    I have been working at Romax Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good (and always improving) graduate scheme starting with a relevant project followed by rotations through different departments tailored to your skills and customisable by you.

    A very broad range of job roles for engineers including technical, practical and customer facing.

    Excellent office environment, very friendly and supportive with lots of great perks and half day Fridays are brilliant.

    Growing company with scope to work abroad and move around within it so you are not limited to just one job role and the work you do is clearly visible and important.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly and sometimes it's apparent that it hasn't quite caught up with its growth yet, but this is a really minor criticism

    I have been working at Romax Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -A really welcoming and friendly team.
    -HR guide you through the initial few weeks of starting at Romax and are always on hand to help.
    -Romax place a huge emphasis on training staff, I have been in many training sessions that have in some cases lasted weeks at a time to educate me and develop my understanding.
    -Although Romax are a global company and work with many of the biggest company's in the world, they are still a relatively small company, which is great as you are a valued individual and meet most of the people in the UK office.
    -The UK office is new/high spec and actually built specifically to Romaxs requirements.
    -There is a fairly laid back working environment.
    -If you use your initiative you can work on your own projects which is great experience and invaluable.
    -A flat structure in place so you can speak to Senior management relatively easily.
    -Early finish on Fridays mean you can leave after lunchtime!
    -I am proud to tell people I work for such a great company and in general a professional and friendly place to work.

    Cons

    -I think communication within my department could be slightly better at times.
    -You have to pay for a parking permit (however there is a cycle to work scheme if you do not wish to pay).
