      Avoid at all costs if you have ambitions and care about your work-life balance

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Work is simple and not much is expected from you. - Job security. Once you get hired, it's a job for life if you want it to be. - Good pension contributions.

      Cons

      - Salaries are below industry average. - Haven't embraced remote working by default and even if completely unnecessary, they ask you to come in to the office at least 3 days a week. - Work can be boring sometimes. - Senior managers are among the most obtuse people I've ever had to deal with. - They don't care about the quality of the work as long as deadlines are met.

      Pros

      Ability to build up flexi-time

      Cons

      Seriously poor support from management. Little/no genuine career development opportunities (despite what they may say). Constantly having to message other departments for support to then be told to message yet another department. If you’re up for a stimulating career - please do not do this job
