There's possibilities for improvements within the company that need to be addressed immediately to stop from great engineers and great staff from leaving due to ineffective management.

Good work location and culture. Had a reasonable work/life balance and benefits package. Commute to and from work was reasonable.

Complex and top heavy hierarchy of management which made it difficult to streamline processes and operations management.

Jacob's will lay you off quick. This is not for long term career advancement; once the work is gone, you're gone!!!! Jacob's will not keep you for future projects.

Nothing special, management driven and instability, job insecurity.

I had a sweet tongued boss who was too busy saving his chair rather than be a leader for the team.

American company with some odd ideas to the British, but you get used to it. Good to work for with a good team and interesting work.
Loyalty seems to only go one way though (might be the bitter me saying that as just been put at risk of redundancy in the middle of a pandemic (this is after CEO video messaged a while ago that the company was financially healthy to ride out the situation!)
Pros
Free fruit, good working conditions
Cons
None

In general you are paid well but if you are not billable then you get laid off andusually with-out notice. They will tell you they have years of work and then one day shut it all down with out warning.
They recruit you you then lay you off.

A good company to work for. Most managers were effective and supportive, some were distant and not so supportive. The office had groups of old school types, working direct for clients was more pleasant.
