    Pros

    This is an amazing company to be at this moment. On the development department we are working on a worldwide platform being used all over the world. It's a challenge and you know you have to be developing with the greatest techniques and with the best professionals.

    The environment is amazing, people are amazing and you feel you are in the perfect place to learn and evolve. You have freedom and decision power, people trust your work and the way people develop and do their work.

    The company culture is the best I've ever seen and an example for most companies. In a small country like Portugal this is a company so great that you feel you're working at Silicon Valley.

    The benefits for me should be normal worldwide and on any company, health insurance, gym, personal learning program and a lot of goodies and surprises.

    Cons

    The pain of growing is the downside. So many people getting in the company at this tim you don't have time to keep it up and pass the company culture and values to everyone. It's gonna be a great challenge to keep the culture company.

    Senior management has to grow and delegate more on other people. Growing so fast means you have to trust even more.

    We have problems like any other company in the world, the difference is that we want to solve them.

    Advice to Management

    Defining a career path for everyone, people need to feel important and how the company will help them grow personally and professionally. Keep working on equality and respect between everyone, and together the strategy of success of becoming the best will happen.

    Pros

    Good direction on personal development
    They encourage an 'entrepreneurial' spirit. If you want to learn something or make something happen for the company you are given the freedom to do so (within reason!)
    Anyone who isn't succeeding here just isn't asking the right questions. One of the company values is 'be revolutionary'. That isn't just with the tasks you do but the attitude you bring too!
    Good bonus scheme

    Cons

    Sometimes internal communication is slow between teams

    Pros

    Farfetch is an incredible company with a truly inspiring senior management team. It's rare to be pushed and nurtured as much as they do here.

    Going from a small company to a large one, I've seen a lot of changes and I'm proud to have been a part of this company's growth.

    The benefits & bonus system is great, with everything from life insurance to corporate gym rates.

    The fashion industry is notoriously negative: Farfetch is a total exception! It is a digital company in the luxury market and is how all fashion companies should be. The power behind online fashion lies with developers and tech teams, and the Dev team at Farfetch is one of the most inspirational I've ever met.

    Cons

    When a company grows, there are always problems. Sometimes communication fails between the international offices and higher management.

    There are negative people who have been brought on in high positions and they are dampening the company values. Senior management doesn't see this as the company is so big now. 1 bad apple can ruin the whole lot.

    There are certain positions in the company that are underpaid in comparison to competitors. This needs to be addressed or they will lose people who they could nurture and keep in the company longer term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep true to your values based in tech. It's so rare to find a company as inspiring and forward thinking as you!
