    Pros

    The scheduling and overtime was great, the breaks in between work was great, the benefits were also very favorable over other companies.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to update hardware in many of the departments, Supervisors need to be more relatable to the employees they over see. Needs to hire people that are serious instead of just chasing a dollar.

    Pros

    Great People. HR are good in the sense they really encourage feedback about the company. I have never woken up and not wanted to come to work. I feel supported by my direct manager and senior management are also very approachable

    Cons

    There have been lots of changes in the department, which I feel have stalled my progress. They're aren't enough opportunities for progression or career development-but this is symptomatic of a lot of large companies.
    There is a lot of room for improvement for communication between senior management and the team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication and look for the talent within the team, before looking externally.
    We're in need of motivation

    Old tech, reliant on contractors, very political, backstabbing and agendas - like working in a soap opera!

    Pros

    Global company, can move within Organization, decent large company benefits most offices centrally located and easy to get to across Europe at least, Hanger Lane is horrible.

    Cons

    funding always geared to next project or contract at expense of current clients. VERY political at all levels more than anywhere I have worked before. Public sector "job for life" mentality lots of staff just moved around the building or company. developers, managers are strained trying to meet demands with thinner resources as attentions on next best thing. 'watch your back ' best advice to anyone thinking of working here as it brings out the worst in people in subtle ways. Every week is a new people drama somewhere in the building / dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stronger HR willing to get rid of under performers and work with managers, listen to managers and senior developers re. funds and resources. look at your own HR which has high turnover - do they know something we don't?
