    Pros

    Good experience, in at the deep end, got to drive some cars. Met Some great colleagues There are some great placements here, I know cause I placed people on them.

    Cons

    Terrible management, being on placement from uni they took advantage of you to do anything they didn’t want to do. Expectation to work 10 hour + days with no complaint. No flexibility in working from home or hours. But they expected you to be flexible to them. Reported into someone who couldn’t handle the responsibility of what in hindsight was a really easy and not overly important area of the business.
