  • While there is a hierarchical structure, it feels as though everybody is listened to as equals.
Cons: 
  • Some manufacturing sites can be located out of the way, leading to reduced social opportunities.
  • The company is growing so quickly that aspects of HR can feel stretched.
  • If travelling is required, it may mean time away from home.
  • The early training is considered to be good, but could be more structured.
