Progression is not very fruitful within the company....
The business needs to spend more time relieving members of staff who are opposing to change and promote those who advocate it.

My immediate manager was excellent.
His manager however was very micro managing.
I was no allowed flexitime despite the rest of the team having it and WFH seemed to be selective too.
Hourly rate was very low for such an employer too.

Electricians Mate (Former Employee) –  Samlesbury, Lancashire13 December 2017
Good experience, time management, and company.
My work would require high attention to detail and being as accurate as possible; e.g. making sure all the sockets are at the same height and are as straight as possible etc.
This would achieve a happy customer and a good reputation.

Supply Chain – Business Manager, TyTAN (Current Employee) –  Lincolnshire13 December 2017
A typical day in the office entails dealing with the customer, and a diverse range of teams and individuals across the business. The workplace is a formal environment but a good balance is struck between work life and home life. The hardest part of the work is managing the extensive stakeholder base within the company and with the embedded customer community but working with the high end technology and being embedded with the customer makes working here very rewarding.
Pros
Secure Working, Career Development, International Company
Cons
Declining Military budgets impact business success/outlook
