    Pros

    They have great benefits and are really focused on creating a good culture! Very sociable and if ever there is a problem they will respond with respect and diligently.

    Cons

    It is a large organisation and easy to get lost in the middle of it all, you have to be intentional. The pay is low, especially for London, and the industry is fuelled by alcohol and bribes.
