    Pros

    Free food, great office, genuinely open culture, opportunities for progression, access to senior managers, good salary for what you do

    Entry level work can be mind -numbing, managers know what you are doing every minute of your day, long contracted hours

    Advice to Management

    Don’t market the role as analysis when it’s data entry. Not all teams are the same (I was lucky to be in a team with good tech) but some teams it is manual work all day

    Pros

    Take care of their staff well. Many opportunities to switch careers and work in different divisions. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of mobility for seniority unless you want to be in management. Salespeople have the same role at age of 50 and 20 .

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities to be a specialist in something, not just to be a senior manager. Some people do not want to be a manager but have excellent specialist skills or are natural salespeople.
