    Consultant

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsHighly diverse range of activities day-to-day.
    Forward looking company for sales and markets.
    Great people to work with.
    A great place to learn new skills so long as you put in the effort yourself.

    ConsToo many activities without adequate management.
    No project management for concurrent tasks.
    Line managers do not have enough time to actively manage their teams.
    Too many different requests with conflicting priorities makes the day-to-day job occasionally stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuild a PMO and get all the projects resourced and tracked correctly.
    Allow managers to manage rather than seconding them to high profile tasks and leaving their teams bereft of strategic direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mixed Opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDepending on department great opprtunities for advancement and a very good atmosphere. If you are feted to be working in a profitable section you will have scope for career development and personal development.

    ConsVery variable across the country, Tribal is a series of small companies bought together by investors with a vision, what that was appears to have been lost and Tribal is struggling to define itself and within it's markets. This can must make management difficult and decisions often seem arbitrary with career development tied to whatever is the new vogue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA clear vision is needed for the future is needed.

    Stuck in the past

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Sheffield, England (UK)

    ProsHelpful and friendly people (mostly anyway)
    Global contracts with high potential
    Flexible working hours
    Attempting some agile methods
    Office newly refurbed
    Free tea and coffee

    ConsSoftware is dated
    Although there are a few good developers, innovation is stifled by those in charge.
    Very much a software hacking company with few industry standard patterns or methods used. It's all about bolting on some new half baked features and shoving it out the door.
    Lip service is as much attention as testing is given.
    Senior devs fear change due to their lack of knowledge and experience outside of tribal.
    They need to drag themselves into this decade and put more focus around quality.
    Management are very inexperienced and run around like headless chickens (literally)
    Much more agile methods are needed around the software development if they are to sell themselves as "agile", it's more than just two week iterations and a daily stand up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage new ideas, there are developers with good experience on the floor.
    Learn more about the software development cycle.
    Place more emphasis on quality and a little less on new half cooked features.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Short, and not very sweet

    Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsColleagues were welcoming, supportive and always willing to give advice to projects, even if not personally invovled.

    ConsUnfortunately the Company has gone through many changes over the past few years, leading to dissatisfaction, unease and unrest amongst employees. Communication from the top down was poor, suggestive of a sentiment that the employees were merely commodities to be traded for the best possible share yield.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecide on your plan and stick to it; don't keep changing the goalposts for people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Consultant

    Management Consultant (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThere are opportunities to work in different areas of the UK and abroad- not that I have looked into it. Large organisation with different areas of expertise. People come from a variety of backgrounds. Within the organisation there are different sectors that you can work in.

    ConsNot that much integration between departments. Not always kept in the loop. Management could handle employees in a better manner, giving feedback throughout projects and manage issues in a better manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep employees up to date with what is going on in the company.
