Pros

A company which really cares about the quality of work they do, the clients and the people who work for them. Always trying to improve and to do the right thing by everyone, while still remaining competitive.

Cons

It can be stressful when resources are tied up on other projects.

Advice to Management

Sometimes people require a little bit more active help than is given in order to progress.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, flat hierarchy with very approachable and senior management and directors who are genuinely interested in and care about what people do.

    Cons

    Should be more proactive to emerging opportunities in the market place to ensure it continues to grow. Offshore model poses some challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to be tough and take risks. Doing whatever we can to make SFW to be an even better place to work will involve making some difficult decisions and investments.

    Pros

    + Great people, relaxed environment + Fantastic and friendly management + Great work/life balance + Varied range of clients and work + Great location, right by train station + Very flexible work environment + Have received a fantastic amount of talented help which has shaped who I am as a developer

    Cons

    - Has a tendency to silo knowledge on 4 or 5 specific people - Quite a lot of work is on old technology like .NET 2.0 - Agile hasn't been managed very well compared to other companies I've worked for - It is a bit of a pain working with staff in India as a result of poor audio connection

    Advice to Management

    Fantastic and friendly management, very transparent. My only advice would be to look for a certified scrum master or two to oversee the shift to Agile
