    Pros

    Reputable organisation, where senior management appear to be making an effort at making this a good place to work

    Cons

    No Career progression. New joiners start on much higher salaries than those who have been doing the job well for several years. No development opportunities

    Employ managers who actually know what they are doing and manage staff fairly and actually promote the brand values
