    Good working environment

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsEncouraged to learn and do things on my own. My manager walks the talk and I can get good support from him. I am surrounded by many experts and the people that I work with are really friendly.

    ConsAs for every big companies the politics can be a challenge; still, a good way to learn diplomatics and sometimes funny to observe the struggle for power :).

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould focus more on the team dynamics and to reduce the political fights.

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

    Rewarding but hard work

    Sales Advisor (Former Employee)

    ProsGood experience for a future career.
    Good salary.
    Lots of progress reviews.
    Other colleagues are generally quite supportive.

    ConsNot enough training.
    Targets can be unrealistic and not customer focussed.
    Some managers can be hard task masters when it comes to targets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some more flexibility with targets i.e if someone is really good at exceeding one target but not so good at another take the fact that they have exceeded one into account.
    Ensure that targets do not get into the way of helping customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing bonus, fantastic place to work just keep an eye on targets

    Outbound Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)

    ProsCommission is amazing!! some months i can make double my salary so that was pretty awesome. Staff who work there go through extensive interviewing so generally everyone is pretty cool. People are fun to talk to on the fun. Management are generally pretty cool.

    ConsAssistant managers are power hungry, they really like letting you know they're higher than you. Targets are constantly used to kick people out the company. They always get increased.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being idiots and employing awful ATL's (assistant team leaders).

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

    Mobile first, but no idea about online

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

    ProsRecognisable brand
    Relatively good salary and perks
    Subsidised mobile phone

    An overall friendly environment where a bit of hardwork and struggle is required and also a bit of creativity.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Bristol, England (UK)

    ProsA leading company with Friendly working environment
    Often uses advanced technology
    Awesome and intresting projects
    Vey talented technical team in bristol.

    Cons-uncertainity of the jobs
    -Management and communication with the staff is not upto the mark
    -slow organization leading to delay in projects

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunicate more with the individuals
    Please sort out pay/ bonus differences like a senior developer & good performer gets less than a junior developer with not so great performace.
    Decrease outsourcing and short term contractors

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Challenging working environment. Slow time to action. Lots of politics.

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsGood location, nice office environment. Some very talented and skilled people in London office.

    ConsLots of beurocracy. Little autonomy given, even to some very senior people within the organisation. Need to sell each project in to lots of different stakeholders. Slow time to action most things, meaning delays in projects and frustrations all around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDrive change management to effect change on time to market processes and procedures. Allow more autonomy to staff to get the job done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
