    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people in the most part, good development opportunities if you are prepared to do the hard graft

    Focus on the culture and the people and the growth and reputation will naturally follow

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Desire from the top to be a good employer. Good access to training.

    Cons

    To many people seem to be working on projects and not doing their day jobs. Management always "on calls" with the US. Unofficial flexi hours being abused by people whos managers who have no control over their teams, so they come in late, lunch at their desk and go early and this seems to be ok for some, but no one seems to care, off putting when you work hard, seemingly for nothing extra. Either give us flexi hours or don't.

    Advice to Management

    Stop locking yourself in an office being "on calls" many of which you don't need to be on. Gain some people skills. Tackle problem employees as there seems to no appetite from either you or HR to do so.

    Some great people who will go the extra mile to help and support you. In some instances even when when it should be HR and Management.

    Cons

    Job for the boys! Former military do not always make a successful company it takes work from industry related experience. Leadership team who are thinking only of themselves and not the company values/ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the old school military management who would never survive in a true corporate environment. Bring in New blood who understand business and value their staff.
