    Pros

    Great benefits scheme, as this is imposted by the parent company

    Cons

    Wrong tools, wrong ideas, bullying / complaisant management. I did here of an internal promotion once, but have heard of alien abductions several times so you be the judge.
    Several managers could compete at Olympic standard for buck passing, and I suspect they sometimes forgot they had an IT department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, learn and innovate, not bully, blame and fear.

    Pros

    People are great from senior management to Account Executives. Company gives out praise for a good job often and very sincerely. Staff enjoy a good work/life balance as well as twenty five days holiday on day one. Also, time off for legitimate personal reasons is given by senior management. Office environment while visually not too stimulating, is made up for by the great energy and relationships that exist between employees of all levels. A true open door policy makes it easy to meet with senior management without making an appointment three weeks in advance.

    Cons

    Small company issues. Cash flow, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and sell/promote/market the company more vigorously.
