  • Concentrate on the £££s

    ... not the pennies. I have never seen such a shocking waste of IT budget as at CC - perhaps we should look at the waste of millions of pounds of failed IT iniatives rather than the pennies saved in cutting back on sandwiches!

  • Bin the records staff, not the sandwiches

    Or perhaps we could save money on all these pointless managers in Business Operations and Records who are getting good salaries for what they do - but for what? Do we really need up to 20 records staff and two supervisers and a manager who actually doesn't seem to do anything?

    From what I hear and see they don't have much to do and with the intro of file and go, etc, here is a good focus for us to cut more costs, not our sandwiches.

  • Inspirational

    yup, the managing partner only talks to us to tell us off - either too many missing timesheets, too many taxis, now we are eating too much food. Really feel valued.

  • Records Costs

    Re the anonymous comment about the cost of records staff, if the person posting understood the risks to any firm not having a good records team / policy in place, they'd realise it's a small price to pay.

  • Still good value

    Well, even with the 6 per cent increase I can get an excellent meal here for less than it would cost me to make it at home. (It would be nice to get a 6 per cent pay rise though...)

  • CC canteen food - please don't supersize me

    I used to work at CC and the canteen food was mostly overcooked cardboard - they should pay people to eat it!

    This latest move follows earlier bold strategic initiatives in 2002 such as stopping biscuits for internal meetings. If people are giving hours of their life to help the firm by working late, can't the firm even afford to pay for a taxi to take them home?

    CC is out of touch with reality and will have to crawl out of a deep hole later if it does not start treating people (including clients) much better now.

  • Food, glorious food.

    Re the previous post (11.19), I think you'll find CC actually does lovely biscuits for its internal meetings, which even appear to have been baked on the premises. And at Christmas they also do very tasty mince pies and yule logs. That' s better home cooking than I get at home!
