    Pros

    Everyone who works here is very bright and driven so you never need to carry anyone - they'd get fired long before that
    Career progression - you can move around easily and change job functions which offers a lot of opportunity
    Customer focus - they genuinely put the customer first which is rare for a company this size

    Cons

    Culture is very stressful - most people work evenings and weekend. There's no work-life balance, even at the more junior levels.
    Management are poorly trained and over-stretched.
    Tools are clunky and frustrating - they don't have dedicated analysts so you have to pull your own data from multiple sources.
    Too much admin at all levels - even MBAs and past consultants are given crap tasks to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time reshaping the company into what it should be 15 years down the line. Currently it's still working as a start up with dodgy hacks and patches, no policy and little structure. This can't be sustained.
