    Exciting company to work for

    Senior Recruitment Advisor (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThey have had impressive growth over the last couple of years which looks set to continue, exciting times and opportunities - must be doing something right!

    ConsIt is hard to create and hold a company culture when so many employees are working remotely on client site. Do not always feel included in what is going on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to reach out to remote staff, efforts are appreciated!

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

    A genuinely forward thinking company

    Talent Attraction (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat atmosphere and team spirit, all meetings have had an open forum element and even the most recent additions to the team are invited to share ideas. Ochre House is growing and venturing into new territories keeping work interesting.

    ConsBecause we cover so many time zones some flexibility in working hours is required but you have to expect this, fair warning was given at interview stage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going.

    Dont practice what they preach

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsInspirational leaders with huge ambition.

    ConsCompany is growing faster than its resources allow. A small company struggling transition into a large one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReinvest more money back into staff. We havent had a Christmas party in 2 years. Reinstate fringe benefits like company quiz nights and other little thank you's. We've all felt some severe penny pinching oveer the last 2 years. Allocate greater funds for off site training for individuals. Not internally designed and delivered generic training.

    At times I feel like I'm expected to deliver magic results given short time frames and poor resources. You're often expected to work late nights and perform miracles to get things done. I refuse to believe this is 'the industry we work in' its poor organisation and over stretched resources.

    Ochre House is a forward thinking, progressive and very supportive company to work for.

    Senior Recruitment Advisor (Current Employee)
    Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsI like the way Ochre House do business. Customers first, work to understand what they need and then deliver.

    ConsIt is a smaller company. Therefore it can be slower to progress, but progression does happen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure that you share information to the best potential across the many locations your employees are placed in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
