    I worked at The Challenge full-time

    Pros

    The work environment at The Challenge is one of the most supportive I have ever experienced. No scapegoating or blame-culture and a place that always strives to listen and improve when things go wrong.

    Cons

    The director team is quite dysfunctional, and certain directors don't listen to the subject matter experts within their directorates before making changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to subject matter experts.

    Pros

    - organisation that stays true to its important mission and vision - fantastic culture where empathy, respect and kindness towards work colleagues is encouraged and visable in every day operations in the work place. This feeds in to everything that is done and is communicated - everyone is welcome and the atmosphere is a positive one - good levels of responsibility - diversity in job roles/ability to try new things...

    Cons

    Very little to say on this.

    Advice to Management

    - Management from the very top communicates clearly and is transparent with employees - keep on doing this - it's unique and hard to find elsewhere!
