I have been working for Majestic-12 now for just under 5 months and I have to say, this is by far the best place I have ever worked.
Work-wise, for my first 2 weeks, I was given a few tasks to complete as part of my induction.The main purpose of these tasks was to learn the basics of how to use the programming language Perl and the Catalyst Web Framework model which is used on their website. After that, I was told to start testing their website which actually helped me to get a better understanding of how it actually worked. Since then I have been working on a few webrelated projects for their website.
I’m not afraid to say that I personally found the placement really hard to begin with. But as time passed and with the help of different members of the company, I have slowly grown to understand how their website works and have started to really enjoy working here.
The work ethic of the company is also brilliant. You get your own desk with your own computer and they have a Wii which they play every now and then just to get everyone off the computer. And not to mention, their Christmas party was the bomb!
Overall rating: 9/10 (nothing’s perfect hehe)”
