      Pros

      Seems to be a stable company with a decent financial outlook Nice office Nice salary Part of a wider group

      Cons

      A lot, mainly processes are all disjointed but the worst of all is the people. My direct manager had no management experience, and found it hard to manage workload. You are not treated like a human being. So glad I do not work here any more as I developed anxiety in my time there! No real support from the company
