Pros

  • Graduates work on cutting-edge projects and are eventually able to see many of the results in action.
  • The unique working hours mean that employees get every other Friday off work.
  • Most feel that they have a fair and competitive salary.
  • There’s a strong social atmosphere between graduates both in and out of work.

Cons

  • Some feel that promotions can slow down once they reach the management level.
  • The UK branch is smaller than others so may not be the centre of the company’s focus.
  • Some may find the size of the company intimidating.
  • While it can eventually help with promotions, particularly hard work may not come with many short-term rewards.
