    I worked at 2e2 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has ceased trading having borrowed beyond its means. This is a pro because it means no one can be harmed by it any more.

    Cons

    2e2 was operated by inarticulate, graceless wide boys, to whom money was the only reality. Despite this, they still failed to managed it properly and made hundreds of employees unemployed overnight when it ran out.

    Advice to Management

    You have failed. Give up. Don't try again.

    I worked at 2e2 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamic job, a lot of tech opportunities, training, fantastic projects

    Cons

    No cons whatsoever, maybe some small issues but all were resolved

  3. "Great workers, Poor Directors"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Most of the people who worked there have gone on to work in very senior positions of very successful companies

    Cons

    2e2 failed because of the sell now worry about if we can implement it later approach. On more than one occasion solutions were sold without any idea of how they could be achieved

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your mistakes and do not cost anyone else their jobs. Lots of people were hit hard by the errors at 2e2 and I hope it never happens again.

    I worked at 2e2 full-time

    Pros

    Staff we dedicated and hard working often put into very difficult positions with the clients. The staff kept this business alive 2 years after it should have gone under. Worst place I have ever worked

    Cons

    Poor Pay, poor senior management team, terrible acquisitions, poor decisions, terrible staff retention, no benefits

    I worked at 2e2 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, it was a complete shambles!

    Cons

    Totally shoddy setup, HR sat in an ivory tower. Some management promoted from the ranks without any experience, offering little support. No one had a clue to the big picture! No one knew who did what, sales guys sold stuff, but never documented exactly what they sold. No documentation was in SharePoint Hell! Worst place I have ever worked!

    Advice to Management

    Money does not look after itself! Don`t Spend Spend Spend! You should be ashamed!

    Colleagues you work with because in times of stress you bond closer.

    Multiple redundancies each year, shows how incompetent the management team are.

    Find another career.

    Pros

    some really great people and opportunities. excellent clients and has set up a lot of people in the IT industry.

    Cons

    2e2 was built by acquisitions and whilst the high level strategy was great - day to day integration of the new businesses left a lot to be desired. staff were not treated well in general especially at the end.

    Advice to Management

    greed got the better of them
