Dynamic environment with possibilities to grow professionally.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Bucharest (Romania)

I have been working at Endava full-time for more than a year

ProsWorking at Endava can be an interesting experience. There are lots of people that came from other companies, hence there are high chances to learn from others and serve as an example in the same time. Nice offices, they conduct trainings, certifications and extra activities, like sports, hangouts. Good opportunity to evolve.

ConsSome people could act more professionally and some could be more involved in their work. The communication between management and rest could be better. They could be better organized and pay more attention to the human side. Salaries could be higher in regards to the quality and amount of work. No difference made between the hard working and lazier ones.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your people nicer and communicate more with them. Promote the hard working ones. Be more effective when it comes to project & resource management. Act more professionally. Show respect to your people, listen their complains and find practical solutions to solve them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Lots of opportunities to grow when working in the right project

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
Cluj-Napoca (Romania)

I worked at Endava full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou get to work in challenging environments, with a lot of business related knowledge to be acquired.
A lot of opportunities to grow your career and to learn a lot, both technically and as soft skills.

ConsWorking in the financial sector you might get to work with more antique technologies. Sometimes it matters a lot for which client you work to pass over politics in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep up promises - new offices, new projects.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall a good experience, but you should watch your back

Senior Software Tester (Current Employee)

I have been working at Endava full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVarious projects with various technologies - good thing for career development

ConsIndividuals are not valued if they don;t have a friend in higher management. Smoking & hanging around with guys from higher management is good for career (or at least it was)

Nice, but short

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Endava full-time for more than a year

Pros- interesting projects ( if you're lucky to get one of the interesting ones)
- most coworkers are helpful and nice
- good place to learn and grow
- good relaxation activities
- very good team cohesion ( does not include management)

Cons- way too many people in management structure
- job insecurity ( once the project you have been hired for finishes you might find yourself sitting doing nothing for a long while )
- improper communication between management and team
- open space ( colleagues opinions of you , even those you don't know , might be taken into consideration on your evaluation, effectively allowing a group of people to stump your career advancement permanently or even get you fired )
- employees expected to do overtime and are frowned upon if respecting exactly the work schedule .

Advice to Senior Management- thin out the command structure, too many bosses for too few people
- focus more on the person and the skills of the person , not try to apply the company template over them
- appreciate the employees, communicate with them more, understand them and work with them, not above them
- office "gossip" or "whispers" should be reprimanded swiftly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
