What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great opportunity to gain experience quickly e.g. working with managers, heads and at a higher level of work than an entry level job.- Wage: you don't get a chance to have a pay rise in the two years. - Such a large company hard to make any impact.

The people and all working towards one goal.The charity sector is going through a difficult time at the moment with low trust levels - it can be frustrating having to justify everything to friends and family.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Being given responsibility way above standard entry level roles and clearly being valued and championed across the charity.Having to leave a role 6 months in when you're feeling confident in the work you do!

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Best is the problem solving aspect - it can be very rewarding and it has massively improved my excel, reporting and analytical skills. There's also a lot of skilled people to learn from.The worst is probably due to the nature of the work and the level it's not always feasible to do project work. There's a lot of processes and business as usual work to do which is good to help learn but sometimes difficult to be creative with.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Exposure to senior people, access to high level meetings, great support from a wide variety of sources, responsibility I would never have in an entry-level role.Always being the most junior, the sign off culture here, dealing with very dense/technical scientific papers and information.
