      Pros

      I've worked at Channel 4 for many years and to receive a note from your CEO praising you for your continued work and engagement and for your service was just a really nice touch. It doesn't take a lot for these things to happen but it meant a lot and I really appreciated it.

      Cons

      Nothing, my overall package is good, my engagement with my senior managers are good, great opportunity to own projects and to manage my own development.
