    Pros

    Good Company values, some great people, they invest in their people's training and they have a good renumeration scheme.

    Cons

    Quality of management can be inconsistent, work life balance can also easily start to erode.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the performance management system working properly, should be a fantastic incentive for staff, it's not, it's a chore. Get rid of poor performers, no matter their seniority, quickly.
