    Pros

    Nice offices.
    Good discount on product.

    Cons

    Leadership is disastrous. There are too many ‘accidental’ managers.
    Pay is low.
    Nothing can be changed. It’s accepted that projects can’t / won’t be delivered.
    Lack of basic competency in most areas. There are high barriers to entry for their market, but it’s difficult to see carnival at the top in 10-20 years.

    Pros

    A large growing organisation that offer good opportunities for progress at the lower and mid career levels, if you can find the right role to display your abilities.

    Slow to change and quite risk adverse.
    Inflated expectations from senior management. Investment in employees can be hit and miss

    Ensure that management expectations are achievable. Look at why there's been high staff turnover in some areas and address the root causes.
