    Pros

    Wonderful company with a close knit community of employees all working towards a similar goal of delivering a product on time. Each member of the staff knew there responsibilities and understood what made the company tick.

    Cons

    Pace was always quickened due to time sensitive objectives. Working till the job was completed was always something we had to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to set beforehand a working timeframe when starting a workweek. Once this is established it will beenefit the company.

    Pros

    Good prospects - good markets and nice environment. Good work-life balance and great people to work with. Compensation is very good, above market average.

    Cons

    Too many re-organisations and every year there is a squeeze on spending hiring etc to make the numbers, Very short term thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you get the long term career progression right. You are loosing too many really good people along the way.

    Pros

    The best reason has to be the cafe experience; you can have really relaxing coffee/tea breaks here and de-stress.
    secondly, the work culture is pretty decent.

    Cons

    they can do better by ensuring that all departments coalesce for activities and support each other.

    Advice to Management

    They need to take greater interest in what's happening at the lower levels.
