    Pros

    Very nice perks such as discounts everywhere, paid for accommodation, dry cleaned laundry, transport to and from work. Good salary.

    Cons

    Unstable hours, not much of a work/life balance. Working with a different team of people everyday in itself can be both a good thing and a bad thing. Sometimes you have really great colleagues to work with other times they can be awful, you never know how the day is going to be.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with your expectations and try not to treat us as 'numbers'.
