I worked at Frontier Software full-time (More than 5 years)
Frontier Software really care about their employee's and offer strong opportunities for development and growth. Like any technology company the pace is fast and changing with a focus on customer satisfaction and product development.
Head office needs were sometimes given a higher importance than those in other branches requiring escalation to ensure action was directed towards resolving regional requirements.
Advice to Management
Ensure that you work hard to help other regions outside head office and that the employees in those regions feel valued for their contribution.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Frontier Software (Guildford, England (UK)) in January 2017.
Arranged through external recruitment company. This was all good. Interviewed by one person only which I didn't think was appropriate or professional . He admitted he was no good at interviews, a bad start, this made me question the professional ability of the company.He'd also only ever worked for this one company, not much experience all round. He then proceeded to talk and talk and talk...so boring. He asked me nothing about my experiences just went on about the company. I had to then do a technical test, not particularly difficult but didn't reflect my extensive experience. After this more talking by the interviewer. After two hours I was so bored I couldn't wait to escape. He finally asked if I had any questions, not likely, I didn't want him to get another chance to talk endlessly about nothing, so I said no grabbed my coat and ran away...needless to say I didn't get the job being told I didn't ask any questions...my was that a lucky escape....what a complete waste of time. I'm sure if the MD knew how bad this guy was at trying to sell his company he might have better luck recruiting staff.
