    Pros

    - Work, life balance generally good e.g. - teleworking.
    - Progressive and supportive company values
    - Fringe benefits. e.g. - discounted telecommunincations services

    Cons

    - Big company syndrome - too many approvals needed for simple tasks.
     - Disconnect between senior front line staff & senior management. Disconnect caused by 'obfuscating' middle management, smiling at those above while turmoil exists below.
     - Inadequate full disclosure whenever restructures occur.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line, band 2 staff, and team leaders more. Middle management (Band 1 & 2 people managers) too often disguise the full truth to senior management, masking the realities to achieve their short term KPI's.
