    Pros

    Looks good on the CV and some great colleagues. Percentage of loathsome and offensive people is relatively low (but like all companies there are a few). The brand is relatively well regarded which opens doors to the vendor community.

    Cons

    Management thinks it is really great when in reality, they are the core of the problems and lack of growth. To get on, it's all about how you fit into the "Cambridge Clique" - there is no real career progression for anyone other than juniors who are woefully underpaid. Over time, I managed to evolve my role, but ultimately management tend to try and keep you in a box rather than fast track your career.
    As regards the processes and practices of the firm - they are still firmly rooted in the past with abysmal internal systems. A real case of "cobblers children". Too often the "how things get done around here" is something you have to put up with.

    Advice to Management

    Stop preaching to employees and engage them - tell sell doesn't work. Stop spending money on buying your own shares back to puff up the the short term share price and focus on developing your business instead (gives better long term results and more sustainable).
