    Pros

    Good flexible working policies, friendly people to work with, excellent management development programme that is in high demand amongst staff, and is in the process of developing a really good coaching and staff management strategy.

    Cons

    Lacks communication at all levels of the organisation, change management is chaotic, systems are non-existent, and it is going through GBP 64+ million that will see several hundreds of redundancies in the coming 2 years. It's PR is based on firefighting rather than being proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Plan your change management, don't just restructure it on the hoof. Project plan the details of the change and then select key people from around the organisation to drive them forward. If you believe in the coaching style of management, and releasing potential, let the more junior managers make the changes that are needed.
