I have been working at KIT digital full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
The Ioko part of KIT still offers the opportunity to work on some of the most interesting projects in the North of England. Kit in York offers a relaxed informal working environment with probably the highest percentage of professional, capable and hard working staff I have ever worked with. The organisation was a mess when KIT took over, KIT introduced a management and board team that were out of their depth with the size and complexity of the organisation and seemed to be obsessed with creating some kind of start-up environment that no one bought into. Much of what they brought was trivial, embarrassing and smacked of people playing at being a high technology company. Ioko were already a big success story built on a mature and serious but informal approach with great pride in the quality of our work. KIT came along without a plan and without anyone to deliver a plan anyway and tried to turn the organisation into some hideous cariacature better suited to a hollywood film about a technology start up. Things quickly came to a head many of these senior figures disappeared and everyone breathed a sigh of relief as some sanity and maturity came back to the business as each of these left.
KIT has seen a lot of attrition which is to be expected although, with one or two exceptions the consensus amongst my peers has been that it is only in the main, those who weren't really rated by their peers who have left - a lot of dead wood has been shed and in many cases this has been good as it has allowed others to flourish some extremely high earners who used to swan about the place have also disappeared with no measurable impact on the company other than perhaps making it more profitable.... There is a lot of bile in some of the other reviews on here and i guess that is understandable but i also think that some people had an unrealistic view of KIT/Ioko where they thought the business was their to serve them and no one else; the organisation is better without these people.
Things now appear to be heading in a more positive direction and there is a small but significant optimism building in the company. Kit retain a lot of their excellent staff and hopefully the organisation can rise to the heights i believe it rightfully deserves.Cons
