    Pros

    Great at being flexible and supporting you through your exams - line manager was fantastic to work with on a personable level

    Cons

    Shocking culture and diversity in the London office, senior members of staff can seem condescending and bureaucracy actually stops you from getting any real work done - people love to just talk about other people

    Advice to Management

    We’re not in 1980 anymore, stop putting off young talent joining and sort out your pathetic culture
