    Pros

    Opportunity to take control and make a difference.
    Decent base salary.
    Good practises being used.
    Some very good staff.

    Cons

    Waterfall methodology with changing requirements and arbitrary deadlines is not agile.
    Confusing form filling exercises to try achieve results.
    Poor benefits package.
    No regard for personal life.
    Multiple systems to record the same information, all of which must be filled in or monitored.
    More development of staff required for the not so strong.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics and unify your systems to streamline development.
    As mentioned on other posts you have a high turnaround in your IT dept. You might want to find out why.

    Pros

    It is overall a fun atmosphere to work in most days. Some people you should just stay away from lol.

    Cons

    When it gets busy it is almost like there's no slowing down in sight. They may also cut your lunch depending on the team you end up on.

    Advice to Management

    There are a select few of managers how are genuinely helpful. Supervisor and team leads not so much.

    Pros

    Great opportinities to progress, great big company benefits. Local management tend to do a good job and over a long period of time do produce decent products

    Cons

    In the end you are a number to them and if the numbers are not working for senior management there is only one outcome.

    Pros

    Top-notch employees - you really grow from being surrounded by so many talented and intelligent people

    Cons

    No. Security. At. All. They frequently try to "cut their way to growth."

  8. Good company to work for but fairly unexciting job opportunities benchmarked against a FTSE100

    Pros

    - Relaxed working environment (dress code, social events etc)
    - Good opportunities for job variation and personal growth (taking the lead of projects)
    - Feedback culture (however isn't always acted upon)
    - Great looking offices
    - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    - Poor salaries for a FTSE100 financial firm
    - Grinding bureaucracy and lack of ownership delegated by senior management, coupled with senior management wanting us to be 'agile' leads to inevitable conflict
    - Unflexible working hours etc
    - Management hiding things that don't really need to be hidden.
    - Some extremely poor immediate line managers (not mine, but observed)

    Advice to Management

    Lead by leading rather than micromanaging and meddling. Don't assume that you know.

    Sort out the structure - it's lopsided.

    Pros

    Stress free work, job security, good benefits

    Cons

    Very head-office focused, relatively low wages (including wage increases), inorganic structure means left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure offices outside Nottingham don't get left out
