    Hi There Thank you for sharing this feedback. I am disheartened by the Cons listed here and would encourage you to get in contact with either line manager, your HR representative, a member of our Young Engineers Forum or myself to discuss these in more detail. There is of course our internal Rungway platform if you would like to seek some broader views and guidance on your experiences. Employee experience is of great importance to us and so your feedback will be welcomed and valued. It's vital we understand more about what may not be working for someone, so we can work with them to ensure things improve, for everyone. We are keen to learn and help. Many Thanks
