      Pros

      Still a few good people. One of every technology. Decent salary.

      Cons

      In technical areas at least the result of the poorly managed merger and a frankly hiedously handled series of reorganisations has left barely anything apart from a few small politically supported teams and groups of long term employees waiting for retirement, redunency or just trapped with no better place to go depending on location. Political fighting within the upper tiers of management seems to be subsiding down from Machiavellian levels to reveal that middle/lower management aren't really kept in the picture and hence aren't singing from the same hymm sheet at all. This has caused faults mostly along regional lines with each office trying to carve off roles and responsibilities from each other. In the meantime technical debt has accrued and obvious preferences or at least neglect in certain areas also risen, this seems to stem from difficult decisions being avoided whilst management felt at risk or were too busy just stabing each other in the back. Basically it's a bit of a disaster, as a coal face worker if your boss isn't politically supported or you're in a team that's been dispossessed of it's "turf" then you're toast. Expect no training nor permission to actually take ownership or decisions about anything, innovation is hence dead. Ultimately that boils up to perhaps 3 or 4 people who are allowed to direct things technologically.

      Pros

      Good people, friendly culture. a lot of talented people in some departments which you can learn a lot from. decent bonus but pay rise is minimal unless you get promoted (not so easy). free tea and coffee and beer on fridays.

      Cons

      A lot of complicated Values which change all the time, difficult for career development. Not the same company since the merger as there are to many middle managers.

      Good People,Dynamic and challenging market to work in which is also competitive. There are also opportunities to move around and positions within the organization

      Not the same workplace as it was a few years ago - it has become more corporate, less fun to work and purely focused on numbers. there is less attention on staff

      Pros

      Well organised with an interesting business model and they use some interesting technology. There are some good people to work with here and most of the management in technology came from a technical background which helps immensely.

      Cons

      It's a large organisation so there is bureaucracy. Getting some small things done especially to do with networking or hardware can take an insanely long time. They lack a real dev ops team.

      Pros

      Great business model, some interesting projects and really good people who know their stuff

      Cons

      Went through a period of chopping and changing - unfocussed management meant a lot of wasted work.
