I agree with everything you say. However I would like to highlight one issue. It is imperative you are clear at interview stage what training or induction you are likely to get or whether they expect you to be a self-starter. I have worked at big organisations that give you two days solid of inductions. I have also worked at large firms where I got half and hour and that involved showing me where the kitchen and toilets were and who to phone in IT to get my password from. I know which firm I was more productive in by the end of the first week! So as a manager I enjoy developing techniques to support and rapid on-board each person who joins. We can all learn from the good and the bad experiences we've had.

There's always that strange honeymoon period when you start your first week of work.
