Depending on what team you are in you may be required to do a significant amount of work that does not utilise your tertiary level of education (typical of teams that do not have well established roles for graduates). I do understand though that someone has to do this work and a graduate is the most likely candidate...but it should not dominate in terms of time.
Graduate work is quite unfulfilling; lack of openness to fresh ideas
They're clean and open. And bright. They have coffee machines. And a yoga studio in the ground floor for surrounding offices. Close to cafes. Easy public transport access. It is all flexi-desking, so be prepared for not having a permanent personal desk. Dress code? Dress respectably, and you'll be fine. "Business casual" is probably the closest dress code. Some people wear branded uniform shirts every day, some people wear suits. These people can sit next to each other but isnt a requirement.
