Pros & Cons

  • The culture is really great. My colleagues are very supportive and understanding.
  • Culture. Flexibility. Community.
  • Breadth of opportunity to learn. People are patient and understand you are learning so don't put unrealistic pressures on you. Work-life balance. People and culture.
  • Graduates are highly regarded, seen as important members of the team with value to add. They are flexible with work arrangements and encourage personal development
  • It's a fairly uncertain sector, so job opportunities can be limited.
  • Politics. Managers in back-to-back meetings.
  • It is very large with lots going on and can feel like it is almost too big to get your head around.
  • Working in a large organisation means that it is not always the fastest process to get things approved/moving - lots of stakeholders that need to be consulted.

Culture
Very open and engaging. Managers are a part of the team and are easy to chat to. The teams want to know about your life outside of the office. Socializing at the moment is harder because of COVID but beforehand we would have coffee catch ups of after work drinks. There is a good balance between making sure we have a chance to chat and laugh but also get the work done in our meetings.

Business analysis, planning, international relations and stakeholder communication. I studied International Relations and International Business, and consider myself lucky to be able to apply these to my day-to-day responsibilities, evaluating relationships between countries and wider consequences.

Office Work Environment
The office is really nice and close to public transport and everything you could need (food, coffee etc.). It is easy to access and move through. Each floor has the necessary facilities required for the staff so you don't need to be changing between floors to access things like toilets, kitchens or printers. The dress code is between a neat casual and office-wear, depends on the team.

Recruitment
The graduate hiring process was the best out of all the companies I applied for. Felt like the company celebrated diversity and unique individual qualities and it was less about the degree you had and more about the person you are.

I am working from home at the moment. I would occasionally have to work late nights on calls to colleagues around the world from home, which meant I was able to come in to the office mid-morning the next day

I believe it is a very high importance, they frequently talk about it and what they are doing to achieve their goals.
