    I have been working at Roke Manor Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Romsey site (22 acre estate) is beautiful, the Gloucester office is average in terms of beauty but had the Cotswolds on its doorstep. Flexi time, along with flexi holiday (you're able to accrue up to an extra 8 days holiday in return for the hours you work over a 37.5 hour week) and the locations make it a good choice for work / life balance.

    Cons

    It's a busy work environment with the best people picking up the majority of the work means that you can't always use the flexi time / holiday options.

    It's been through a change programme but it is now starting to get better as the business is more demand focused and therefore peoples' futures are more certain.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee engagement, development and training.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roke Manor Research (Romsey, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter, after this there was a assessment centre. The assessment centre involved a morning of team based activities building objects and a presentation an introducing the business and a tour of the company site. After lunch a formal interview involved a presentation on a previous project. Questions based on the presentation were asked. Following this an interview took place with a panel of 2.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about my presentation, previous experience and project that I had worked on. Seemed friendly and a little bit informal, so I could just talk and not feel as pressured.   Answer Question
