Pros

Great varied work in a fast paced environment with challenges and recognition for hard work. Forward thinking business looking to innovate both in technologies and in working practices. There is... always something going on at head office such as Christmas markets, charity days, bake sales, product launches and themed days (peppa pig visited the nursery a few months ago). On site nursery Flexible working hours Additional holiday available to buy Share schemes Continual investment into head office - refurb of already impressive restaurant, additional parking being added, joining offices by building bridges to connect departments to aid collaboration (

Cons

Not enough hours in the day to work on all the innovative projects.
