    I have been working at Reevoo

    Pros

    Extremely young and friendly environment, everyone gets around the office with scooters, it's really cool. They give you real responsibilities from the very beginning. Learnt how to use SQL here which was very useful.Made me very marketable after I completed my internship. learnt many different skills.
    Badminton at lunch time twice a week. A local Gym you could use at lunch time which is subsidized by Reevoo.

    Cons

    Pay - £600 a month, very hard to survive on especially because of travel costs, depending on where you live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the intern know how much they are getting paid before you employ them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust people and stop the backstabbing. You are losing your USP. This company needs investment to improve everything. Treat this as a stopgap to a decent job elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell up or move out. People leave poor managers not companies.

    this is a great little brand but is going nowhere.

    Too much politics to get anything done. Not enough investment in staff.

    I worked at Reevoo full-time

    Pros

    Nice office facilities. Established product.

    Cons

    There's a lot of emphasis on bonus structures which seems to incentivise some quite unhealthy decisions within quite a few teams.

    It seems like ever other day a new 'manager' seems to get hired. You can't swing a cat without bumping into a manager of some sort.

    Every other week it's someones farewell party.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Everything's ok until they squeal" is a saying that is constantly heard at Reevoo. It centres on the fact that a vast majority of teams are despicably under staffed and yet the goal posts keep on being moved ever higher.

    Don't wait for your staff to squeal as by that point they're either ready to quit or suffering severe health issues.

    I worked at Reevoo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reevoo has historically been a great place to work, with a real feeling that everyone was pulling together. Management was flat and there was a real focus on making sure employees were improving their performance and growing professionally. However, the company itself wasn't very successful.
    After a sticky period (see below), the company got back on the right track, but I don't know if things are back to being great.

    Cons

    After a period of rapid growth, the atmosphere of the company changed considerably. New people in upper management, entirely new teams and dramatically increased manpower in other teams meant that the company fragmented into different sub-cultures. This led to tensions between teams and an unhappy working environment. Worse yet, upper management seemed either unaware or unwilling to act to change this. 'Playing politics' became an issue, with some teams eventually becoming unable to work with each other.
    Eventually, people realised that things needed to change, and some effort was put into making the company a good place to work again, and some of the more disruptive and negative new hires left

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the temperature of the company: since you pay below market wage for many roles, you need to make Reevoo an awesome place to work to keep attracting talent. Be more proactive in responding to problems with team cohesion or internal strife.

    Pros

    Good culture with everyone very accessible, regardless of their level. Everyone knows the company exists to help consumers make better informed choices. Somehow we always manage to recruit likeable people who are dedicated to our clients. Very fast growing company which creates opportunity for those who want it. Easily the best product/service in the industry.

    Cons

    Outgrown the current office in a building that isn't exactly attractive....office move in less than 2 months though. The speed of growth creates issues at times.

    Pros

    Great team, this is a big one. Reevoo has grown from a few smart people in a room, to loads of smart people in a few rooms, and all of them give a massive sit about what we are doing.

    Management generally have my faith, and not just blind faith. I see them making tough calls every day, and it's very rare that a bad call is made. Besides, I feel I can intervene and question where things don't seem right, and know that my concerns are heard.

    Cons

    We're in a transition period, growing from a small tightly knit group, to a company large enough that just having motivated, smart, people around is no longer enough. It's been rocky of late, but we're coming out the other side, and it's looking bright.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to keep stamping down on business speak nonsense. It's starting to creep in again.
