    I worked at Lion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic bar on site in Sydney offices. MD was always friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    Way to many meetings. Way to much read tape. Way to many people thinking that they are so important. Talks about Lion Flex and work life balance but make sure you stick to it. Takes such a long time to get anything done. No exit interview offered. Disappointing time.
