    Pros

    Amazing people and culture, lots of opportunities, teamwork, competitive salaries, open to flexible working options, good career progression, looking after current employees

    Cons

    Too many meetings, some old technology (but this is being improved)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve direct communication rather than using email, messaging and formal meetings

  2. A company aiming for growth above everything else. Think twice before accepting the role.

    I worked at Bookatable full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People - The people there are good. You can expect Nerf bullets to be flying around from the IT guys - though this has reduced a lot since my time there.

    Cons

    High high turnover of staff - each month an average of 7-8 people leave.
    Sick days - unless you are dying, you crawl into work.
    Office Politics - There are people in certain positions who seem to have more power then they should. be weary.
    Monitoring - they monitor your every move, if you are away from your desk, you can bet someone has spoken to your line manager regarding your "long" toilet breaks.
    Studies - They offer study packages after a year of service but was told you will not get a raise even after completing.
    Salary - My salary wasn't the worse in the market but my colleague has not had a pay rise in the last 4 years.
    Annual bonus - forget it, they don't give annual bonuses unless of course you are of an Executive Officer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen not only to your management but to the staff who does the donkey work - recognise your companies high staff turnover and actively seek a solution to keep hold of good staff.

    Pros

    Great people from all sorts of backgrounds - very multicultural. Lots of creative and inspiring thinkers with a belief and passion in what the company is trying to achieve.

    Cons

    Career development happens but it's not structured, so you have to make your own luck.

    Pros

    Livebookings fournis aux membres de son restaurant un accès à des millions de dîners potentiels via un réseau mondial de partenaires de réservations sur internet.

    Livebookings provides it's restaurant members with access to millions of potential diners via a global network of online booking partners.

    Cons

    Live bookings n'est pas une société innovante, c'est très difficile de sortir du carcan de pensée. Mais le management est très sympa et les équipes aussi.

    Live bookings is not an innovative company, it's very difficult to think outside the box. But the management is very cool, and teams too.
