    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the virtual experience?
  • The timings set for the workload was unrealistic and having socials two nights until 8pm was difficult as I thought that time would have been best spent completing the work. A lot of calls also ran over so I found it hard to make time for lunch / dinner on a number of occasions.
