    Pros

    It is a secure job, people don't get made redundant and you have a lot more freedom than in other companies.

    Cons

    The salaries are terrible, people leave in droves every few years or so and the board doesn't seem to be too concerned, it is almost as if there is a revolving door policy, every few years push salaries down, let people leave and replace with graduates. It is a good place to start your career but don't look much beyond three years before moving somewhere else. If you want to move on, get married, settle down, buy a house then this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using the economic down turn as an excuse to push salaries down, employee happiness is just as important as profit.

    Pros

    The people are amazing in support

    Cons

    Thankless job
    Treated with contempt by devs and project managers
    Low morale
    No chance of third party training, or any further training beyond your first month
    No chance of career development other than other support roles
    Pay is basic
    High turnaround as people get offers over 30,000 for the same job
    Managers will block any internal move you try and make, so you have to leave

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
