Pros

Some very talented technical professionals to work with. Lots of different projects to work on and the technology available is leading edge.

Cons

Lack of any standards on the technical and human side. No methodology to follow so everyone is just trying hard without knowing what to do to improve. No improvement plan to learn from mistakes or accountability. A very hostile environment where everyone is scared to reach beyond the very minimum at the risk of being chastised. Those in charge fill their needs by avoiding issues or denigrating those below them.

Advice to Management

Everyone in a position of management is scared of being discovered that they don't know what they are doing. Stop looking over your shoulder and hire the most competent people you can and give them tools to succeed.

    Pros

    -dynamic, lots of intitiatives, strong brand

    Cons

    -constant restructures (often once a year now), where you have to reapply for your own job or another in the org
    -fairly minimal opportunity for growth. most people could be there for 10 years an not move up a grade
    -quite penny pinching in benefits: eroding them slightly each year, whilst inflation is going up all the time

    Advice to Management

    people want to grow and develop and not just stay at the same level year after year, and have to reapply for their own job year after year. with constant restructuring of what's just been restructured. and stop reducing the benefits in real terms from year to year (!)
