Good values, good people. Innovation is not just a slogan.
Coding standards vary between teams dramatically.
Very high demands. Management became posh and pompous. Demands are high, but benefits don't match.
Lots of people from Mercury came in to manage. People got higher in rank due to personal relationships (friends from previous workplace).
No investment/ lacking investment in future development of staff. No courses. Nothing organized for the people.

Advice to Management
The most important asset is your people: invest in them and they will pay you back with good work.
Remember that employees also have kids and family, and don't expect them to lots of extra as standard. If employee is doing his job, but isn't doing extras, it's an OK employee, and not a bad one.
IDP is a good slogan, but yourselves need to also care for the people. It's not only their responsibility. Do active stuff on your own.
