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

    Pros

    I started this job just weeks ago, I'm in the EUC department and I think I can count the amount of times I've paid for lunch on one hand, so far. The people are amazing and what really make this company. There's always something going on, sweets, chocolate bars, beers, parties - pretty much a weekly occurrence. I came from a big corporate company and things were so different, at Softcat there is a sense of openness, colleagues share their experiences; managers don't boss you about and overall a very relaxing environment to work in. I find it really excells my learning through the amount of support you get from like minded people and budget for things like training and courses.

    The incentives are insane: random games in the office which can attract up to tens of thousands of pounds, cash prize. Themed days in the office where it is compulsory to partake in fancy dress. Along with 5 star trips all paid for, parties big and small, I'm really looking forward to the Christmas ball!

    It has so far been a life changing experience for me and I look forward to being there a long time.

    Cons

    Nothing, oh maybe the amount of hot females in the office, it can't be good for you ;)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, just don't lose the personal touch and FUN that has always been an integral part of the business as Softcat grows.

    Interview Questions
    • At the assessment day I found it to be very stressful in a sense that there were 25 candidates on the day. Therefore I felt it was very difficult to find ways to stand out during the presentation and in answering there basic Q&A's.
      The IQ test was very easy nothing particularly complex.
