    Pros

    You are given a good level of engagement with your stakeholders which supports your development. The expectations are high although you are given the opportunity to be involved in areas of the business which relate to your role. You can therefore help shape the business mid to long term

    Cons

    Unions have a very strong influence across the business; changes can be prolonged due to the involvement
    A lot of legacy still within the business which does not support change easily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance Management of yourself is as key as it is for your people
