Cima Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) is a UK based professional body offering training and qualification in management accountancy and related subjects. It is focused on accountants working in industry, and provides ongoing support and training for members.
A former employee said this in a review: "CIMA is the worst company to work for, they don'y take care of their employees, do not offer benefits nor progression opportunities".
Support work (Former Employee) says"I wouldn't touch this company with barge pole, give false references out. Management ring you up when sick giving you grief. Rotas are really slow to be done. You ask for certain days to be off you don't get them. Training is really poor. False promises from day one. Directors interfer with day to day running when they haven't got a clue. Have cameras up to watch staff"
Marketing (Former Employee) says"Not a great place to work any more. Cons: no real career prospects unless you happen to be from the US"
Support Staff (Current Employee) says"Mediocrely ran, team leaders haven’t got a clue except for when they want to yell at staff members for petty things, constantly outside smoking & on their phones. Also the directors don’t get involved with the running of the home even though during the interview I was told they are actively involved. Cons: Too many to list"
Truck Driver/Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says"Working with cima was just a last option very messy job working with cima it's like you're working under the table ..............................."
Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) says"None do not wish to specify any further"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Avoid at all costs.Poor management who do not care about the staff that report into them."
Director of Nursing/ Assistant Administrator (Current Employee) says"Most office staff does not work . I am in the office most days by myself to do my job and others. The pay is fair but you work long hours and don't get much down time to even go to lunch most days. if you are salaried you work way more than 40 hours and no overtime is paid."
Profesor de Inglés (Former Employee) says"Ir de 10am-2pm ir a dar una clase o ir de maestro suplente y dar mi leccion en ingles del dia. Verbos,frases,vocabulario etc. Cons: No me daban mas horas para trabajar"
Qualified Management Accountant (Former Employee) says"Check your inbox for any urgent queries or work needing to be carried. Cons: I am leaving."
Spiritual Counselor (Former Employee) says"Very corporate minded focus. Local administrators and directors hold the interests of the company culture to heart, rather than considering the contribution of those working in the field. Clinical staff and other support disciplines have the best intentions, but in the end find too much strife and politics, and end up disheartened and leaving. No pay increases in over five years. Sad :("
ASESOR INMOBILIARIO (Former Employee) says"Manejo basto de clientes Cons: Economicamente mal"
LPN FIELD NURSE (Former Employee) says"Daily care for terminally ill patients in an in home setting as well as facility settings. Patient/family education provided on disease process and current palliative care given. Noted and began physician orders. Ordered and administered medications as prescribed. Proper wound care to patients as needed. Very fluent with HCHB computer program."
Purchasing Manager/ Packaging Supervisor (Current Employee) says"My time at Cima gave me the opportunity to hone a variety of valuable business skills. However, there no opportunity for advancement of professional position or salary once I attained my position. The ownerships had little or no regard for employees well being. Salaries were dismal and benefits were poor to non-existent. Vacation was nonexistent. The company was operating in ethical grey areas. Cons: lack of benefits, hourly time clock, no opportunity for advancement, bad ownership, poor benefits and growth for employee retention."
Gerente Administrativa (Former Employee) says"Empresa comprometida con sus clientes, excelente trato a proveedores y consideración en general Cons: Horarios"
Ejecutivo Comercial (Former Employee) says"Empresa estaba en el proceso estratégico de ser una empresa familiar a ser una corporación profesional. Esto generaba muchos conflictos en relación a la estructura orgánica y al clima interno."

Voluntaria en CIMA (Former Employee) says"Fue una experiencia estupenda en la que aprendí a tratar con niños pequeños."
Estudiante en prácticas (Former Employee) says"Apoyo a los investigadores del laboratorio: Cons: falta de financiación"
Asesor Educativo (Current Employee) says"La empresa brinda la facilidad de un incremento a los trabajadores en cuanto a las metas académicas, pues promueve una facilidad de horario para que el asesor continúe en sus estudios universitarios; esta facilidad se ve reflejada en la calidad de enseñanza, ya que los alumnos que ingresan en busca de asesorías salen con grandes expectativas para continuar sus estudios y llegar hasta el nivel superior de los mismos. Cons: la paga no es muy buena"
auxiliar de seguridad industrial (Former Employee) says"Mucha presión de trabajo"
Former Employee - Administrative Assistant says"I worked at CIMA full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Managers who have had no proper management training at all and are completely clueless Treat staff like dirt Bullying Backstabbing Favouritism Run by Americans, and all they think about is money, money, money, money, money...You are a commodity and nothing more. Nobody is valued This is the worst place I have ever heard of. I was overjoyed to get a job working somewhere like this but that very quickly turned to dust as I discovered why others were leaving in droves. This is the most miserable godforsaken hole I have ever had the misfortune to work in. If you value your sanity, do not work here. My tip for you. Read the reviews. They are all true"
Former Employee - Events Team says"I worked at CIMA full-time for less than a year Cons: - Favouritism in this place is evident - Politics in the company is very apparent and childish - Manager was very horrible and got a kick of how he treated me. Managed to get away with it through the fact that a similar situation had not occurred before. - HR is absolutely PANCE! The kind of place that covers up things rather than truly solve it. Very biased. - Managerial system is honestly a joke. Clear to see who is up each others backsides. - Pay is rubbish - Unprofessional manager but the company sided with him - Talk about values but staff members don't follow it - Discriminating jokes were made by my manager and he thought it was okay to say in the place of others but nothing came of it - They support who they like This office/company will not uphold its standard. Always talking about budgets, paying for the office will soon be a clear struggle."
Former Employee - General Manager says"I worked at CIMA full-time for more than a year Cons: Complete lack of UK understanding and overseas people operating things incorrectly. Overpaying people and underpaying external people and this is not acceptable. Lack of understanding government regulations as well as the final outcome. US rulings are not acceptable as it is back to front. They cannot organise anything correctly and that again is a complete disaster"
Current Employee - Customer Service Representative says"I have been working at CIMA full-time for more than a year Cons: Management, impersonal, lack of transparency."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at CIMA full-time for more than 3 years Cons: A despicable company. No loyalty to staff that have provided many years of service and made many sacrifices for the good of the company. Staff are treated with a total lack of respect by management and are not given the opportunity to contribute, lead or make a difference. Lies and deceit by management are commonplace. This has caused a great deal of unrest amongst the staff and many have left the company in recent months due to the frustrating work environment. Redundancies have also had an impact on staffing levels and moral is rock bottom. No one should have to work under these conditions. As others have commented, it is who you know that gets you ahead at this company. The idiots are truely running the asylum. I pity the poor souls who have to endure the ongoing tripe that is dished out of the U.S."
Former Employee - Associate Director says"I worked at CIMA full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Strategic focus misaligned, culture in flux and negative, management and competitive from US lens"

Former Employee - Manager says"I worked at CIMA full-time for more than 10 years Cons: The Americans taking over, and the subsequent brown nosing from CIMA staff who appear to be unashamed about the mess on their noses."
Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator says"I have been working at CIMA full-time for more than 3 years Cons: American led culture after takeover Drop in ethical values Bad staff moral Backstabbing environment Credit given to staff who don't deserve it No prospect of promotion if you socialise with the wrong crowd. All decisions for a British Chartered Institute made in USA! High turnover of staff Slashed budgets in the UK while usa staff get free trips Relocating resources abroad at the expense of UK jobs. Departments in complete disarray Every week a friend leaves. Renumeration is not competitive"
