      Pros

      Friendly environment. Stable development. Very stable . A lot of training available. Very stable career progression.

      Cons

      Non- competitive salaries, which means staff frequently move to competitors. They provide sick leave only at the minimum legal requirements which means if you get a heavy cold or are sick for only a few days you will see your salary deducted. In more serious circumstances that colleagues have only received the statutory pay, which is according to the governmental website: "You can get £99.35 per week Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) if you’re too ill to work. It’s paid by your employer for up to 28 weeks". Too many hours of work per month including every second Saturday and most bank holidays. Overtime never paid although frequently pushed to. Seriously, If I had no objections they'd be happy with me working 9:30 hours a day, every day, as long as their jobs is get done. In Conclusion, I think that if they had better salaries and more staff hired they'd be a better place to work.
