    Pros

    Organisation was perfect and everyone was made to feel like they're a real part of the company. The on site cafe is the best part of working here.

    Cons

    The library _ this is my personal issue as I have OCD and find the books are not collated correctly. Nonetheless, I spent several hours each evening making sure it was perfect for our slaves.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Harvard University (London, England) in March 2015.
