What are the best and worst things about your company?
- Colleagues are always on had to help if you're ever stuck. - 4 week induction training. - Lots of company events, e.g. impromptu drinks, go-carting, bowling, company conference (usually somewhere abroad every year) etc... - Good sized company, i.e. not too large that you get treated as a number, but still a good variety of people to get to know.

What are the best and worst things about your company?

There aren't many bad aspects of the company I can even begin to think of. The reality of international roles becoming more and more prevalent nowadays could be considered a bad thing if you do not like being away...

This involves being either at the client site or the London office everyday, or a combination of both depending on which project you are on, helping...
