    Pros

    Salary is good.I think that's it. Benefits are poor. 9 day fortnight is supposed to make your work/life balance perfect... But Managers expect you to work off Fridays.

    Cons

    Procedures driven. Managers are largely absent, but expectation that you will give your life to the company. Expected to arrive before 7am, and not leave until gone 7pm. Only expected to put 40 hours on timecard. All staff deemed Lazy and incompetent unless you are a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Talk to staff... Listen.

    Pros

    What can I say, I really cannot think of anything good to say about this company at all. It was conveniently located close to my home so I was able to walk to work

    Cons

    Absence of communication from senior management. Company has appointed US expats to senior management positions with no concept of UK employment legislation.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with employees.

    Pros

    - Very process driven organisation - but thats not a bad thing in this case
     - Fairly flat management structure
     - A high focus on technical competence on employees and delivering that to clients

    Cons

    - Limit to how far/quickly you can grow if you are not an engineer
     - You may be stuck with a duff project and not be able to move on until the project is over, or you leave the company

    Pros

    Just salary, they really pay good rate for staff and contractors

    Cons

    For money you are paid they expect you to be below low profile and never show your abilities, experience of ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Improve control for Section heads, check up on people's personal profiles, you will find something really new about what is going on inside of your departments.
