On my first day at Pope Woodhead I was greeted by HR, welcomed with a cup of coffee, given a brief orientation and complete tour of the facilities before being introduced to the different teams. I was given a complete overview of the company structure and most importantly, their values.
After a few weeks, the first thing I noticed was how the people at Pope Woodhead practice such company values on a daily basis; there is no sense of hierarchy, there is a true flat structure where everyone is approachable and happy to provide advice.
I had the impression that the team was not only ready for me to start, but they made sure I understood that I was valued, welcomed and recognised as a significant part of the team. As such, I feel it is a great environment to be in, especially for new starters
