      Pros

      Good people, friendly environment, benefits and payed holidays are the best ever I've seen.

      Cons

      Very slow pace, very slow to make any change. Data infrastructure is quite old.

      Thanks for sharing your feedback. There's definitely more left to work on, including (as you say) the continued upgrade of our data infrastructure. We hope to continue making progress on this, so we can release changes ever faster in the near future.

      Pros

      Good people wanting to do the right thing. The UK Call Centres had good processes and procedures which made it easy to deliver the service required.

      Cons

      Sold parts of the business to various parts of the world. We saw decrease in UK workers but seemingly an increase in unhappy customers.
