Pros

Coming from the private sector I have found it to be a nice change of priorities. It is commercial, although not to the point that its employees suffer Whilst there are busy periods and deadlines

Cons

The importance for collaboration often means everyone wants to be involved and decisions take time to be made, even for small things. The collaboration also means there is no individual recognition

Advice to Management

Let go and trust your employees to make more decisions - this will empower your people and you'll get more out of them

    Interview

    Two rounds of interview. The first round is one a phone with the manager. The second round is an on-site interview. It lasts for about 1 hour. That's pretty much it.
