      Pros

      They pay you relatively consistently. They are all smiles in the beginning. They like to shout in every meeting so that you can keep all of your opinions to yourself.

      Cons

      If there were more words i could be bothered to right that would wipe away the shame that i worked for a company that by name offers assistance but only in the same way as a loan shark, a pimp or a drug dealer up lifts the communities they leach off i would put them here

      Pros

      During my time I worked with some fantastic people! Both in my own team and across the company. It felt like an extended family at times which was nice.

      Cons

      Management (Directors and Senior Leadership) wasn’t aligned and didn’t agree on the future direction of the teams and the business. Conflict here ripples through and impacted many individuals. They often let great people walk away instead of supporting development and growth.
