      Pros

      Most of the team are pleasant and nice to work with, particularly in the technical teams.

      Cons

      Senior management don't seem to be able to think strategically and so try to overcompensate by overworking their teams. No understanding of technical details at the highest levels, leading to poorly defined tasks and totally unrealistic expectations and deadlines –this leads to long hours that "aren't expected" but are enforced by ridiculous work loads.
