    Pros

    Pay and benefits good, flexible working in some roles

    Used to be a great place to work however over the last 5 yrs has been a downward spiral of cost cutting, constant reorganisation, politics and poor strategy. This environment has led to people being treated as numbers on a balance sheet and behaving accordingly.
