Very satisfying, a great place to work but lacklustre salary and higher management too focussed on money and not quality

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Shoreham-by-Sea, England (UK)

I worked at Ricardo as a contractor

ProsVery competent on the ground. Extremely nice/competent/professional people to work with and genuinely very interesting. If you want to do something, and are proactive about it, those around you and management will generally be very helpful. A really great place to work. The knowledge you gain will also be invaluable.

ConsThe salary is poor and higher management have got it all wrong. Their focus seems to be on time and money, rather than quality and it's gradually taking its toll.

Advice to Senior ManagementTheir attitude to nurturing the talent, both in good times and bad is appalling and they have lost a lot of good people. I want them to do well, but unless some attitudes change near the top, their reputation and business will suffer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
