  • Work Life Balance is great, its really a great place to work (in 97 reviews)

  • Flexible working hours for office staff (everyone but the shop floor shift workers) to total 38 hours a week (in 34 reviews)

Cons
  • Work/Life balance was a joke as I was on travel for as much as 8 months at a time with only a few trips allowed back home (in 15 reviews)

  • Hidebound in some of its processes; some senior management slightly too in thrall to external consultants (in 23 reviews)
