Current Employee - Graduate Student

I have been working at Virgin Media full-time

Pros

A challenging yet rewarding graduate scheme with brilliant support as well as great perks.

Cons

Sometimes managers have high expectations and I feel as though I’m carrying out the role of someone above my pay grade and working extra hours, but appreciate the experience in a challenging work... environment.

Advice to Management

Understand capacity within teams. I have been in roles where teams are under capacity and members are strained and teams where there is capacity to support in other areas.
