    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    I have been working at Avaloq full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Full of skilled and motivated people
    Half flex-time, core hours 10-4 but can be switched around in the week
    Company spends a lot of effort in the beginning on training, even including a few weeks at the head office in Zurich
    Software development is the core business, so opportunities for promotion in technical roles e.g. senior developer or software architect
    New office: raise-able desks to standing height (big plus in a desk-job profession), pool table in common area and expensive coffee machines
    At present the company has very good prospects, a lot of sales successes and a lot of future work and business to come.

    Cons

    40 hour working week, bit high for Edinburgh, though flexi-time does mitigate this somewhat (in any other job you'd work extra hours at times without being able to get it back the next day)
    Swiss culture takes some time getting used to. Google translate often needed for German/French/Spanish issues/specifications etc.
    Overall benefits are good but pay for Edinburgh is a bit flat. Company seems to just try and meet "market rate".

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avaloq in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process was the following:

    First interview was with the HR manager and the leader of the team. They focused basically on my background and the reasons why I applied for the job.

    The second interview was with the team leader, the chief of the department and with one employee of the team. They focused more on technical details. The first part of this interview was with the chief, who asked me details about my master thesis, my background and my view about software development. On the second part I gave them a presentation about my work, they made me several questions related on that and then they gave me a problem to solve it. They gave me also a part of their code and they asked me to explain what it does.
