      Pros

      MBDA, since starting, has offered countless opportunities for socializing, career development, and more. The work is interesting. The sites are nice. But most of all, the people make the company for me. They're kind, helpful, and always keen to share insight and make you day that bit easier.

      Cons

      Workload has varied from a stable amount, to too little.
