      Pros

      Love the company and values, great brand, great leadership, no micromanagement, lots of shadowing opportunities, training etc you just have to go for it. They’re putting people first and it makes a difference.

      Cons

      Lots of admin, not a single system/software instal was successful. Dual keying info, relying on emails and who knows who. DECISIONS TAKE FOREVER. Everyone’s afraid to have a final say, seems like roles and responsibilities only apply for junior staff. Decision making is slow and painful. not enough alignment between different areas within the business. PAY. Obviously low in comparison to other market players.
