    Pros

    Lots of great colleagues
    Good work life balance
    I was able to progress in spite of the organisational barriers to progression

    Cons

    Poor leadership focus. Some looking at pie in the sky ideas and others more interested in playing politics to serve their own self interest. While looking to become a more diverse organisation, there are lots of homogenous teams of either strong men, or strong women.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the bs, stop making excuses for poor staff feedback scores and focus on removing waste in processes. Get that right, then the customers will trust you again.
