    Pros

    I had a great team environment and made a lot of friends. Management is always supportive and will listen to your needs. Work/life balance is very possible and you will always be supported with flexibility. Overtime was offered on a regular basis. A highly extensive training program which really helps with settling into the role.

    Cons

    The role got a little tedious towards the end but that happens with most office jobs.
