Growing company, not big enough to have lots of promotions but this allows for flat management structure and works!

Pros

Every first friday of the month the whole company has drinks at the office.
We have a pool table and wii/ps3 in the offices for all to use.
Free Fresh fruit and fresh coffee for all.
highly regarded staff attitude for pulling together int eh same direction.
Everyone is friendlyand it;s a great atmosphere to worki n.

Cons

Software company that is growing so it;s hasn;t got the opportunities for career progression that other larger companies offer. his is just because the company is small in comparison still.
A lot of reviews on this site state this but I think it;s a good thing because if the company too large you lose the individuality.

Advice to Management

Keep treating your employees brilliantly. Don't stop respecting their intelligence and lsiten to them every chance you have. Keep it up.

    Pros

    Pay and perks are comparably good. Occasionally get the odd bottle of champagne when business goes well. No expense spared with on the Christmas parties.

    Cons

    Staff are expected to work long hours, including regular Friday nights and weekends on call.
    There is an emphasis on projects to deliver on time even if the quality is incredibly bad.
    Very few good Team Leaders, and lots of overseas staff. Not a professional culture.

    Advice to Management

    It might help to have formal dress instead of people wearing jeans/t-shirts and trainers.
