    Pros

    Autonomy, Remote working, Client Driven, Account Driven

    Cons

    No professional growth progression. You're tasked to a client from anywhere up to a few weeks to a few years at one particular client. I only stepped into the office twice in my 5+ years of working with them -- once when they interviewed me, and once to sign on. Definitely a hardware telecomms shop that once tried to branch out into the custom software and services world but failed due to management and domain knowledge. They ended up acquiring other companies which succeeded in this market, but those single-site companies had no idea on how to work when resources are distributed globally.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing more on your resource's need to prevent turn over and stagnation. Top resources will want continual career growth.

    Pros

    If you like to try different jobs, there are many opportunities to work in different roles as long as you are ok with always moving laterally.

    Cons

    Very little career progression, especially if you are not based in the UK. Irrational revenue targets have resulted in poor bonuses the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Look around and see how low the morale is. The cost cutting, unreasonable targets, and reduction in benefits (at least in the US) is driving the good people to seek opportunity elsewhere.
