    Pros

    - Great for experience locally. So much of the knowledge has exited the company over the last 4-6 years that its easy to get experience without stepping on toes - Great opportunity to be involved in an emerging industry if FD can get ahead - Great employee environment. Great people to work with locally - Reasonable work life balance but fluctuates depending on leadership

    Cons

    - Constant leadership changes. Lack of decision making - There has been a short term vision and focus at a local level. Showing signs of changing - Employee experience changes depending on direct leadership. Perception of no of HR strategy

    Pros

    Some great people in the business to work with. Great benefits & pay OK. Some managers very approachable.

    Cons

    The company has a big turnover in staff and nothing is done to retain them. A bit of manipulation within teams when delegating work. Communication between departments is not up to scratch and management don't fully understand what's going on in their areas or they turn a blind eye to things.
