    Pros

    Work/life balance and staff wellbeing is a priority. Very flexible working arrangements, and amazing culture of friendly and supportive people.

    Progression is slow and not a clear professional development path. Could be more challenging and fast-paced. Low salary.

    Pros

    I think this is one of the best places to work in the UK. Amazing work/life balance, caring managers, friendly colleagues, people are efficient without being stressed, good compensation, exciting place to work in terms of what is produced and created.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better - and this is a minor gripe, but sometimes management could be more hands on.
