"Global, sector-focused, friendly and inclusive."

  • Trainees are given a high level of responsibility and good quality work early on.
  • Both formal and informal training are treated with high importance.
Cons: 
  • Responsibility and quality of work varies between departments.
  • Hours can be long, again depending on the department.
  • Some felt that there were a lot of administrative tasks.
  • There is not as much notice regarding seat moves as some would like.
