    Pros

    Can wear flip flops to work. Location is OK in central Stamford.

    Cons

    - Poor senior management quality
    - You have to be married to somone senior or seeing them in order to progress
    - Pay is very low
    - Staff are not treated well
    - Expected to put in long hours with no thanks or thought.
    - This is a UK based company so it is run along the British hierachial system
    - Work life balance can be poor since you spend a lot of time away from home
    - High staff turnover

    Advice to Management

    We're lions led by donkeys. Stop thinking of your own selfish profit motives and give hard working staff some respect

    Pros

    You can wear flip-flops to work - hard working colleagues who stick together.

    Cons

    Incompetent Senior Management. Low Pay. High Staff Turnover. Little opportunity for progression. Have to pay for training yourself. Poor benefits (particulalry maternity pay since most of the workforce are women.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear strategy. Stop changing your mind. Avoid management buzzwords and phrases that you picked up from a management manual because it makes you sound like David Brent (and it's a company in Slough).
