    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Farnham, South East England, England (UK)

    I worked at BCA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company appears to be financially doing very well and the company car with 18000 fuel allowance for development and techies is good.
    There are some nice people there ...

    Cons

    In a period of turmoil, big problems with staff retention and many unhappy people wanting to leave.
    Attempting to be 'agile' but missing the whole point of agile with blame and day long meetings .. Not sure what benefit the scrum master really brings. A real antiquated environment of dull lined up desks and no evidence of personality, creativity or passion. Rigid inflexible working hours, no working from home , no private health or standard benefits. Low holiday allowance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The competition is incredibly high out there for the best creative IT staff, if you want to attract the best talent and turn a dull oppressive place into somewhere attractive and dynamic you need a major overhaul ..

    Pros

    The people you meet while out on the road are very nice.
    Some of the vehicles you get to drive are awesome.

    Cons

    Admin control and planning departments not fit for purpose.
    Pass the buck attitude.
    Late and missing payments are so common that a week where no mistakes occour is treated like a lottery win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To sort out the problems would be a case of a thorough audit and remedial training.
