Not so impressive
Mid Manager (Former Employee) –  HO13 May 2018
I worked under the Finance umbrella. Within a year of joining I left, disillusioned by some of the truly staggering waste. Poorly considered projects, lack of intelligent due diligence followed by the inevitable flop, suppression of information and passing out of the Kool-Aid was not uncommon.. We've seen it before in other lightly regulated NFPs.. A management consultant's dream,there were more than a few CBS cows exchanged for magic beans...

On the bright side, lots of high quality and committed people delivering on the day-to-day mandate.
Pros
A number of Pros and some outstanding amateurs
Cons
Yes I saw more than a few cons....
