    I worked at High Speed Two full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, new build and fully equipped offices, with up to date meeting room provisions

    Cons

    Lacking organisational culture, think this will improve over time, as reasonably new organisation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at High Speed Two (Birmingham, England (UK)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Job description was relatively wide and generic, but when i got to the interview it turned out the job was for a specific group of stakeholders and all the questions were based on this. I had limited experience working with these stakeholders and wouldn't have applied for job if i knew this was the case.
