I worked at Cancer Research UK full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The majority of the staff are great...

Cons

...however there are some that aren't so nice that really shouldn't be working there. For example one of them said that he sacked me because "I would not fit in" - exactly the problem that those with Asperger's Syndrome have.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please reinstate me.
