Associate Attorney (Former Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 3, 2013
Pros: bar in the office

This is a typical defense law firm. If you end up working with the right partners or on interesting cases, you will do fine here. If you end up with the wrong boss or bad cases, you will not enjoy the job.

Hays placement at Roche, Switzerland
Lab Specialist (Former Employee), Roche, VDJuly 19, 2012
Pros: long work hours imply more pay
Cons: holiday allowance includes public holidays, so watch out, easy to miscalculate the days that are available.
Fantastic, effortless communication line.
Very accommodating, compelled me to be extra productive and double efforts in response to their ‘no problem, let us help you’ nature.
To illustrate this, I miscalculated my holiday allowance and booked a ski holiday for a day too long. I was prepared to return earlier, but was given another convenient option.

Prison Operational Support Grade (Current Employee), Sheerness, ENGJuly 1, 2014
Pros: self satisfaction and learning new things every day
Cons: none really
My day start with the computer, downloading the days visit list and preparing it in the order needed.
I work as part of a friendly team, and the managers are always at hand to answer any questions or worries.
I am still learning different aspects of this job, and love that no two days are ever the same, and theres no greater feeling than when you have – more... put someones mind at rest and they go away feeling reassured.
The hardest part of the job is when someone has turned up without a booked visit and i have to turn them away, i explain the situation to them of why they can not visit and what they should have done, and what they need to do for future visits. – less

Productive and fun workplace
Cashiers Supervisor (Former Employee), New Malden, ENGJune 18, 2014
Pros: great staff and working environment
Cons: appraisals not done
A typical day would start with downloading the previous and current days' financial data from the bankline system BIB (Barclays Internet Banking) into a CSV file, checking for anomalies before uploading it into the JD Edwards accountancy system. I did the Aged Debt report and sent it to Credit Control Managers and Supervisors so that they could help – more... us to reduce the list of outstanding receipts. Sometimes, I did cash forecasting. Then I set about reconciling all the bank accounts. I then resolve queries, liaising with Credit Control, Financial Accounts, Barclays Bank and Accounts Payable to do so. Once I was done with that, I did some cash allocation. I usually allocated around 200-250 remittances daily. I liaised with Credit Control to resolve queries.

I greatly enjoyed liaising with other people and solving queries relating to the Bank Reconciliations and Sales Ledger. I also enjoyed working in a team working towards a common goal of having as little outstanding receipts as possible every month. My managers would take notice of the fact that I took a lot of pride in my work. For example, I once raised my hands in triumph after solving a tricky problem and my manager called me in to tell me they really liked that attitude. – less
