      27 Apr 2021 - Project Manager

      Pros

      Care about staff but somewhat superficially Smart people and innovative ideas

      Cons

      If they have a problem they create a director post, far too many directors. Lack of transparency in recruitment especially at director level. Flit from fad to fad with no real tangible outcomes, one day it is systems thinking, then the top guy goes and we have design thinking and multiple strategy teams doing a lot of thinking and not really delivering much. Real lack of diversity.

      Pros

      Flexitime! It's not just a 9-5 job. Very suitable if you juggle other things in life (e.g, childcare commitments if you're a parent). Work-life balance is very good.

      Cons

      None I can see yet.
