On the whole, development teams at moneysupermarket (MSM) are self-organising and have adopted Agile approaches to software development. Some teams deliver software using Scrum, others more of a hybrid Agile approach. Teams are empowered to analyse and adapt accordingly. There's some really good engineering practices such as TDD, Automated Testing, Continuous Integration, and the team are currently exploring Continuous Delivery. Kanban has been introduced within one particular team with great results. I think this is a great reflection on how the organisation has made a cultural shift. A complete contrast to 2 years ago. If you want to really accelerate your learning then MSM is a great place to be. There are weekly "brown bag" sessions where individuals do a lunchtime presentation on a subject of interest. There's also many coding dojo's where cross functional teams learn about thinks like Ruby.Cons
As with most commercial organisations its a high pressure environment. The pipeline of work seems never ending.
Technical environments don't seem to be managed very well, so getting hold of the right infrastructure when you need it can often be frustrating.
Parking is a problem so you need to get in early to get a parking space, otherwise your only option is to park in the overflow carpark which is half a mile away (although a free MSM minibus transports you back and to).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Get rid of reserved parking spaces for executives and enter the parking lottery like the rest of us. Also, you really don't need offices that big. Why not give up some of that floor space and create a breakout room with a pool table?RecommendsApproves of CEO
