Pros

They were very friendly and always made sure to remind me to submit my time sheets so that I was always paid on time, even during holiday periods. They were always available to answer questions, and always friendly. They made sure I was aware of all the benefits I was entitled to, even as a freelancer (holiday pay, tax benefits, etc).

Cons

They took a strangely long time to follow up my references and its sounded like they got someone very inexperienced to do it. They also sometimes forgot when I advised them in advance that I would be away (this was in part because they were so keen to make sure I submitted time sheets and got paid---if I didn't submit one, they got worried even if I told them I wouldn't be working!).

    Pros

    Great people, good clients, lots of opportunites if you wanted to put in the effort. A place where hard work reaps rewards

    Cons

    Middle management were sometimes poor at spotting problems with their junior managers. Performance would not always be well managed

    Advice to Management

    Make senior management more accountable for the performance of their middle managers to stop losing good people
