    Pros

    Well seen outside so good for your resume! Fast paced, so if you are too you can learn a lot despite lack of trainings and organisation.

    No life work balance at all. During Covid increase on demand has been over hundreds % and still same people to work on all the extra projects and they expect the “normal life” to go on. No extra hours paid, no compensation at all. And been reminded all the time that we should be grateful to have a job.
