    Bringing many companies and products together into a modern group and workplace. Not everything is perfect, but there is such a driven team to transform and achieve success - really dynamic place to work

    Pros

    As soon as I walked in for my interview, I felt welcome and valued. The atmosphere and building itself is a wonderful, it is so relaxing but motivating. Outside there is a pond and quite area to sit and have lunch. The management are so supportive and the company itself has a great culture and fantastic values. The benefits are superior to anything I have incountered before and it really gives an insensitive to... become the best you can be. I actually love going to work in the morning. With the company growing and a really great forecast I intend to be here for as long as I possibly can 😊.

    I have been working at IRIS Software Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Am Fairky new to the business but it’s clear to see it’s a fast-paced and fun place to work. The people are great and I know there are lots of new initiatives in progress. The new values have had a really positive effect in my team and there is lots of scope for development and training despite what I’d read on here beforehand. In my short time here you can already see that things are changing for the good with the... new senior management team and although there’s lots more to do you can see the positive impact it’s having already. I think people just want it happen faster ? Good benefits & salary with good prospects if you work hard so a good time to come in and make your mark! and I like the free fresh fruit and team social events !

    Cons

    So much happening that’s it’s hard to know what’s going on in the business for some but they know this and are addressing it - I see there is a new website now and a new intranet in the making which will help.

    Advice to Management

    Listening to staff has paid off so keep the comms and monthly meetings coming. They are really upbeat so don’t lose momentum! Things are definitely looking up!!!!
