    Pros

    Interesting technology, nice location, nice views from the 18th floor.

    Cons

    salaries are far below market rate. management are 'good old boys' that have been working together for 10+ years. most non-management workers are treated as necessary evils. very poor communication skills between management and non-management. very poor benefits, cheaper to get them on your own. Culture is very tight-knit so you're either in or you're out. Management is not transparent, will only provide information to you they find necessary for your role and nothing else.

    Impossible to advance unless you're personally in with the management.

    Casual work environment leads to inappropriate behaviours that could potentially make sensitive women and minorities feel uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    re-evaluate how the UK side is functioning and adjust accordingly. the churn rate for employees is so high that (out of ten employees only half have been there more than two years) it's clear the management is doing something poorly if they cannot retain loyal staff.

    Pros

    I would say the pros are that they you have freedom in aspect of traveling through the city. As well as set your own schedule. Which allows you to go home early. They allow you to leave at 4pm on Friday unless you have scheduled appts.

    Cons

    The communication between management is horrid. The salary is sub par for the amount of hours you put in. Technically you get a lunch break but seems to be underlines you eat in the office. The benefits are overly priced.

    Pros

    Excellent technology products and very technically talented engineering team

    Cons

    Very poor management, with no impartial HR. Arrogant senior management with rug sweeping mentality to troublesome staff. Office culture is very political, a good person can look bad in this company and in a different company shine. The company is very family orientated, with too many sons/daughters working for Directors.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with problems properly without turning a blind eye to unprofessional 'favourites', listen to the advice of other c level management and stop believing you know everything.
