      A once great company, now a victim of short term thinking

      Pros

      Good safe working environment and a sincere commitment to ethical working practices. Good terms and conditions. Training and developement is good.

      Cons

      The last ten years has seen a trend to shorter and shorter term thinking. The focus, these days, is on whether this week's plan will be achieved. Often arbitrary targets not related to the customer need. This increasingly prevents any focus on longer term planning in the factories. Sad to see.

      Pros

      good working environment, good "soft" benefits, flexible working etc

      Cons

      deflated salaries versus comparative organisations, easy to get lost in the homogenised workforce, adequacy is rewarded and minimal incentives exist to go beyond this.
