Pros

Chance to work in a truly diversified working environment, good support provided by the managers. Learning is encouraged. Opportunities to interact with some of the brightest people in the industry.

Cons

Lack of direction at the moment, lack of transparency to junior staff. Long working hours are expected and a norm, depending on the team you are in.

    Pros

    Great pension and flexible benefits (sickness, holiday especially at 30 days). Buildings are light and modern. Well defined lines of responsibility.

    Cons

    Too much red tape. Too many people who think their role is to preserve the status quo. Too much focus on immediate results to the detriment of any future planning.

    Advice to Management

    Create a strategy for how technology fits within the business and deliver it.
