    I have been working at Octopus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rewards employee's efforts Social events are good - we have a great number of clubs at Octopus that bring people together with similar interests eg theatre club, gigs club, garden club, gaming club etc Offices are great Parental leave policy is good

    Cons

    Long working hours (45 working hours week) The need to provide feedback at everything is becoming excessive - people should be giving this when they find it would add value, it shouldn't be a weekly/monthly task otherwise the feedback will either become false or just a tickbox action - surely we want it to be developmental rather than not used in the correct context?! Ask opinions on this, a great number of people think the same! The company is very big and has separate business units - which makes it feel like you only below of a certain business unit rather than the company as a whole Some systems aren't great - accounts system is something from the 1980's and is extremely clunky. Appraisals need a revamp
