An interesting and varied scope of work, rarely the same issues on subsequent days. The style of management is also highly varied. The work-place culture is relaxed. The hardest part of the job is navigating through complex HR processes to deliver annual staff appraisals. The most enjoyable part is the varied work.

A huge learning curve at first but there were so many helpful colleagues, it was quite easy to join to team. Very fast paced, working simultaneously on several high value and complex projects. Lots of responsibility in leadership and decision making but this was the challenge I was looking for and I love the job.
Pros
Friendly colleagues; challenging work;high value, complex projects
Cons
Lots of process and bureaucracy
