Great place to start your career

Associate (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsWide range of industry and functional project experience. Phenomenal stepping stone to almost any subsequent business career in a large organization.

ConsInevitably you will be placed on a project that is either boring, tedious, highly time-consuming, or all of the above.

Advice to Senior ManagementRefrain from selling non-value-added projects even if there is a short-term financial gain for the firm to do so.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
