    I have been working at Funding Circle full-time

    Pros

    Admittedly I'm a very new employee, but, coming from a failing start up to this there have been plenty of positives:
    - structured, thorough on-boarding process thanks to HR & IT
    - diligent, friendly team to work alongside, who really go above & beyond to answer all questions and do further training
    - great offices, with lots of benefits and delicious coffee

    Cons

    None so far, as I said I am new!

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it - people love to learn & feel they are continually furthering their development
