What are the best and worst things about your company?

Although I am not familiar with it myself there are plenty of people that play badminton, and squash throughout lunch The first month, was more or less learning about the company and not much happened during the initial month. It felt too academic. The following months however were an improvement

What are the best and worst things about your company?
