    Pros

    Every first friday of the month the whole company has drinks at the office.
    We have a pool table and wii/ps3 in the offices for all to use.
    Free Fresh fruit and fresh coffee for all.
    highly regarded staff attitude for pulling together int eh same direction.
    Everyone is friendlyand it;s a great atmosphere to worki n.

    Cons

    Software company that is growing so it;s hasn;t got the opportunities for career progression that other larger companies offer. his is just because the company is small in comparison still.
    A lot of reviews on this site state this but I think it;s a good thing because if the company too large you lose the individuality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees brilliantly. Don't stop respecting their intelligence and lsiten to them every chance you have. Keep it up.

    I worked at IG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company benefits, employees are really valued as individuals. Occasional bottle of bubble when the business is doing exceptionally well, hub drinks every month where there is a variety of wines, beer and nibbles. Top bosses are seen around the office and always up for conversation. The technology around the company is top class, the office is modern and has great kitchen spaces. Coffee, milk is provided which is a massive plus. Daily fruit, team leaders very down to earth.

    Cons

    There are no cons i can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing whatever you are doing. More opportunities for graduates would be excellent.

    Pros

    Developers have freedom and enough control to get the job done.
    The environment is informal, but seems to work.

    Cons

    Managers seem to bear quite a burden. It can make it hard to get their time or make friends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Few companies allow this structure and you benefit from it!

    I worked at IG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Successful company, interesting projects and software, decent coworkers and staff, great venue and good benefits (gym etc).

    Cons

    Management is not too technically skilled and does not understand requirements from IT perspective, mostly opposes any change to routine

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who has previously worked in a technical role.

    I have been working at IG full-time

    Pros

    It is unlike any other company I have worked for, theres no sense of hierarchy, the team are all treated the same. IG put a lot of effort into ensuring the company mingles, they do this by setting up monthly events in the office.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are long and you can be expected to work late, but personally have felt that its always made up to you in some way.

    Advice to Management

    Regular catch ups would be appreciated

    I have been working at IG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sharp people, good benefits, interesting technology. There is a very definite plan for the future, and a lot of investment in the right staff and tools in order to get there in good order. A real 'can do' attitude is around the place, with good morale. Management doors are always open, they are always receptive to new ideas.

    Cons

    The established staff can be wary of new employees, and therefore understandably slow or hesitant to fully bring in or share hard-won information.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace new technology, try to actually push through the changes.
