    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Massive budgets, huge desire to do things better and to show that they're ahead of the competition. Bonuses for top performers are great.

    Cons

    Everyone needs to sign-off the smallest detail so slow to adapt. Salary increases for internal moves tiny if at all. No recognition of external market rates. Bonus ratings fit forced distribution so more about who likes you than what you actually achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise that your best people aren't necessarily the loudest.


  2. "Good pay, no much deal flow, too political and no diversity"
