    I have been working at Aroq full-time

    Pros

    Supportive employers who make you feel valued. Profit share scheme, lovely office, nice environment. Easy to suggest and make changes, very transparent. You can work remotely and still feel like part of a team

    Cons

    Although the office is great, it's hard to get to on public transport. It is also generally a long way to travel for a lot of remote workers - but employers are very reasonable and very flexible when it comes to their attendance

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It really is a very good place to work and no one seems unhappy in their job. You are approachable and open, which counts for a lot.

    Pros

    I am fairly new to the company and have been very impressed by the training and support I have been given. Aroq is a really friendly place to work where everyone gets involved and is encouraged to share their own ideas and suggestions and to develop themselves personally. The company really delivers on their core FIRE values; Fairness, Innovation, Respect and Enjoyment.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons to report!!

    FIRE values REALLY are important to us. I'm glad you're enjoying working at Aroq and I hope we can help you grow and develop as the company progresses.

    I have been working at Aroq full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I haven't worked at many places, but the 8 years I spent in a company where I was just another number, proved to me that I was going to enjoy working here.
    I feel valued and that my work genuinely is appreciated by everyone within the business.
    Having a lunch area with a pool table, wiff waff table and darts board is definitely a pro.

    Cons

    I can't really say there are any cons, I haven't found one yet. Maybe one con is with the building and the lack of air conditioning during the recently scorching summer, but using the desk fans provided meant it wasn't completely unbearable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, I can only see Aroq moving in the right direction and going from strength to strength. I'm looking forward to many more years within the technical team.

    Appreciate the comments on air con - we have considered it. However, we all have different temperature preferences and the air-con units just cooled everyone down or no-one. Whilst not as effective... More

    I have been working at Aroq (More than a year)

    Pros

    Genuine opportunity for candidates ideas to be heard and acted upon. Strong belief in a healthy work-life balance, backed up by flexible working hours, a health plan and early leaving on a Friday. The company has really beefed up their benefits and policies to retain new staff and attract the best talent. There is also a real commitment to learning, with a half-day a month devoted to training.

    Cons

    The head office is located about five minutes outside the town centre, so candidates with their own transport may be best placed to take advantage of the local facilities.

    Thank you for posting and mentioning some of the benefits. You forgot to mention the company library filled with the latest business books off Amazon to help with on-going learning. You're right in... More

    I have been working at Aroq full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We like challenging things and having fun. Everyone who works here is friendly and looking to be successful. We have some VERY smart people and the business is growing and launching new products. We're based in Stoke Prior, Bromsgrove which is easily commutable from Worcester, Birmingham, Redditch and Bromsgrove. We have smart new offices and will soon have a fantastic staff area to chill out in. The work/life balance is very healthy and we operate flexi-time and dress-down Fridays. Our core values are FIRE (fairness, innovation, respect and enjoyment). We have lots people who've been here from the early days and we're always looking for people with a great attitude.

    Cons

    None of course - I did say this was biased!
