    Pros

    For families, they offer generous and flexible working practices, although this can be at the detriment of actual performance for teams when half the company work part time or leave early to pick up kids. Good holiday, flexitime & short working hours are good if you value your personal life above professional.

    Cons

    As the 'pros' suggests, for employees that wish to get on, it can be frustrating, and there's not an ethos of getting the best people, top employees are not treated any different to lacklustre employees, so there's no motivation to push yourself. Seems more money is spent on reorganisation than retaining the staff that make the difference. Current management thinking is better to get cheaper labour in India, regardless of productivity. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mixed messages destroy morale, on one hand is profits are up, we're successful for shareholders etc, on the other expenses removed, no pay rises, budgets cut and outsourcing staff to India. Whilst most people are happy to chip in whe times are bad, it's a cheek to take advantage, and goodwill among employees is rapidly diminishing at and exponential rate.
