Easygoing work environment, friendly staff
Written by Copywriter and Research Assistant (Former Employee) from Melbourne VIC on 15 October 2019
The job culture here was easygoing, but never lazy. I was able to strike a great work/life balance and could work remotely when I had to.

The flip-side to this was that management was occasionally haphazard, and opportunities for advancement were vague.
