    Pros

    Its a great place to work, leading resources, free gym, everyone is very nice and chilled

    Senior Management don't really care about progressing you as such, and make no attempt to build relationships. Due to the terrible managing of staff, loads of great staff have left.

    Pros

    Great benefits, amazing teams of very bright and proactive people, a flexible place to work

    Cons

    Can be extremely bureaucratic at times, especially when senior management gets involved. People at the top also tend to make autonomous decisions when a better informed choice should be made by people with more experience in the specific area of concern
