Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

A successful and growing company but has mostly retained it's smaller company feeling and culture Low in bureaucracy, fast paced, professional yet informal culture Lots of opportunity to further

Cons

Continued growing pains as the company continues to scale at pace There's always a lot to do and things move fast but sometimes a desire for more control and process results is a lot of wasted effort

Advice to Management

Keep the ambition and the focus on making Abcam a great place to work. Please try to retain unhierarchical part of our culture and treating everyone the same, regardless of job level

    Use of temporary tables in MS SQL Server is more developer friendly and they are widely used in development. Local temporary tables are visible only in the current session.

    Temporary tables are created using the same syntax as a CREATE TABLE except the table name starts with a '#' sign. When the table consists of a single '#' sign, it is defined as a local temporary table and its scope is limited to the session it is created in.
