    Pros

    A good brand for your CV. Interesting company and many loyal employees, although nowhere near as many as there used to be. Good travel benefits.

    Cons

    Over the last few years the company has gone into meltdown. Since the snow delay debacle and the threat of competition the company has panicked. Lots of cuts, a catastrophic outsourcing of IT to India has left the company on it's knees with a very dissatisfied workforce. There are so many middle managers managing 'partners' it's become a joke. The public facing staff often face a very challenging job when there are delays with hardly any backup from their managers.

    Very few little chance of career progression. It's a case of favours for friends - or so it seems anyway.

    Depending on the department you are joining think carefully!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the morale issues! Keep hold of your more experienced staff - you've lost too many already.
