What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great culture within the company! All are welcoming and very supportive of your development. The program is really valued within the company, and expectations of you are clearly set out from the start. You are aligned to a Buddy (someone from last years intake), a Coach (current lead Service Manager) and a Mentor (one of the Senior Management team), who all support your development throughout the programme.There is a lot to learn, and this can be overwhelming. You have to learn to manage your own diary well. There will be days where you need to be proactive in filling your time appropriately.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people - everyone is incredibly friendly and willing to help as a new starter. On the scheme everyone is appointed a buddy (someone from the previous years' programme), a coach (a service manager on an account) and a mentor (member of senior management) so the ability to grow your network and ask for guidance is great. All the contributes to a great culture full of talented people.You need the ability to be proactive and get on with filling your day as sometimes people are too busy to give you diary time and you will have little responsibility.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The general atmosphere and attitude of individuals and organisation; also the way in which success is celebrated is really motivating.A lot of pressure and sometimes the outcome and ultimate success in aspects of the role are completely out of your control.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Significant empowerment as an individual to get the job done in whatever way I see fit. The senior management tend to place a lot of trust in individuals instead of micromanaging. This mindset started to a lesser extent on the Associate Programme but has expanded now that I am in role.When you are not on a specific rotation as part of the Associate Programme you will need to be pro-active in order to make the most of your time. If you are not the sort of person that can use their initiative to go out and engage with your wider team and the business generally, this can be an issue. (realistically the opportunities are there, they just aren't handed to you on a plate!)

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Graduate program extremely well viewed within the company. Level of support given and exposure to senior management are exceptional. Potential for advancement, responsibility and financial reward are huge.Program may feel a bit long.With it lasting 18 months, one can easily get impatient and want to skip through to the account management role straight away. There is however a good reason for it lasting this long; one would not be ready to be successful in the role if it weren't. There is a lot to learn!

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Really great progression path, lots of talented people in the organisation which pushes one to develop. The culture is very intense and there is a real onus on the social side of the workplace.The business (like any of it's size) can be quite siloed between different internal departments.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The company has an outstanding culture for achieving excellence and recognising those who display the qualities the company lives by. Senior management do a good job in communicating the message and the expectations on you are clearly set out. The role allows for you to develop areas you identify yourself within a framework set out by the programme. You are well sponsored in the business to support you on the journey. Very few negatives in either the role or business, but to pick one out would be occasional lack of clarity in rotation objectives.
