      Pros

      - work-life balance: wellbeing days and birthday day off; 2/3 days in the office/remote - people are knowledgeable, friendly and sociable - inclusive culture, great social life

      Cons

      - constantly changing environment (restructures, relocation, management changes, different vision etc) therefore difficult to progress in your career as you are constantly adapting to changes/new management - no salary review when you absorb somebody else’s job

      Pros

      - Most of the people that work there are very nice and talented - Work-life balance is really good - Nice building

      Cons

      - Toxic environment, with name-calling, shouting at employees and gossip but luckily people that were enforcing this environment left - Not diverse, nor inclusive (depending on areas of the business) and actually full of cliques - No career progression opportunities, salary lower than elsewhere for similar roles

      Work/life balance and staff wellbeing is a priority. Very flexible working arrangements, and amazing culture of friendly and supportive people.

      Cons

      Headcount constraints are a real issue Lack of flexibility for salary negotiations are causing good people to leave Desperately poor pension scheme replaced a fair and pro-employee scheme that had previously been in operation

      Pros

      I think this is one of the best places to work in the UK. Amazing work/life balance, caring managers, friendly colleagues, people are efficient without being stressed, good compensation, exciting place to work in terms of what is produced and created.

      Cons

      Compensation could be better - and this is a minor gripe, but sometimes management could be more hands on.
