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

Pros

Good Salary, Free Tea & Coffee, flexible working hours.

Cons

Management highly inexperienced! Really glitchy products! They tend to simply "add a new bit on" which should hopefully mask the broken parts, I think there software has more versions than I do hot dinners!!

Developers living in the stone age! QA is almost none existent!!

Advice to Management

Listen to staff more! Seek advice when needed and start looking further afield when developing software, all of it needs a fresh approach! Excellent development teams scattered around Tribal but terrible managers who don't utilize them to the full extent!

    I worked at Tribal Group part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great products, strong reputation and brand which gets you through the door of clients'.

    Cons

    Struggled to capitalize on all intellectual capital of the companies it bought or to leverage off the range of different relationships. Less of a tribe more of a collection of many tribes. Left its value base behind..

    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.
