What are the best and worst things about your company?
Colleagues, high staff morale, potential for progression, junior staff are allocated responsibility at an early stage. Social events such as the Summer and Christmas parties are a huge plus and the company makes a real effort to make them great events.My office mainly comprises of more senior staff, which means that there isn't much of an immediate peer group.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Find work I am given interesting. Find that from when I started I was given responsibility for a section of work and that as I've been working for longer I have been given more responsibility. Colleagues are nice, helpful and approachable. Personal supervision to help set personal development goals works well. Sometimes hours are unpredictable and therefore I end up in the office longer than expected.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people are very friendly and approachable, making knowledge sharing within the company very easy. The work environment is sociable and friendly which makes it enjoyable to work here, and we also enjoy spending time together outside work, including going to pub or playing football. Project work is also variable and you are often working on multiple projects at once, meaning that no day is ever the same or boring. You are given a larger amount of responsibility from day one and are thrown onto projects. You receive the right amount of support to deal with this.If there is not a lot of project work going around, day can be slow when you have a lack of work to fill the time.
