    Pros

    great company and strong brand, stands for something in a world that often doesn't, some really great people to work with and a nice work life balance. Has potential to do some groundbreaking stuff in the future, some great digital skills in house but hampered by poor decision making and an unwillingness to learn. A good company for wanting to progress and learn, its encouraged and pushed well.

    Cons

    Strategy isn't working, cost cuts where they are really needed don't materialise due to unionisation and a lack of will by the board to make significant changes
