Pros

It's just a great place to work, no matter how you look at it. Salary is competitive with other Greater London companies, and working at Softwire you can advance quickly (or slowly) depending on how good you are. It's a true meritocracy, where there are no fixed positions - you just get to do what you're good at, and your job will be tailored to what you want are are able to do.

Cons

Projects can sometimes get boring, though never for too long.

    Pros

    - small, successful and growing company
    - bright staff who are also a nice bunch of people
    - plenty of out-of-work socialising (often with company paying)
    - flexible on hours & work/life balance
    - varied and interesting projects to work on
    - flat management hierarchy & approachable & democratic senior management
    - friendly & respectful office environment
    - annual company conference abroad
    - lots of opportunities to find like-minded people to do stuff with outside of work e.g. company band, sponsored cycle rides (company matches sponsorship), weekend hobby coding sessions
    - I could probably go on...

    Cons

    There's really not that much bad to say about them...
    - work can sometimes be "bitty" if working on several small projects at once (especially as a tester as opposed to a developer)
    - as the company is growing pretty rapidly it is starting to become a challenge for it to keep its small company feel
    - sometimes too much going out (though actually there is never any pressure to do so, but it's hard to say no to lots of free social events!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Softwire really believes in empowering its staff, and further believes that this is what enables Softwire to deliver the excellent customer service that is their primary objecitve. The work life balance is great with table football, pool and company holidays but also real responsibility and the chance to make a difference.

    Cons

    You have to work in Kentish Town, which is a little way out of the centre. Of course as a plus point, it does mean that employees can afford to live close to where they work.

    Advice to Management

    The processes and methodologies at Softwire are excellent, but sometimes just a little more attention could be paid to communication within the organisation.
