    Excellent staff treated as commodities.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice bunch of talented people
    Training and development: not so much in terms of qualifications, but rather the opportunity to learn new software and gain experience, which is vital for career progression
    Work-life balance

    ConsWe felt disengaged from the company as a whole: that was good in some ways, but not so in others.

    Salary didn't always reflect the success of the company: there were a lot of salary freezes, office and team changes and overall cutbacks during the bleak times and things didn't really change after new contract wins and improved market conditions. Similarly, as one improved their skills and ended up doing more to help the company, it wouldn't show in their pay. Aside from slight cost of living increases, things didn't change between joining with considerably less experience and three years later, when I was doing a lot more specialist work.

    Perks: the online scheme seemed to be designed to dissuade or at least it just targeted a particular niche (in other words, it wasn't useful at all).

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork out where you are going, recruit accordingly and value your staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Continual downsizing/cutbacks have created a company with little true integrity

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsSome really interesting contracts and work.
    A pool of talented people in some areas.

    ConsPoor middle management. When people are promoted to positions for which they lack the necessary ability, the company do not address the fundamental problems
    No CPD (continuing professional development) despite repeated promises.
    Lack of honesty about company plans. Sudden redundancies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your staff, value them and invest in them. It will reap much greater rewards in the longer term than short-term short-sighted profits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stuck in the past, Management highly inexperienced

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sheffield, England (UK)

    ProsGood Salary, Free Tea & Coffee, flexible working hours.

    ConsManagement highly inexperienced! Really glitchy products! They tend to simply "add a new bit on" which should hopefully mask the broken parts, I think there software has more versions than I do hot dinners!!

    Developers living in the stone age! QA is almost none existent!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to staff more! Seek advice when needed and start looking further afield when developing software, all of it needs a fresh approach! Excellent development teams scattered around Tribal but terrible managers who don't utilize them to the full extent!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good in parts

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat colleagues, great products, strong reputation and brand which gets you through the door of clients'.

    ConsStruggled to capitalize on all intellectual capital of the companies it bought or to leverage off the range of different relationships. Less of a tribe more of a collection of many tribes. Left its value base behind..

    Profit before all else

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sheffield, England (UK)

    ProsWork colleagues are good, management is poor, team spirit is good at times

    ConsBoard do not undestand the software development life cycle and never let you return to 'finish off' an application

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the chalk face workers, come down out of your ivory towers, open your eyes, stop taking bonuses earned by the chalk face workers, adn reduce some of your ridiculous salaries

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
