What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Flexible working. Lots of training opportunities as well as career opportunities as time goes on. Although I joined as a chemist it doesn't feel like your restricted to your field, you can get involved in many different things.
Wasn't told about all the travelling between sites. Although that soon won't be a problem. If you join as a scientist you might not be in the lab most/every day. Lower pay than industry!
