    I worked at FirstGroup full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and mission driven to do the right things for the benefit of the community. Talented people who largely work well collaboratively.

    Cons

    Technologically challenged: the IT systems are old and difficult; much of the IT support is outsourced; difficult to determine ownership to make improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Seed the organization with entry level new hires with college degrees who will question the status quo and push change throughout the organization.
