"As a graduate I am often assumed to have much more experience and knowledge of what is a very specialist field than should perhaps be expected. This can make learning very difficult, with a clear divide between those who are new to the industry and those who have worked there for years. However the company are focusing on the transfer of knowledge from experienced members of staff and so this should become less of a problem."
Graduate, Bristol
"The large quantity of company processes can end up reducing flexibility."
