    Pros

    Lots of fabulous professional people, interesting and challenging projects with a splash of fun and laughter thrown in. Excellent working conditions, parking and pay.

    Cons

    You can end up so engrossed in projects your hours can be long. Sometimes its hard to move jobs internally which is important if you want to grow and stay fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give positive feedback it goes along way and encourage those staff nights out, it's when good friendships and teams are formed.

    Pros

    The trainers do a good job and provide the level of support you would need in the role.

    Cons

    Shifts are ludicrous, managers don't provide correct support, not interested in maintaining employees, not paid or given back overtime after shift has ended, holiday system is a joke! Lack of proper organisation and planning skills. People only get better opportunities and progression if you suck up, not actually bothered about supporting and promoting those who do know their job inside out and are fully competent at doing the job. Company is highly promoting on basis of suck ups and a case of if their face fits, nothing to do with if they are able to do the job; which is generally not the case in the ones who get promoted! Overall a company to be avoided unless you like being treated like they own you and can do as they please!
    High turn over of staff due to all of the above and more! A company that's as bad as the coalition government!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to actually think about your employees and what's best for them, not what suits the big people at the top! Promote and support people properly.

    Pros

    Benefits are superb, they have them all. Time-off policies are great. Promotions are not bad.

    Cons

    They tend to get top heavy with leadership, and have many lay-offs to balance that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A cut back in leadership would be an improvement.
