    Not a totally unpleasant place to work, but not a place to build a career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule, very little travel for most positions, fairly flat management structure. Great place for a first job after college.

    ConsLack of basic services in the US (the company is based in the UK), including HR and accounting, which leads to a very disorganized hiring and on-boarding process, problems being paid properly, and a hostile work environment with no process for remedy.

    Very slow technology development, buggy product, little opportunity for advancement, unreasonable sales and client services recommendations given the limitations of the product.

    Pays below industry rates (and offers sub-par benefits), and tends to attract the caliber of people willing to accept lower-than average salaries. Suffers from high turnover.

    The offices are run down, often unheated, have a serious rodent problem, and are too small to accommodate the current staff. No separate space for sales or offices, so the background noise is the same sales script over and over and over....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
