    Pros

    Opportunities to learn and do new things available, highly skilled people to work with, encouragement company wide to develop personally and professionally - with lots of opportunities to take part in development workshops, training and courses.

    Cons

    Not as many vacancies as there used to be few years ago. Less choice and more competition for now.

    Analyst Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at British Gas.

    Interview

    Recruiter hadn't read my cv and went ahead to let me know. Interview was fine except for that horrible start.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Bait and switch tactics used.
