Worst job ever in 40 years.
Worked in IT at Scottish Naval base.Management only interested in security and offered no guidance.IT systems I inherited were very obviously installed by incompetent staff.Very clique company - you got on if you were ex-navy or your face fitted regardless of skill.Good benefits a work/life balance.Horrible office which lacked facilities.This was easily the worst job I ever worked in and I'm now retired.Back stabbing was commonplace.Management team seemed/were inbred and lacked industry knowledge.Poor to no training - it was required for me to provide AutoCAD drawings without prior experience - that's a massive package.Management were always off site and couldn't get the commit to system designs.

Hard work with internal staff
As an outsider even though I’m fairly easy to get on with the team did not particularly like outsiders or make me welcome even though I was brought in to assist them with their difficulties
I would not want to work for them again
