    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    fun colleagues, laid-back environment, and great social activities

    Cons

    The work sometimes is so monotonous and menial. Expanding into new markets is great but seriously, their approach gives you no room for your own creativity and input. All they care about is link building and chasing people like anything for it - although it should be done, it's not the end all be all. Why hire talented and educated people to do such work? I have worked in several companies before and never have I come across such type of work. I also don't see much growth within the co. Overall verdict is - it's boring!

  3. "Perfect if you want to work for a bully/micromanaging CEO for little reward"

    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    - fairly international team
    - new office
    - clever colleagues
    - supportive senior management team
    - Adzuna Academy initiative (monthly workshop with an external or internal speaker)

    Cons

    - CEO: micromanager; bully
    - hardly any benefits. Not competitive AT ALL compared to other tech companies in London
    - low salaries
    - austerity budget for everything (the CEO even comments on how much milk you put in your cereal, so be careful)

    Advice to Management

    Well done keeping this team together. You are doing some great things despite being shut down by the CEO.

    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    - diverse team
    - nice office
    - clever, friendly people
    - great senior management team

    Cons

    - below-market salaries
    - near to zero investment in employees
    - control-freak CEO making everyone tiptoe around. He simply doesn't trust anyone regardless of their seniority and wants to make the final call on every single matter - from what kind of milk the company should be buying to allowing a new £500 marketing test

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work guys - I admire how you suck it up despite your frustration and resentment for the CEO, because you drive the company forward and protect your teams.
