Enjoyable working environment with very supportive colleagues
Java Systems Developer (Former Employee) –  Bath, ENG8 July 2014
My job involved analysing and liaising with end users and business experts to design and implement program changes to existing forms or create new forms as requested by the Change Management team and to provide end user support for any queries or bugs raised on the forms.
It was a very rewarding job seeing changes tested and implemented to the system making the end experience for the customer a happier one. Time constraints often made it difficult to implement these changes on time but very supportive team work enabled everyone to work well and produce an excellent product.
The most enjoyable part being the team atmosphere and support of colleagues.
Pros
flexi hours
Cons
None
