Pros

Money is better than rival companies. Although recently due to the competition paying much less they've dropped their rates so not as good as before.

Cons

It's not what you know, it's who you know. Advancing up the ladder requires a level of skill in being seen as a sap and making friends with them too. If you don't get on with everyone higher up or aren't as moronic then you'll be stabbed in the back.

Advice to Management

Stop promoting friends and family, promote based on skill and business power, rather than personal relationships. Even if you don't get on with someone, they're a lot more beneficial than promoting a friend who you've to defend, to everyone, all the time, and eventually gets put back down.....just for example. ;)

    Pros

    Was a good place to work...
    Had smart people and was fun.
    The bonus plan at first actually looked excellent..

    Cons

    No career prospects.
    No clear direction, it changes every couple of months.
    People spend all their time covering their own backs and not working as a team. It is all down to me me me..
    Management have let too many good people leave because of workload, poor renumeration (the 2010 pay review was a net pay cut), Bonus plan that is designed to actually never pay out, it pays yearly (who does that, seriously).
    They never fire incompetent staff, they promote them to manager and they do more harm there.
    There will unlikely be a 2011 bonus, just like there was non in 2010.. Other than the IPO bonus paid to Execs, the rank and file got nothing...
    The 'share saving plan' if you got it in the last 3 years forget your shares making you money that share price is on it's way to 4 pounds a share when your quoted 8.
    The management in public are all 'ethical' but behind those board room doors they are deceitful and go back on everything the preach..

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be fired if their teams start leaving because of their managers poor management skills.
    Fix the bonus to make it an incentive, pay the thing quarterly based on the last quarters performance
