Pros

Very good and growing reputation within relevant industries. Mostly best in class. London office is genuinely superb. Great people. Totally stable and hugely profitable.

Cons

The Peter Principle is alive and well there. Incompetent, myopic, micromanaging, demotivating commercial management. No clear roadmap for personal and professional growth.

Advice to Management

Grow up and realise you're not amateurs. Management need to stop hiding behind processes and start earning their salary.
