    Pros

    Diverse workforce and huge array of clients to work and gain experience with. Good way to build up your transcript / résumé. I find a lot of the senior staff are very good, mid management lets the group down.

    Cons

    Many leavers in 18 months, many unhappy people talking about their unhappiness in the office. PB will do surveys, listen to staff, but when it comes to action, in my experience, they are not interested. I had my RYP recently, basically outlining where i wanted to be in the company and was told to fill my RYP with what PB wanted rather than what i wanted to do. Told various other workers, no one surprised. I work in a section comprising of 5 people. Been told that we cant afford and wont be getting another field /lab / junior person, but our group of 5 consists of 2 managers. Go figure.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice, nothing would change.
