    Stick to your decision, don't keep changing direction and don't ignore bullies.

    Pros

    It looks good on your CV

    Cons

    People are unwilling to take ownership of tasks. The company is so large with a constant turnover of staff/redundancies. You feel like a small cog most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the longer term plan and not just the short term profits to impress the CEO.

    Outsourcing when most of the UK is trying to do the opposite
    Don't follow through with their promises
    Change their mind about direction every year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job. Pick a direction for IT and become excellent at it.

    Pros

    Very supporting of family/work balance
    Friendly culture
    Nice environment
    Good benefits package
    Modern IT when it comes to front line operations

    Cons

    The business went through a lot of restructuring and has fired a lot of people. This is causing a lot of resentment around the business. Investment/change budget is slashed dramatically so it feels like nothing is moving, but the business is slowly springing back to life!

    Advice to Management

    Manage transformation better and be clear/open about the future growth strategy
