    Former Employee - Digital Marketing in Nottingham, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    good social activities In the new HQ, free food. Half day Friday's is good.

    Cons

    Very political, extremely gossipy and sneaky environment. Half the employees are commercially sheltered and the other half have a strategy which changes weekly. Dictator style of management, with very little consideration for the ideas and thoughts of others (despite comments on the contrary by a select few).

    Around a third of the employees believe their opinions are better, even if purely subjective and from a "non-specialist" perspective. Almost no data-driven processes unfortunately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to employees, stop pretending. Give credit to those who achieve and trust the experts opinions. Be honest about past issues with employees.

    I worked at Romax Technology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous salary, diverse workforce, fairly good company values

    Cons

    Poor management which lacks strategic vision, does not seem to understand what it takes to make a professional product. Sometimes quite unbelievable decision making. Very long work days. Seems to have high staff turnover, some have quit their job and just walked straight out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand a little of what you are developing. Nurture employees rather than work them to the bone and give fairly unrealistic expectations.
