    Pros

    Great coworkers, solid work/life balance.

    Cons

    Leadership keeps changing and this may be the worst set yet. They talk a good game, and the Brits certainly think highly of themselves, but there is incredibly poor communication. Talent retention is non-existant. There are no cost of living increases and they basically make you wait as long as they think you will without leaving before giving a subpar raise. It leaves all of us feeling truly unappreciated, no matter what they say about the process being merit-based. We went over a year without an employee evaluation program in place. Clearly it wasn't a priority.
