  • There’s a very sociable atmosphere and people of all levels are easy to talk to.
  • Pay is seen as being fair and there are regular performance-based reviews.
  • Work given to graduates is varied and interesting and fits well around training.
  • There’s a good degree of flexibility when it comes to hours and a strong focus on work/life balance.


  • The online training isn’t always as engaging or structured as people would like.
  • Some processes can feel slow due to the size of the company.
  • While efforts are made to improve the company’s environmental impact, more could be done.
  • As with other areas of the industry, diversity could still be better.
