  • On the subject of football, the only decent team left at Camerons where lawyers and support staff work together is its football team.

  • I've just seen the internal video Duncan Weston released to Cameron McKenna about his intentions. In a two minute video I've never seen so many cuts - he could barely string 2 sentences together without having to pause and shoot the next bit. Dreadful presentation. Frankly,I think Mr Cholmondley-Warner of Harry Enfield fame could produce a better video!

  • The biggest issue in many businesses is the lack of respect that they have for their employees, at whatever spot in the organization. Someone is useful one day and then deemed useless the next. Dunky is not unusual in this respect. Which of course means less loyalty all the way around.

  • Phew. Thank goodness the person who negotiated the disasterous Moscow joint venture (snatching losses from the jaws of profitability) is overseeing the transition to Integreon. What a relief.

  • It's very sad and short sighted. They will end up regretting this. Did they not hear how badly the outsourcing of Recruitment at Freshfields went??! They still haven't recovered. This is a big mistake.

  • Tell me this is just a bad Spaghetti Weston, but at £600m for 200 staff its not so cheap. These must be the best paid support staff in the city? Let's see what unravels.....

  • Job no 1 for the newly outsourced PR dept: deal with fallout from disastrous-sounding outsourcing move by short-termist, money-grubbing partners.

    Job no 2: find new job at law firm that values its staff.

    Job no 1: find new job at law firm that values its staff and forget the rest.

  • After listening to Mr Croft at a recent seminar, it's clear that Acronyms will be top of the agenda. We've got SMILE (Spreading Magic and Love Everywhere), SMART targets (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Framed - Do me a favour!) among i'm sure many others. So in keeping with US agenda....For me Integreon at Camerons = CRAP (Career Review Action Plan)
