No at all. There are no clear guidelines. I had to be very independent. There were also a lot of ad-hoc tasks which took up a lot of time. There was minimal training and I had to learn them myself.

Below average. However, I am not a big spender hence the package received was still rather sustainable.

There were a lot of company activities planned by the staff welfare committee which were free or low cost. The activities were of wide range and included sports, volunteering, day outs etc.
