    Pros

    Editing the obligatory glass door review they make us do under their watchful eye - boo!

    Cons

    Lots and lots of cons. I am of the opinion that this place is rubbish. Boo to you sir.

    Advice to Management

    In my professional opinion, the aforementioned rubbishness warrants a 1 star review. The rubbishness and all the further implications thereof are indicative of a poisonous company culture and a level or rubbish which I deem quite dissatisfactory.
    Suggested actions for management:
    1. A/B testing - be halfway decent to some members of the company. Do they consider it less rubbish? Good job! Roll it out!
    2. Employee Autonomy and Accountability - some measure of this would go a long way to less rubbishness
    3. Metrica and Cortex - particularly rubbish to work in. Probably worth fixing. (It'll be less rubbish).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB).

    Interview

    I interviewed twice for the company. First time round the Senior Management were unsure I was the right fit for the company, my motivations weren't aligned to what they were looking for.
    After securing myself a role in recruitment for an well known recruitment firm one of the Directors got back in contact and re interviewed me 8 months later. This time I was successful having proved I had the right business acumen for the role.
