      Pros

      The people are wonderful, the pension is good. The benefits have improved

      Cons

      Pros

      Culture, ethos, CEO, colleagues, location.

      Cons

      Workload expectations are unrealistic and middle management are generally quite useless - lots of people only in senior positions due to length of service rather than ability to actually do the job well.
