    A rough start for a new development department

    Developer (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsInstead of using established technologies like Ruby on Rails development is one big experiment, with everything being made from scratch on top of Python/Django. There's also a lot of experimentation with development processes. This is a lot of fun sometimes, and quite valuable learning experience, even if the results aren't very impressive. Developers are better than average.

    ConsLow time/place flexibility. GCap got its development department very recently, so it's still a huge mess, with everything changing all the time. Management isn't very good, they don't seem to have a clear idea of where the whole thing is heading, and communication isn't working too well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should really embrace agile, not do a half-hearted hybrid of agile and waterfall.

    Not the worst, but not the best

    Breakfast Presenter (Current Employee) Milton Keynes, England (UK)

    ProsIf you want to get into radio, you have to. i suppose they did offer some decent training, once a year, for two days! Radio is a harsh industry and all Gcap did was to reflect this. There's no sense that you are valued unless your listener figures are kicking butt. In case you think this os sour grapes, I have won two sony awards and my listener figures were perfectly good. The way they treat people at contract time would have a union rep spitting feathers! Ah well, that's radio for you. I would suggest that you enter Gcap woth your wits about you and don't expect to be nurtured.

    ConsSelf employed, you're on your own. No holiday pay, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about the meaning of the phrase 'Human Resource'

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
