    Pros

    Lots of independence in role. Lots of interesting deals. Lower level management is generally good.

    Cons

    Exec do not see any value in giving pay rises - so what you start on is where you stay. Demotivating. detached Exec level of management. Group HR are arrogant and at odds with their own employee base.

    Advice to Management

    Reward IS important. Pay rises to cover inflation would be idea minimum. Targets go up and up yet pay goes down in real terms.

  8. Nice company with a lot of opportunities
