    I have been working at Arqiva full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I couldn't, after scratching my head for 2 hours, think of any positives this company had on my career development.

    Cons

    Everything an aspiring recent graduate wants is missing in this company. My managers had no idea on the software I was working on, I could tell them anything and they would sit there nodding like idiots. They wasted money and time on things which weren't necessary, and alienated the experienced staff who had been with National Grid wireless and NTL broadcast ( before the merger and acquisition of these companies which resulted in the new company Arqiva). Their aim to "streamline" and micromanage the development of the software without knowing anything about the software caused problems between management and staff. This company should be avoided if you are young and looking to work on the cutting edge of computing/IT technology; when I left they were still using Windows XP. I left after 6 months, by which time I still had no dedicated development computer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put people in positions for which they have no experience. Your company, especially the IT department, is a joke. I laughed when the email was circulated saying you wanted to be in the top 10 employers in the UK. Firstly, you have no dedicated graduate scheme, and all the top 10 employers have a graduate scheme. Secondly, your company is using antiquated IT technology. I wonder what your clients will think?
