      Pros

      A few perks Some great members of teams I’ve worked in Cool office Hopefully restructure helps reduce red tape Working from home shift

      Cons

      HR - seems their processes are old fashioned, toxic culture on discussing salaries Salaries are not competitive High turnover No one really knows what they’re doing Bad communication Feels like there’s a hierarchy starting with the new CEO Not much for progression

      Pros

      Pro’s? Haha don’t make me laugh.

      Cons

      Only care about making profit and not the people who are dealing with their customers. Mental health means nothing when you’re not hitting your targets.

      Pros

      They have some talented and good people left who work within the company. If you are lucky and work within the right team, you are truly valued. The company do provide a half decent benefits package (outside of salary). Nice office.

      Cons

      Poor salary offering in comparison to the market. Unclear and inconsistent messaging from the Exec leadership team. Resource cuts being made in all of the wrong places Too much red tape. Losing the 'BGL family' appeal which once made the company so attractive.
