      Pros

      Free products and discount is amazing and their group life works.

      Cons

      Work hard for small money if middle management HR won't help you with issues that don't protect them, so won't protect staff (no personal issues just what I have seen) Upper management always an issue people trying to get other people fired over wanting thier job or favouritism.

      Good product discount and nice office in Fitzrovia. Job looks good on CV but they pay below market rate.

      Unsupportive managers and constant corporate restructure means that if you are the unlucky ones, they will ignore your progression even if you have performed above and beyond.
