What are the best and worst things about your company?
Company culture is very warm and friendly, the training on offer is excellent and I have a great work-life balance. Also a generous benefits package, good location, exciting work, chance to travel and flexibility on where I work.There can be a lot of change and reshuffles are commonplace - resilience to this is important.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The fascinating technical nature of the graduate placements available and the variety of those placements. The graduate scheme can potentially require employees to move every six months and offers relatively little certainty about future location.
