    I have been working at Capita

    Pros

    Very little office politics
    Reward based solidly on performance not brown nosing
    No old boys network, old school tie etc
    Varied and stimulating work

    Cons

    Old fashioned, low quality office environment with frequent maintenance problems
    Very sales focused culture which has its good points but also some downsides (lack of intellectual capital)
    Lowish salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone needs to be a flashy, second hand car salesman - we need those quieter types with thorough market knowledge too.
