    Good to have on your cv.
    Global point of view into the businesses.
    Permanent employees get ok benefits.
    Good physical conditions, nice food place etc.

    Cons

    Unfair promotions.
    It is important who you know not what you do.
    Too far to the city unless you are living in alderley edge
    Ongoing outsourcing.
    If you are not European, your chances to be promoted are very low.
    Too traditional.
    Not enough focus on product pipeline.
    Fixed terms are treated unfairly comparing they are doing the same job to permanents.

    Advice to Management

    Try cuting costs on senior management levels.
    Inefficient structures at some departments lead to idle employees.
    Dont only talk about diversity but also lead by example and promote real diversity.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    People are wonderful and egos are really checked at the door most of the days to get things done.

    Cons

    Not much of a future for the company in the next 5-7 years. All downside with CEO David Brennen being forced out in the next few months. If he wants to or not, he's out. This will change culture, direction, and the exit of talent.

    Advice to Management

    After years on the current strategy that clearly is not working, isn't time to admit it's not working, change and move forward. Global priories message was too funny, #1 sell drug. LOL. Too late. Its probably a violation of some code of conduct.
