Pros

Great atmosphere, strong ethical values, high rewards for success, consultancy environment gives a variety of opportunities to learn and develop

Cons

Lack of strong central support functions sometimes lets the business down, braver investment would sometimes be of benefit.

Keep focussing on the right balance between centralisation and delegation, and between systems and people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of your staff are miserable and looking for positions elsewhere. Oxford and Abingdon are possibly the most life draining offices I have ever set foot in. I was totally screwed over whilst I worked there and for the life of me I don't know why I never took my complaints further. HR were a disgrace in helping resolve my issues.
