    I worked at Lebara


    Stimulating, interesting work with very smart entrepreneurial people all around you. Learnt a lot more there in a year than you would in 3 years elsewhere. Multicultural.


    Pretty skint on employee benefits, pretty tight in that respect. Bit of favouritism, some aspects of the company reflect the start-up type culture that abounds. Sink or swim type place
