    Pros

    There are so many great things about working for PP but I would say the main one is the people and the culture! everyone is so friendly and even though it is a high pressured environment, we all get along brilliantly. The team are so supportive with anything and there is so much clear room for progression. The management team are always willing to listen to any ideas you have and will do their best to help you. With a great social aspect and great values too, they really are the most credible company I have had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have any cons about working here!
