    Very strong company to work for with great culture and talented people. Training excellent and no surprise that so many alumni have gone on to great things.

    Cons

    Very little in terms of cons but fair to say when the company was bought by Three there was a completely different culture and a real inability to manage and communicate from the top, to staff and customers.
