Pros

- Fast paced environment means you can learn a lot quite quickly if you're willing! - Good additional benefits like tech scheme and chance to purchase holiday - Fun meeting rooms - Was such a great culture at the beginning, but now there's little internal communication and no feeling of team work, seems like everyone is in it for themselves

Cons

- Always changing/getting rid of senior management, normally means a company restructure happens where often the management left aren't aware of what workers responsibilities are (especially when the person whose been fired from senior management was the head of your department). - Pay reviews and promotions are non-existent and very secretive (even after title and responsibility changes which happen with no consultation), it's your responsibility to get paid the right amount rather than being promoted to a position because you've done such a good job so far. - Handle redundancies better! The company got rid of lots of 'doers' meaning everyone left had to pick up the slack. After everyone left redundancies were never to be heard of again (real lack of support!). Also consider the impact of bringing new people into the team who're on higher salaries and less experience than those you just got rid of, leaves people who went through it confused as to why it was needed in the first place - investment? - Too many systems with too little automation, makes day to day tasks for workers that shouldn't exist. - Practice what you preach - the company used to be customer focused but now with the shift in the market and additional competition it's profit focused.

Pros

The people you work with are the best asset and who will make you get out of bed.

Cons

Leadership believes that everyone can be replaced. Have been asking to be promoted for some time now, and there is no promotion in sight, no payrise.

Advice to Management

Invest in your people, they are what keeps the company going. Lots of the people I work with are stressed to the point of breaking down.
