      Pros

      Family feel, professional but not overly corporate, employees valued and treated as individuals, great on the job learning with opportunities to be involved in broad range of projects and initiatives.

      Cons

      limited internal development opportunity due to lack of roles, sometimes feels there were not enough bodies to do the work.

Generally good people. Family orientated. Good 'We Care' corporate theme (charity and internal support)

      Cons

      BMS takeover! We had a great pipeline. Lucky BMS! Poor HR representation - there but not there after former lead left to work in Europe. Base pay becoming less competitive - review this!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible hour & holiday pay.

      Cons

      Poor work-life balance. Even on a holiday work phone is ringing & expect to answering emails too. No career progression. Can dedicate many year & performing same still? Poor management. Appraisal target is a too easy, why no challenge? Is it leading to a low job satisfaction. No support in crisis times, when a thing goes wrong It is no effective team playing if not everyone is helping. It is not a place it once was, too high turnover.
