    Current Employee - IT Consultant in Manchester, England (UK)

    Pros

    Great people and some very good projects, but only if you are willing to nag project managers till the cows come home.
    Prospects of working away from home and abroad is also a plus.
    Annual corporate events like the Logica World Cup.

    Cons

    No career progression whatsoever.
    Rubbish company for graduates who come in enthusiastic about starting out with a top bluechip company then a few months in, they leave completely disappointed.
    Too much red-tape. Before you can get training approved, you must fight with PMs and SMs all day long!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the graduate training scheme

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Manchester, England (UK)

    Pros

    Some of the technical staff are very good people: both in their technical ability and in their day to day personal relations.

    Cons

    Management with utter contempt for staff. A very unpleasant and nasty work culture. Lack of integrity. Terrible terms and conditions. No career progression. Christmas parties cancelled because of lack of money. Incredibly high turn over of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider other careers.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Manchester, England (UK)

    Pros

    Used to be brilliant place to work, but then changed from low volume high margin to high volume low margin and started a death spiral. The good technical people jumped ship years ago, leaving a weak clueless company of managers.

    Cons

    Hack work, low pay, dreadful, agressive management, rudderless disaster.
