    Pros

    It was a fun environment, with lots of progression. There were lots of oppotunities for certain teams but in the Finance department things were limited as there was a budget control in place.

    Cons

    Long hours, bad canteen, not enough communication. Some of the more senior managment is stuck in a rut and not considering new market developments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A clear promotion path.

    Pros

    Pay. Benefits. Working with the coolest sales folks around. Being armed with as much knowledge as possible about the prospective company is in your best interest. Not only will it help you formulate more insightful questions, it will boost your confidence as well.

    Cons

    Commute time, for me. Not much upward mobility without a 4 year college degree. More training options would be great. Allowing more work-from-home arrangements would be even better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more work-from-home arrangements
