    Pros

    Flexi-time. Excellent appreciation of work-life balance. Cheap gym in the basement. Secure cycle parking facilities. Friendly atmosphere. Lots of development opportunities.

    Cons

    Instant pay rewards awarded inconsistently. No promotions (only applications for higher grade jobs). Extremely rigid performance review system; no scope for managers' discretion.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to evidence based advice instead of relying on ideology. Take more risks. Use less buzzwords and be more concise in communications with staff.
