If you like a methodical approach to working practices then Persimmon won't be for you. It's a reactive and at times extremely frustrating place to be. You never have time to properly review your completed work and often put under unnecessary pressure when procedures are not followed. That said I found away of overcoming this adversity by managing the workload accordingly. However the stress involved does take it's toll and like most people who work the S/W office, you become disenchanted with the lack of support and approaches to working practices.
