    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    None, both my Recruitment Consultant and his manager totally ignored my requests not to deduce fees for their discount club. I got no response from them.

    Cons

    Money deducted for discount club even when opted out online they continued to deduct money and won't pay it back to me. My contact at REED Global Accountancy Temporaries Lancaster refused to help me sort this out.

    This situation caused the company I was working for to terminate my assignment, now I have no job. Is this what REED now does, lose people their jobs?

    Advice to Management

    Teach your staff manners and respect for all their clients not only the companies your clients work for. Staff members at Reed Global Lancaster are rude, disrespectful and aggressive towards the people who are working for your company and earning you money.

    I have been working at reed.co.uk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First impressions working in a tech role:

    - Experienced, friendly and smart people
    - Company promotes collaboration and knowledge sharing
    - Reasonably open tech stack approach
    - Events and activities to support team expertise growth, process improvements while accounting for each team preferences (e.g. agile coach team does not push scrum by the book, carefully adapts it around the team etc.)
    - Internal activities for personal development
    - Flexible hours
    - Tech and tools (in progress, still some way to get to the best of breed level)

    Other ‘hip’ bonuses:
    - Nice offices with a big canteen area (no cooking possible)
    - Shower room
    - Games and consoles

    Cons

    - Some teams have more freedom in choosing the tech stack and making architectural decisions (business constraints)

    Will re-evaluate as time goes by.
