    Pros

    Very inclusive. Fast paced and collaborative working. Good progression opportunities mean that people get to take on early responsibility and really shine in their roles. Strong senior leadership, especially within the NCS department. Good values which are well embedded into the company.

    Cons

    Facilities are poor. Highly reliant on one source of funding (the NCS programme) so there is a concern that if the landscape changes, the charity could face challenging times. Middle management is bloated and sometimes inefficient.
