    I have been working at iomart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The technical staff there are the best to work with - no egos, lots of technical knowledge and many willing to roll up their sleeves and get the job done. Pay rises for exam passes that have been agreed as targets.

    Good salary and good new MD.

    Cons

    - Quality of projects can be poor (lots of lift and shift, not so much platform transformation)

    - Work is 95% Azure, don't join if you want AWS or GCP work

    - New staff all come from one former employer, danger of cliques forming

    - Low holiday entitlement

    - High staff turnover at present due to management changes and strategy changes

    Advice to Management

    New MD is very communicative and has excellent ideas on where to take the business, but it may be too little too late as a lot of fantastic talent has already headed out of the door. Make sure cliques don't form between "old" staff and "new" staff from "that place"!

    Team Leader Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at iomart (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, there was a telephone interview with the HR department to go over basics; current role, why I was looking to move, salary expectations, and a general 5 minutes to gauge personality and suitability for culture.

    Then I attended a face to face interview with the team manager, who would be my boss. He told me about the team, what they do, and what they're looking for. He asked the obvious questions around my work history and responsibilities in previous roles. It was pretty straight forward.

    My last interview was with the Group Head of Technical Operations, and I was requested to give a presentation around effectively managing a team (leadership, coaching, motivating, etc), and the introduction of any ITIL methodologies to best improve the working processes. I enjoyed this because what was supposed to be a ten minute presentation, essentially turned into an hour and a half discussion around current ways of working, and gave me the opportunity to suggest solutions or alternative improvements. It also gave me an extra bit of insight into what the team had to deal with in an aspect, which was helpful.
