I have been working at Delcam full-time (More than 10 years)
Work is interesting and challenging with always lots to do. Colleagues are friendly and helpful with everyone always pulling together to get things done.
Small Heath isn't the nicest area of Birmingham but has good public transport and road links plus there's ample onsite parking. Birmingham itself has vastly improved for night life over the last 10 years.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Delcam (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2015.
Straight forward application form, got an offer for assessment day 5 days later. Assessment day: -1 hour Numerical/Logic test, no preparation required for this, you can either do it or you can't. -15 min tea break. -1 hour C++ programming test (on paper). Need to prepare for. Somewhere in your assessment day invitation email it will say "You don't have to know any C++ to pass the test...", don't let this deceive you, in my opinion the test requires a solid understanding of C++ to even read the questions, let alone answer them. The test consists of an A4 page of C++ code, you are then asked some questions on the code and to write some function bodies to match the function prototypes. The test (well my test anyway) made heavy use of linked lists and pointers so make sure you have a solid understanding of them. -Successful candidates then go on to get interviewed.
