Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I worked at Thames Water

Pros

I am a US citizen and lived in England with a Military husband. I work for the US Federal Service but have to wait for a opening when my husband is transferred between duty stations. I worked a... Thames Water until a opening with the US government. I was hired as a temporary employee and this was my first job for a foreign company. My Supervisor and the co-workers were lovely. My duties and goals were well laid out. If I lived in the England I would work for Thames Water again.

Cons

They sprayed regularly for fleas when the office was closed but the darn fleas chewed up my ankles and legs. They didn't bother my co-workers so I assume that the fleas thought I was fresh meat. :-)

I have been working at DataSift full-time for more than a year

Pros

One of the more interesting places I've worked. Lots of opportunity to carve out what you want to do - a young company without a lot of bureaucratic overhead. If you're looking for a place with rigid... oversight, keep looking. If you're interested in somewhere you can explore new aspects of your career and learn quickly, then you'll be happy here. Work/life balance is taken seriously here. If something comes up that needs your time or attention away from work, HR and Management will support you. Managers are encouraged to keep employees from burning out, and there's always something fun going on (Friday socialization in the office, monthly outings, etc). Folks here are great about personal growth, training, and continuing education. If you want to learn something new, they'll support you. This is a big plus in my book.

Cons

The challenge of working with teams in the UK, New York and San Francisco can mean some days are long, or sometimes meetings fall at inconvenient times. Communication is email-heavy, but that beats... 7am conference calls. As the company grows, growing pains are natural. Some roles can feel like they need just a bit more than one person, but not quite two, and that's tough. Sometimes it feels like there's nothing to do, followed by a wave of far-too-much. But that's life in a startup, right?

Advice to Management

Keep the culture strong as we grow. Keep focusing on hiring the right people. Don't be afraid to take risks, but make sure we all know why you did.
