    I worked at Cancer Research UK full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The majority of the staff are great...

    Cons

    ...however there are some that aren't so nice that really shouldn't be working there. For example one of them said that he sacked me because "I would not fit in" - exactly the problem that those with Asperger's Syndrome have.
