Their job application process involves terms and conditions that you have to agree to in order to get through it. They involve telling you how your data might be SOLD to other companies. Very inhuman. Very insensitive. And that’s only the half of it. Ts an Cs like a police state, and they might not even let you through to interview. Awful.

Complex but friendly at certain levels. Overly bureaucratic. Senior levels more political with little ownership (unless going well or is visible to higher tier). Very much geared to who you know and what you say rather what you do for career progression.
