    Flexible and understanding employers, some job satisfaction, many like minded staff with good attitudes who have helped me become good at my job. Training delivered by experienced employees is excellent. Some overtime offered. Competitive salary in Wales. Good attitudes and help for those with underlying health conditions.

    Cons

    Recruitment and promotion can seem unfair, use of temporary duty allowance a lot, management can seem stuck in their ways. Poor visibility of senior management. Not enough learning and development delivered. More communication needed with more open discussion. Little seems to be done about poor performance.
