    Allow home working, salary ok, benefits ok too

    Heavy workload and stress due understaffing and not replacing leavers. Do not admit to stress as you will be out at the first sign of redundancies. Little chance of progression....dead man’s shoes!!!

    I worked at Cartus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent starter wage, nice office

    Cons
