    Pros

    Good Company values, some great people, they invest in their people's training and they have a good renumeration scheme.

    Cons

    Quality of management can be inconsistent, work life balance can also easily start to erode.

    Advice to Management

    Get the performance management system working properly, should be a fantastic incentive for staff, it's not, it's a chore. Get rid of poor performers, no matter their seniority, quickly.

    Pros

    Relatively good benefits including pension and Share options.

    Cons

    Highly sexist and very hierarchical organization that does not support employee development or growth. Promotions will likely need to be sought outside the company. Culture of blame, and lack of accountability on the part of Directors.

    Advice to Management

    More focus needs to be put on having senior executives engage with staff, to increase employee morale, and offer more opportunity for 360 degree feedback to hold managers accountable.
