See who hates Stone (apparently me) with vitriol as he publicly criticised Cotton on camera. He even tried to use a Liverpool FC associated tag as everyone knows that he is a Man United fan. Now who is sad?
So it is definitely Chris Stone. How ridiculous. You need to get some help for your obsession, why are you so angry? if you believe one person causes a company to stumble that is your own view but its a bit sad. Its like saying we are only as good as Mo Salah, how stupid is that but then you are known to have a massive ego and no people skills, and lets face it its easy to blame others, lets see what you deliver apart from loads of people leaving and huge consultancy bills delivering nothing new. As reminder a company is made up of NEDs, Executive Directors, MD's, Ops Directors, Tech Directors, CTO's, Managers and employees and you think it is one person's fault, you are a very sad individual. I came on this Board as an ex employee (I had a very happy time there) and shareholder (SAYE schemes), to expose what my friends had told me about the internal politics of the hated CFO's leaving (and leaving a shambles and joining another company as CFO, makes sense that one) along with the dreadful people management of the Board thats destroying a good company, not to listen your ego of blame.
Might get the popcorn out whilst this exchange goes on. Everyone seems to forget that opionion ( and that’s all I’m seeing here ) is never right or wrong - it’s simply someone’s point of view. Amusing as this exchange is it doesn’t seem to be a good use of anyone’s time. Funny though.
So just to be clear you don't blame Cotton for anything at all! He was wrongly fired by the board!
