    Pros

    Early finish Friday, Bonus scheme, nice things for all when products are launched.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work when promotion is on offer there is always someones name on it and often you are excluded from applying, or going through the assessment centre. Woman out number men a recipe for disaster. A lot of conflict goes on within depts. Not what you know but who you know. The 30 something brigade is what they are focusing on and experienced people are being made redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those that are worthy and not because the management like them. Take you blinkers off and wake up to the real issues. You have last good managers and staff. The directors are a closed shop. They need to live in the real world and realise the amount of people who are being let down.

    Pros

    Hours. 4.00pm finish of Friday. Flexible hours. Gym. Private Healthcare etc.

    Cons

    Some are more equal than others. Promotion goes to the chosen one's even though they put you through an assessment centre for promotion. The results are never seen or published. Every promotion has someone's name on it. Hard work goes un- recognised. Good people are leaving and the unreliable remain. Individual Depts have major problems which have been mentioned many times of people's exit interviews but nothing is done.

    Advice to Management

    They lack real managers. People have been promoted due to length of service rather than leadership skills. Look at people who can really manage and not because they are liked by other mangers. Good managers have been moved to other areas of the business in lower ranked jobs, replaced by others who have no management skills. Directors are far removed from the real world.

    Pros

    The company Credo is a excellent set of values and objections by which to adhere to and aspire too. Premises has a indoor gym. Good life work balance.

    Cons

    The team I was assigned to had gone through a few changes. Previous contractors had walked out. No hand over or clear work instructions. Immature adu professional work environment

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for the teams and make inadequate managers accountability or replace them with managers who are capable. Stop teams becoming infantile. Ask why expirenced contractors walk without giving notice. Ask why agencies are beginning to notice the negative feedback being received from contractors. It's not them it must be you.
