      Pros

      Plenty of opportunities, lots of projects and good people to network with. Good office spread outside city centre.

      Cons

      Internal promotions are a thing of the past. In terms of career progression until last 12 months not many internal opportunities. Senior Management at times appear to make decisions that are based purely on cost saving. At times lots of OT to satisfy client deadlines and needs, but no TOIL or pay for it.
