    Pros

    Very meritocratic, lots of diversity, caliber of colleagues, good recognition, and always caring about the individuals

    Cons

    Sometimes too much of a family mindset
    Since they sold it to Kit Digital, now Piksel everything started to go downhill, no most of the great people there have left

    Enjoyed Challenges, Excellent Tech Environment but poor career progression

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Lead Developer  in  London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Lead Developer in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with many talented developers & architects, enjoyed the challenges, made good friends.
    Wider exposure to technologies & can gain experience working for large broadcasting companies
    Flexible timing with 10-4 in office being mandatory.

    Cons

    Poor working environment, very little space to sit and do work in London Office
    Poor career progression
    Wages are very average considering the work & travel one has to do depending on project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People needs to be recognised and promoted based on their talent, skills, contribution & feedback. Please don't wait years and years to promote someone.
    Please improve working environment as there is hardly any space left for movement in London Office.

    not a bad place to work if you're only looking to tread water

    Current Employee - Network Engineer  in  York, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Network Engineer in York, England (UK)

    Pros

    There is a lot of interesting technology to work with, and a reasonable scope to take ownership of projects and be creative if you can find the headroom.

    The atmosphere among the staff is friendly, and people are generally very helpful.

    Cons

    The support teams are utterly bogged down in a swamp of misguided and inconsistent service management processes, along with applications to support them that are not fit for purpose. For this reason it often feels as though you are working against the company rather than for them!

    On call is often brutal, with false alerts abound, and there is no technical aspect to the 24/7 teams to help filter out the garbage.

    Poor documentation and poorly designed hosting solutions by people clearly out fo their depth make life more difficult than neccessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire somebody from a huge service management company who has real service management experience, knows what governence is all about. Promote and nourish talent rather than 'yes men' before you discover that when the proverbial hits the fan you're escalating into a team of process monkeys!

    Excellent technical environment

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior UNIX Administrator  in  York, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Senior UNIX Administrator in York, England (UK)

    Pros

    Extremely good technical environment in which to work - colleagues are excellent and there is a lot of knowledge and experience passed around the office. There is praise from Senior Management for achievement and putting in the extra effort to meet customer needs.

    Cons

    Working hours are often very long, but there is a relatively long standard working week for the UK, which means that even in quiet times, there is a requirement to be in the office. Parking is also an issue. On occasion, company procedures reveal the fact that the company has recently experienced very fast growth from a small company, but the procedures have not yet caught up to reflect this. Some of the packages are still based around a young workforce, so no health scheme, although there is a pension and death in service package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a shorter working week - when work is required, people will put the hours in, but when there is a quiet period, people would feel it easier to catch up on home life.

  6.  

    A good company with motivated and able staff, but struggling to meet some of the challenges caused by its recent growth.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Developer  in  York, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Developer in York, England (UK)

    Pros

    The financial side of things is incredibly well run. Recruitment is done carefully and you won't find many people who are not good at what they have been hired to do.

    Cons

    Sometimes people seem to be promoted based on their percieved technical skills and/or willingness to put in overtime, rather than their suitability for a new role. We have several middle managers who are dedicated and technically very good, but they may not be well suited to managing others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider providing more management training to people who have been promoted into management posts from technical roles within the company.
