Good salary and benefits, however over the past 5 years development budgets have been cut along with discretionary spend to focus on reinvestment into new categories - appropriate commercial decision, however poorly led resulting in negative work culture and leadership behaviours.

Pros
Good work life balance

Often changing strategies with Senior management fighting for turf.
