Featured Review

Current Employee - Applications Support Engineer

I have been working at ANS full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great team/organisational culture, plenty of opportunities to learn & develop with support, lots of new & exciting technologies to work/play with, good range of customers enabling you to see... what does/doesn't work & take those lessons to reuse with other customers.

Cons

The pace is quite intense, it feels constantly like you're just jumping from fighting one fire to the next, with 2 people trying to do 3 people's workload
