    Pros

    -Amazing people across every team.
    -Management that knows what they're doing.
    -Everyone believes in the products and knows why they go through the day to day, to make a difference.

    When I first joined, Benefex made an effort to make sure I fit in perfectly with the values they hold dear to the company and even specially ordered equipment so I felt comfortable with what equipment I was using. Benefex invests in it's people so that people will eventually bring their best to the table.

    I couldn't be more impressed.

    Cons

    -Parking is expensive in central Southampton- not a problem if you're local
