In lunch time, canteen has game to play (Xbox , table football etc). The environment I am working at is very flexible, relax. Sometime you can leave early and sometime you cannot.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Everyone is very friendly in our office, however there are lack of spaces due to temporary office... But we do have some event every couple of weeks. Everyone trust you in RCI, so you will feel more freedom rather than lock in and it closed to central Watford, which mean most often we get to party during Friday night.
