    Interesting technology with an enthusiastic user community. Esri (UK) has great people on the ground who are positive and willing to help get the job done. Flexible approach to working is helpful to those with young families.

    Morale-sapping attempts to implement latest business hoopla usually ends in tears.
    Aylesbury - it isn't the centre of the universe...
