      Pros

      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.

      Cons

      Colleagues are brilliant to work with, some very talented people.

      Cons

      Managers live as if it's the 70s and do not understand work/home balance. Even if you late they take you upon it (nevertheless you have come in early on numerous occasions).
