    Pros

    Good benefits and external sponsors.

    Cons

    Very bad working environment and management in the NPU-UK. Gossip, rumours, lies, backstabbing, mediocrity. Management only interested in profit above anything else. High turnover of employees. The values claimed buy the company are nonexistent. Can't comment on CEO or other branches.

    Advice to Management

    Please change bussiness.
