Pros

A very driven organisation. A huge variety of roles and positions throughout the organisation, with highly talented and very intelligent workforce.

Final salary scheme pension, and very good facilities.

Cons

Conflicting directions of various departments and internal politics lead to contradictory messages internally. The organisation as a whole appears unfocussed and lacking in a clear, uniform direction (though this could also be a benefit as well!).

No ability for employees to provide formal (or anonymous) feedback on their managers during personal development sessions.

Advice to Management

Provide better mechanisms for your employees to provide feedback on their managers. The current system doesn't work! Better communication between departments is vital.
