How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.
Depends on business area. Some areas, it's rarely possible to speak to your director. Other areas, you can speak openly to your Group Manager. It's challenging to get meaningful performance feedback, possible because of fear over saying something too critical.

It is easy to talk to your direct supervisor but branch manager level & above are pretty hard to reach as they have really busy time schedule. But if you do need to talk about something, you still can make appointment with them.

Open door policy (most of the time), and there are even times booked into calendar each week where you can talk to senior management about anything you want to discuss.

I think it varies in teams. For example I was initially in a huge Branch and felt quite removed from management. Now I am in a small branch and management are much more present and appear to be good mentors.
