    Pros

    Some of the most interesting projects going. There is a really good work / life balance with flexible working. There are also some truly great people who work here.

    Cons

    Traditionally more difficult to progress career as far / quickly on the 'technical' route rather than moving into Project / middle management. Things changing on this front but some junior members of staff still struggle to progress. Too much ineffective middle management not adding value.
