      I work with a small team of around 20 people. Collectively everyone is so hard working so the work load does not just fall on one person. Amazing staff discount.


      The pay. Minimum wage only. Considering it is a company which turns over billions they should atleast give staff a pay rise.

      Thank you for your lovely review, I will pass on your feedback
