What are the best and worst things about your company?
Seem to put faith in the Graduates, it is possible to get a lot of work fast and work on projects I didn't expect graduates would have the opportunity to work on. Work can be interesting and diverse and the graduate trips are good. There is no work plan for the graduates over the 2 years course. It has positives and negatives. Positives: it may mean a problem arises and you can get dropped in to sort it out, gaining a lot of experience and positively impacting your career. There is some choice as to where you will go and what you will be doing.You may be required to work in roles that aren't related to your scheme to help out the business, which wastes your time on the scheme. You are never really sure where you will be next or what you are doing, the plan can change month by month or even week by week.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The level of responsibility, accountability for my age and experience, they let you push yourself.Essentra is still developing as one corporate entity and sometimes this can be frustrating.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
I've had a great deal of exposure in the company and being on the graduate programme is a lot of fun as we have the opportunity to see some of the company's sites across the world.It's pretty quiet in the office a lot of the time, but usually because everyone is busy with lots to do.
