I worked at Tribal Group

Pros

Nice bunch of talented people
Training and development: not so much in terms of qualifications, but rather the opportunity to learn new software and gain experience, which is vital for career progression
Work-life balance

Cons

We felt disengaged from the company as a whole: that was good in some ways, but not so in others.

Salary didn't always reflect the success of the company: there were a lot of salary freezes, office and team changes and overall cutbacks during the bleak times and things didn't really change after new contract wins and improved market conditions. Similarly, as one improved their skills and ended up doing more to help the company, it wouldn't show in their pay. Aside from slight cost of living increases, things didn't change between joining with considerably less experience and three years later, when I was doing a lot more specialist work.

Perks: the online scheme seemed to be designed to dissuade or at least it just targeted a particular niche (in other words, it wasn't useful at all).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work out where you are going, recruit accordingly and value your staff.

    I have been working at Tribal Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel.. Can be left to own devices for the most the time. Due to the lack of management at the office - can pretty much get away with murder.

    Cons

    No management. No training. Terrible team communication. Lots of office politics to contend with... Will happily expect staff to work until the late hours because of staffing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ actual managers.

    Continual downsizing/cutbacks have created a company with little true integrity

    I worked at Tribal Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some really interesting contracts and work.
    A pool of talented people in some areas.

    Cons

    Poor middle management. When people are promoted to positions for which they lack the necessary ability, the company do not address the fundamental problems
    No CPD (continuing professional development) despite repeated promises.
    Lack of honesty about company plans. Sudden redundancies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your staff, value them and invest in them. It will reap much greater rewards in the longer term than short-term short-sighted profits.
