    Pros

    Visibility of you to senior managers and of senior managers to you is unlike most companies of this size. The relatively flat structure enables this and the MD's / Presidents encourage collaboration and participation.
    If you are a self starter and are capable of 'getting involved' regardless of your level or experience, it's a great place to be.
    Flexible Benefits scheme and offering is about the standard.

    Cons

    Because there is so much happening you can get spread too thinly, but this is a driver for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your teams and communicating with them.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ultra Electronics (Greenford, England) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter for the role and they submitted my CV to a consultancy. I was then interviewed by telephone where the interviewer just went through my CV. I arrived at the site to have a face-to-face interview. I couldn't find a parking space and there were no visitors parking. One of the building contractors said I could use his space and I went into the building. The reception staff were extremely rude about me using his empty space and told me I had to move my car. When I asked where I could park they pointed vaguely. After looking around the estate I could not find a parking space so I phoned up the interviewer and told him that I was canceling.
