What are the best and worst things about your company?
The best thing is that everyone is very supportive and helpful. On the Projects Graduate programme, we are aligned to a Buddy (usually a Project Manager) and a Mentor (usually Senior Project Manager). Additionally, whilst rotating around the organisation, you have the opportunity to build your network and whilst doing this you will meet a range of people across different departments who are always willing to help and guide you. Some periods of intense travelling whilst on rotations so you will need to be flexible. However, it is part of the job role and will settle over time.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Opportunity to travel around the UK (Manchester, London, Reading and Hatfield) and wherever your rotations take you. Endless Opportunities.  Opportunity to work with global organisations. The opportunity to sit industry known accreditations including Prince2 and ITIL. 6 months rotation around the business before you start project work so you really get to understand how the business functions.  The opportunity to network.  Everyone is open-armed and welcoming regardless of their status (CEO, Directors, Managers Etc...)  The prospect to easily move in any direction you want within the company.  The company car! The Joining Bonus! Projects are projects and they do not always go to plan therefore you have to be thick skinned and have the ability to dive deep.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
My favourite thing about the job is the independence and responsibility you're given, at any level. You aren't chained to your desk from 9am til 5.30pm. Dependent on the project, you are trusted to manage your time within reason, providing that you are getting the job done. There is a fair bit of 'admin' involved in the job. Admin is never the most fun thing in the world, but it is in all jobs, and the variation in the job prevents the admin from getting too dull!

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!)
