    Pros

    Company making the transition from small start up to bigger operation so plenty of scope to get involved and help set up processes.
    Great opportunity to learn a lot and take responsibility.
    Less formal structure means there's scope to have your voice heard and good ideas get an airing.
    With offices in the UK, US and Europe, it feels more international in outlook than you might expect in a company this size.
    A lot of people have a real vision of how they want to improve the company and their enthusiasm shows.
    Excellent opportunities to train internally and externally.
    General lack of bitchiness, open communication. friendly people.

    Cons

    Company making the transition from small start up to bigger operation ;) The downside is that if you're used to process and clear hierarchy it can be a bit of a culture shock.
    Less formal structure means it takes a lot longer to get all the necessary people on board to take a final decision.
    Holiday allowance is legal minimum - which is strange because the benefits package overall is very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about holiday allowance, improve processes and infrastructure for decision making and internal comms, make decision-making responsibilities clearer

    Smart people, decent products, but upper management changes direction and seems distracted, and has wasted money

    Pros

    A smart bunch of people to work with, good ideas. Decent office environments with opportunity for advancement. Good technology and some groundbreaking work

    Cons

    Still has divisions between product groups, internal conflict. Some old fashioned ideas at the top. Tries to be too many things to too many industries, which waters down product direction. Their venture into translational medicine was a bit of a farce. Has bought companies without a decent understanding of their markets and technologies, which has cost them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn a profit, get bought, promote some of the younger smarter people and get rid of the old guard.

    I worked at ID Business Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working around core hours, good investment in staff

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Working from home policy is bent for some employees. Location is not that good if you commute by public transport.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk about what is happening more outside the company to the staff

    Somewhat dysfunctional, distant CEO, unrealistic aspirations

    Pros

    Good salary, decent offices, people are generally friendly.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, management seems to change direction after one failed project after another. Needs to either focus on core expertise or acquire expertise in different market segments, not try to straddle the fence.
