    I worked at Capita full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    a decent employer with a large number of sites throughout the country and even a few abroad so there is ample scope for progression

    Cons

    a lot of staff so when it comes to the crunch, your just a number really and there is no loyalty on there side

    Advice to Management

    the company would do a lot better if they showed some loyalty back to their staff - many people are very loyal to the company but this is not recipricated.
