      Pros

      Flexible working arrangements, autonomy, regular 1:2:1's with manager, some good benefits in you're into those.

      Cons

      Not a lot of opportunity for career progression within the team I was in, however that may have been down to an imminent take-over.

      Good office location and flexible working

      Pros

      - Many kong standing employees that are happy to offer advice and mentorship - reasonable level of opportunity for advancement - Some flexible working and autonomy in role - regular training offered - my manager was excellent and very supportive - my team where experienced, committed and very capable.

      Cons

      - Company lost the ‘family feeling’ it once had and became more corporate - many processes and rules in place just as tick box exercise (health and safety etc). These are important rules so upper management should have taken them more seriously - lack of clarity around staff expectations and performance review process
