One's day starts very early, which helps avoid traffic and lowers stress levels.
I struggled to learn from within the company, as people keep to themselves and do not want to easily share knowledge. Management is pretty much set in its ways and do not involve the "worker bees" too much in decision making.
The workplace culture is very much, keep to yourself and do your work. Do not joke or play any kind of games, as there will be someone who takes offence. It is a very serious culture, and very difficult to become use to.
I enjoyed getting to work early, and then being able to leave early, therefore missing traffic congestion
Arriving at work early, and leaving work early
Not a friendly environment at all.
