    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Co-op full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - 1 Angel Square is a great, modern office to work in. - Great sense of purpose - the Co-op have the ability to make good things happen. - Profits aren’t returned to shareholders, they’re reinvested into the company. - Relaxed atmosphere. - As a manager there’s a lot of flexibility about how you deal with your staff. - One of the biggest financial turnout stories I’m aware of.

    Cons

    - It’s a really long-standing company so IT wise there is a lot of technical debt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep an eye on financials at all times, strong cost focus needed.
