    Pros

    Fantastic pension, some great colleagues and excellent communication from the company. Social side is great and respected by the firm.

    Cons

    Far too many reorgs. Senior management often lacking in original thought. Latest reorg has created a silo'd environment and will have to be resolved by yet another reorg in a couple of quarters.

    Advice to Management

    Stop carrying our reorgs, they destroy morale and create a more confused, process driven business.

    Pros

    Working with like minded, engaged people who believe in the direction and strategy Colt now has in place. As a business they are investing heavily in their infrastructure but are mindful that without good people, the network wont function. Powerful culture change in progress which is making room for the people who want to be there and who want to excel.

    Cons

    At times the changes that occur feel pretty cut throat and are still happening more than would be expected.

    Advice to Management

    I think the company is craving a period of stability
