    Poorly run, badly managed, total mess

    Pros

    Near the M50 if you're coming from south side, some local parking (more on that later) and there's a canteen on site for those without a packed lunch.

    Cons

    The rot had firmly set in by the time I fled to greener better-paying pastures. The culture, while supposedly focussing on safety, neglects any sort of job safety of mental health awareness. I've heard from people who had been on medical leave called up and instructed to come into work! The politicking and poor pay has left a shell of a company, with customers and employees leaving in droves, meanwhile certain managers get promoted beyond any sort of obvious prior positive impact on customer numbers. Consultants are deeply embedded in the organisation - at each level, with lower-level technical roles costing the company 100k+ per year, while the full-time staff make around a third of that. If you're working here, there's a better than even chance that you're being paid half the market rate for what you do, in a toxic environment, with woeful facilities and morale.

    A lesson in managerial incompetence

    Pros

    There is a severe focus on employee and contractor safety in the company, with some over the top training in safety and regulations in the office.

    Cons

    There are so many things wrong with this company, at a fundamental level. Morale is through the floor and both employees and customers are leaving in droves. The solutions typically applied are moving around various teams in the organisation but never addressing any key issues. Pay is below the levels you will get anywhere else and the main management functions are filled with bullying loud mouths and empty heads. Endless meetings preoccupy management, with conflicting orders broadcast to the minions to inform them of the latest notions and buzzwords. Facilities and compliance are the rudest people you will ever encounter in a professional setting. The hierarchy is riddled with consultants, whose only object is to draw out and complicate projects thereby getting their companies a bigger slice of the pie. Years ago the company decided to outsource the IT functions and basically handed the keys to the kingdom to a number of these consulting companies who charge six figure sums to place basic graduates in to do a role, which because of "headcount restrictions" they won't hire directly for half the price. A sinking ship, avoid.
