    I worked at STP full-time

    Pros

    - Informal work atmosphere.
    - Management looks after employees' needs - also beyond the work place for new employees just joining from abroad who need assistance settling in the UK.
    - Fair pay.
    - Good office facilities.

    Cons

    - Limited scope for advancement.
    - Translators on the "factory floor" not always shown much appreciation and often asked to do overtime/weekend work.
    - The office is "in the middle of nowhere". Not ideal for potential employees looking to move to the UK. A Southampton city centre location would make this company far more desirable to work for.
    - The rate offered to the company's freelance suppliers is on the low side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show a little more employee appreciation and offer freelance suppliers higher pay. Consider moving the office to a more accessible/desirable location.

    I have been working at STP

    Pros

    The people are very friendly and helpful, but also well trained and professional. The office is spacious with modern facilities and equipment.

    Cons

    The office is in a fairly remote location, so it's difficult to pop out and go anywhere during the lunch break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company has commendable business ethics and it is very honest and transparent in its dealings with both the staff and clients/suppliers.

    I have been working at STP

    Pros

    Flexible working options, fair salaries, informal athmosphere, casual dress code, paid overtime, generous sick pay policy, paid annual leave for up to 28 days

    Cons

    In return of their flexibility, management expects the same from their employees - evening and weekend work happen regularly. But I suppose it is fair enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Little things - such as xmas presents to staff - do matter more than you would think. A 10 quid chocolate box buys a lot of goodwill!
