There was no flexibility whatsoever.
Can't believe that cr*p-show received 40,000 resumes. Must be a lot of naive kids out there.
It's worse. A 24 year old university Arts grad will get the same starting salary and early career progression timeline as a 40 year old with an MBA and 10+ years of management experience. While waiting 1-2 years to be hired. Any other career track other than IO is a dead end relegated to support roles. Then both will have to learn french and retest (every 5 years?) even though they will never use it.
