    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...

    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!
