    Pros

    Its in London... which has opportunities

    Lacking focus and direction, constant distractions with licencing issues and similar external negative press. Tech is unproven and not widely used. Changing overall direction.

    Great company culture, but lots of change

    Pros

    Great pastoral care. Good work-life balance. Lively, tolerant culture. Smart, creative people. The work is interesting, and the company goals are fascinating.

    Cons

    Pivots are common. You might have to drop all the work that you just completed, to great praise, because the company shifted direction again. Management are not great at communicating change to the company - they really try, but often don't get the messaging right. However, they seem to have their hearts in the right place,

    Scaled too fast without product market fit

    May 27, 2022 - Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Get to work with smart engineers on hard problems. Can be good work-life balance, depending on the team.

    Cons

    The hard problems you work on don't necessarily need solving - the company scaled too fast without product-market fit. Pivoting a 1000 people+ company isn't easy. There is a culture of telling people what they want to hear.

    Nice people, good perks but severe growing pains

    Pros

    Company values and soft skills are very important to Improbable, which is really great to see. Feedback is at the heart of it. Great merch, perks and salary.

    Cons

    They seem to be throwing money at everything which is a bit worrying. Also, not keeping track of spending is a very worrying trend! More people does not mean faster output! Roles and responsibilities is a mess! L&D is limited due to being maxed out all of the time.

    Purpose-driven company with a great culture

    Feb 5, 2022 - Senior Swe in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This place is packed with smart people - but what's unusual (esp among smart people) is a) how careful they are to promote a good, healthy culture b) the levels of humility on display and c) the work/life balance.

    Cons

    Strategic direction changes a fair bit (not always in their control) so there are stressful times when you're not sure where the company's headed or how your role fits in.
