    Pros

    Good package and salary.

    Cons

    In the UK it’s led by a culture of fear of loosing your job (stated to make you perform better). Senior management don’t enagage and no regocnition if your not in the Bovis old boys club.

    Really need to get to grips with what motivates your employees. It’s not the occasional free drinks in head office.

    Be consistent be accountable make decision and stand by it. No point of having layers of management where no one is giving a firm decision.
