    I worked at Ridgian full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice Offices
    Generally Relaxed working atmosphere
    Good middle management
    Pay in line with market rates
    Breakfast on a Friday morning
    Always good staff nights out

    Cons

    Very dashboard driven
    Lack of promotion opportunities
    Innovation stifled at times by management team
    Odd Annual Review process
    Technology not always kept up-to-date

    Advice to Management

    A re-org at the top level needs to happen as innovation from the internal teams who actually speak to customers are generally ignored. Need to focus on customer driven innovation not out of "what looks pretty" and who is favourite in the office at the time
