    Pros

    Cafeteria was nice. Security guards were very friendly and professional.

    Cons

    Many managers were immature, have no class and not so educated, especially those who have been there for 15+ years.
    There were a lot of outsourcing of jobs to other countries.
    They lay off people when they need to make their numbers.
    They do not develop their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete a real, useful degree and then develop your people.

    Pros

    Interesting work
    Good location easy commute
    There is a sense of trying to serve charities
    Ftse 100 firm
    Nice enough colleagues

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations
    Poor work life balance
    Self serving management with no foresight beyond the bottom line
    Archaic HR policy
    Real information does not flow despite a deluge of emails and intranet sites which are supposed to deal with this.
    Insular Departments
    Huge staff turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really cared about people you'd find and release talent that you did not know you had. Results focused policies only lead to harassed, bullied staff who eventually quit. Most of these people want to contribute and are loyal but leave because they feel used and unappreciated.
