No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Helpful and friendly people (mostly anyway)
Global contracts with high potential
Flexible working hours
Attempting some agile methods
Office newly refurbed
Free tea and coffee

Cons

Software is dated
Although there are a few good developers, innovation is stifled by those in charge.
Very much a software hacking company with few industry standard patterns or methods used. It's all about bolting on some new half baked features and shoving it out the door.
Lip service is as much attention as testing is given.
Senior devs fear change due to their lack of knowledge and experience outside of tribal.
They need to drag themselves into this decade and put more focus around quality.
Management are very inexperienced and run around like headless chickens (literally)
Much more agile methods are needed around the software development if they are to sell themselves as "agile", it's more than just two week iterations and a daily stand up.

Advice to Management

Encourage new ideas, there are developers with good experience on the floor.
Learn more about the software development cycle.
Place more emphasis on quality and a little less on new half cooked features.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Colleagues were welcoming, supportive and always willing to give advice to projects, even if not personally invovled.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the Company has gone through many changes over the past few years, leading to dissatisfaction, unease and unrest amongst employees. Communication from the top down was poor, suggestive of a sentiment that the employees were merely commodities to be traded for the best possible share yield.

    Advice to Management

    Decide on your plan and stick to it; don't keep changing the goalposts for people.

    Manageent should strive to help the new comers specially when they do not have experience of working in this sector.
