    Sales-driven management sacrifice culture for revenue

    I worked at 7city Learning full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - good salary (if you negotiate it, which is very possible given it's a small company and you can deal directly with the CEO);
    - informal atmosphere;
    - decent, high-end product.

    Cons

    - the sales-driven culture of the senior management is implemented at the expense of literally everything else;
    - huge turnover of sales and marketing staff in the New York office ie. don't expect to last long;
    - senior management treats employees (except financial instructors/trainers) as inferior and with little respect. For example I got fired without any inkling my performance was not up to standard or without any guidance on how or what I could improve;
    - the company is very 'UK-centric', with little priority given to US activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly the management have been successful building this company from scratch, however the US side of the business won't grow unless they trust and empower employees who actually want to achieve results.

    No individual office space.
    Revenue figures manipulated often by reduction in work-force.

  3. Best of the training providers to work for

    I have been working at 7city Learning full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sense of camaraderie, being at the cutting edge of learning technology and great perks. This is the best training provider in the UK and it is a fulfilling place to work.

    Cons

    Long hour and demanding positions. Your superiors really do expect a lot from you. It also has some of the typical disadvantages of a relatively small company.
