"A human-orientated company that allows people to develop."
Pros: 
  • Graduates are given a high degree of flexibility with their working hours.
  • Members of management are regularly available and helpful.
  • Varied and high-level work is given to employees from an early stage.
  • 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.
