    Pros

    For technologists it's a great place to work. Get to work on leading edge projects. Work-life balance is very good and it's an informal working environment.

    The location is not great. The choices for food, drink & social in the area are pretty poor. Quality of the staff canteen is pretty poor too!

    Pros

    The work, some really cool industry leading projects that are at the forefront of trading and online sales and everyday presents a new challange, although sometime this can be a problem as the rate of change throughout the company is unbeleiveable.

    Cons

    My manager, the politics throughout the business, pay is low by comparison to other similar companies, there is a lack of reward for a job well done, the rate of change

    Pros

    Fast pace and great people. Good benefits

    Company is all about profits and pay doesn't reflect role. Many employees in our department are paid at 70% of market rate which is apparently acceptable
