    Pros

    HR policies are very supportive
    people are great
    the job is rewarding

    Cons

    there's too much change happening too regularly. not enough is done to retain staff beyond 12 months

    Advice to Management

    try and limit the amount of change being put in
    systems are so temperamental and need fixing as it's just so frustrating to wait for them to load
