An Amazing department to work in
Personal Assistant for 2 Executive Directors (Former Employee) –  Sutton21 November 2016
Working within a Sales department I can honestly say no 2 days were the same. It was a pleasure to be a part of an amazing team. Hard working, loyal and fun is only a fraction of my experience working with Sales guys.
Pros
Incentives, nights out, competitiveness, hard work
Cons
Office politics

Generous holiday entitlement. HQ centric, so remote workers may feel isolated from the corporate culture which is focused around their Sutton offices.

Pros
Freelance, deadline oriented materials
Cons
Short lived based on my own time constraints

Accounts Payable Representative, Purchasing (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA11 November 2014
A fast paced environment, but working with my co-workers was enjoyable and fun. We were a team that worked together to make things happen on a timely basis. We learned each others jobs in order to cover one another during vacations and absences. Our manager was an amazing woman who always had an "open door policy" and made sure that you were trained in all areas of accounting. The most enjoyable part of the job was coming in everyday and the hardest part was saying goodbye when there were layoffs.

Started off a people company
Senior Production Support Developer (Former Employee) –  East Grinstead, ENG24 January 2014
Joined the company from the civil service
Plenty of support from colleagues and managers.
No hierarchy, everyone was equally helpful

Was a 'everyone muck in', the business requirements were paramount

Just before I left due to redundancy, the company had turned into a 'the answer's No, now what's the question?' everything became paper bound with the business crying out for action and the IT departments stone-walling
The whole company was in a state of 'what happened to the good old days?'
Pros
good work environment
Cons
none at first
