      Pros

      Great pay, great benefits, lovely colleagues. I've been lucky to have really great line managers who have always respected my expertise.

      Cons

      After 17+ months of working remotely and delivering above and beyond on our patient commitments and internal goals, the senior leadership team is now forcing employees to return to the office 5 days a week. We didn't even go in that often prior to the pandemic. While the written guidance touts "flexibility," the guidance to line managers has been clear - 5 days a week, or there will be a problem.

      Pros

      My current team is very supporting and good. It always depends on the team un which we are allocated.

      Cons

      It's really not suited for freshers who wants to be as a software developer. If you want to be in support then it's well suited.
