Good company
A good company to work for. Most managers were effective and supportive, some were distant and not so supportive. The office had groups of old school types, working direct for clients was more pleasant.

Very dependent on manager- inconsistency in messaging. Culture noted as a key factor but not always given the importance in reality which is disappointing.
