7.5/10 - Work here but not for long. Stepping stone company for the young ambitious type.

Pros

People work together and are very lovely to work with. Advanced tech. Medium to fair salary. IG want to say they pay like a bank but they don't. Good parties and monthly free drinks.

Cons

Redundancies made but some middle managers remain. Costing the company 250k a year in salary etc.per person. Possibly a further round of redundancies needed to me made to the middle management not just the long running staff who hold the company up. Bonus pots seem like an old boys club, not linked to how well teams have done but restricted. High rate of attrition. People leave because there is no career prospects.

Advice to Management

Sort out the end of year appraisal system. It's currently a joke. There is also less than zero career development paths for staff in Dev, Marketing and IT Prod. This is why people leave. Promote from within, even if it hurts.

    Pros

    Long sighted business strategy from management Talented people to work with God work life balance Flat structure

    Cons

    Difficult to progress career internally, but for the most part this isn't an issue for me. Given the flat structure there would be no change in roles or responsibilities Out of hours support rota

    Advice to Management
