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

Pros

support team works well together - mostly

Cons

company ethos is poor - the managing director's opinion is "it's my way or the highway", he micro-manages and runs the company by ensuring his employees fear him, there are no company benefits - although they cite Cycle to Work as a benefit; their HR person is an accounts clerk and has no HR training or knowledge of employment law practices; they have had 5 Support Managers in 5 years and, no, they did not all leave because of pregnancy (as they will tell you); Support must work 1 in 4 24/7 on-call (for no recompense) and if you miss a call because of a legitimate reason (driving, for example) you are reprimanded; they pay c5k below market rate; the department teams do not work closely together due to pressures from the MD - there is a blame culture; they ran at a loss 2011 and will do 2012; it's a niche market so they have an advantage but will never be able to grow because of their culture; webcams have been installed in all office spaces NOT for security purposes but to monitor "time at desk" - I know this because the MD told me

Advice to Management

get bought out by Shell or Exxon, for the sake of your customers

    Pros

    EBITS has been working hard developing its next generation product.

    The product has become much more refined and our customers are happy. The culture and environment is good and massive efforts have clearly been made to improve staff moral.

    The past two years has also seen the introduction of new experienced management in key areas and massive investment has been made in the company Infrastructure.

    Many exiting projects and prospects are on the horizon for EBITS in 2017 and I look forward to being part of it!

    Cons

    Pressure can be high at times but that is only down to the management and staffs commitment to succeed. although at the end of the day any good company should have a bit of pressure
