I've worked here since 2008 when I left college and I quite like to work with, friendly - it's a it. I work in the IT department and there's a nice atmosphere. Everyone's easy bit like a family really. I'm always busy but we have flexible working hours: sometimes I'm here from 7 to 3, sometimes from 10 to 6. That's good when you've been out the night before! The pay's good too. View 2 replies to this comment

I've only worked here for a couple of months but I already hate it. The people in IT never seem to do “ any work. There's one young guy who's always late, and that can be really difficult. The management isn't very good either. They don't listen to you and they're often not here or too busy to talk. So basically it's a terrible place to work and I'm looking for a new job.

I've been with the sales team at CSP for three months and it's a great place to work. My boss is the best - she's never here, always away on business trips! But seriously, the atmosphere here's pretty relaxed because we often don't have a lot to do, and we probably spend a bit too much time surfing the Internet and having long lunch breaks The pay's not great, but it's enough for now.
