    If your face fits you do well, but most employees are unappreciated though...

    Pros

    An approachable Chief Executive, who has time for everyone and is always willing to listen. Decent, supportive employees, who care about each other and look out for each other. A good work-life balance, with annual generous holiday allowance and a 35 hour working week. A modern office, with good IT systems to support your day to day work. A generous pension scheme is offered.

    Cons

    It's very hard to progress within the company for most employees, whilst some do very well and have in some cases been fast tracked in to senior management (whilst in some cases this is deserved, an interview for other employees would at least be fair), the vast majority are left feeling under valued and frustrated, with no support offered to them to progress by senior management. Very little is done to invest in current employees, to help them progress to the next level of their career at Catalyst. Many existing employees have the skills and expertise to gain promotion, yet they are often over looked. New roles that are not offered to a select few within the company, are often outsourced to expensive contractors or through external recruitment. Money is often wasted on company wide training initiatives delivered by external companies, 'making it easy' being a recent example, which was subsequently forgotten about a few months later.
