    Pros

    Great leaders, freedom to set your own path, results-driven, genuine commitment to doing business ethically and responsibly, good focus on diversity, great flexible working practices, super place for working Mums (and Dads), international opportunities for high flyers, and a fun, collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is terrible - making improvements, but lack of innovation and connectivity on core infrastructure is frustrating. Formal learning opportunities not well publicised, but there if you go after them.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and be more visible... and in some cases, more authentic.

    Pros

    The culture at the UK HQ in Theale is friendly, fast-paced and fun. There is a big focus on performance, and a robust (if slightly complex) way of measuring it. Ad-hoc recognition and reward are regular occurances. There are some fantastic benefits, including what must be one of the last final salary pension schemes in the UK. They've had a big focus on flexible working in recent years which has paid off with quite dramatic results.

    Cons

    It's not a culture that will suit everyone. There is an extremely high quality bar, and the pace can be exhausting. The biggest and most pervasive problem is the IT infrastructure which is in major need of a revamp. It does the job, but it is disjointed and there is still a lot of things you would expect to be automated that are still done manually.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the IT systems - it'll save money and make everyone's lives easier in the long run!

    Pros

    A well run organization. Most people are passionate about the growth and success of the business. Great products and marketing that you can stand behind

    Cons

    Some of the managers are only there to get to their next promotion quickly. They have no experience with managing, or completing the job at which they are managing. They show little interest in innovation or questioning the average. They just take and give marching orders with no personal insight or accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your internal team. They want to work hard and grow the company. Promote from within. Listen to input and give reasons for and thoughtful suggestions for changes in business execution.

    Pros

    Great teammates, convenient location, good wage, three shifts to choose from. Started as three month full-time Summer temp so great pay checks over this period.

    Cons

    Industry is seasonal, few hours in winter since I was at bottom of seniority. Work is repetitive and gets boring. Positions being automated, reduced job security. Long wait to get Full-Time. No raise or cost of living adjustment, though wage is already good.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, don't automate away jobs. Leads to reduced quality. That's my main criticism ( Twentyword minimum).
