This was a temp post, I did not expect it to last. I felt my manager would have kept me on, be he had constraints preventing this. The business was being transferred to a new owner and so budgets were very tight. They used SAP, my first encounter with this particular software. Hopefully my last!!
Pros
Historically important site
Cons
really hard to get to.

Flexible work time, work from home available, work is not interesting for electrical engineers, training approvals are delayed. Management has no strategy for work force utilisation.

Spent 13 years here in various roles and under many company names.Learnt a great deal but also felt as though I offered the company a lot. I totally bought into the improvement of the planning department and I think it was heading in the right direction.

I worked in a team of 15 men, I was the only female in that team, with one manager in charge, who I found to be very kind, outgoing personality, had a joke here and there. Loved working with the lads, each of them different. I was saddened to have left the company due to redundancies after working 6 years for the company
Pros
Flexible working
Cons
Objectives and reviews every 6 months
