      Pros

      Decent to good work life balance

      Cons

      When talent arrives, they bleed it dry and then hang it out to dry because they are frightened to be challenged to change. There are managers at senior levels making decisions that are not qualified in the area they are in and its impacting the turnover of talent, who are qualified. How they have merits for mental health awareness I really dont know. Taking away access to mental health support when you need it, because you decide to leave, Its shocking behaviour.

      Pros

      My team is good, friendly and collaborative. Immediate management are supportive. Good diversity & inclusion values.

      Cons

      Workload very high, poor work/life balance. Senior management don't seem to have a single focused strategy, it's quite a scattergun approach where everything is a priority... this makes it a challenge to deliver anything effectively. Pay is poor compared to other companies, and no progression opportunities for my role in 2 years.
