    Poor management in place who lack people management skills and day to day management skills of teams, not much interaction between people, very segregated for an office of 50 in Dublin, huge amount of politics for such a small company, lacks ambition to grow and they are happy to have 1 or 2 sales a year, very poor training for new starters.

    Descent holiday allowance & benefits package
    Great opportunities to learn & develop your career experience

    The company has gone through a lot of ups & downs & seen a lot of staff leave over the past few years - something which should hopefully be behind it now.

    I worked at Information Mosaic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. The company will help you grow your career path.
    2. You will be given alot of responsibility, sometimes outside of your core role, enabling you to learn new skills / competencies.
    3. You will make alot of friends as the social side of the company is great.
    4. Quite flexible / accommodating working hours.
    5. Good benefits (healthcare, pension, bike to work scheme, laptop, phone (if your role demands it)
    6. Central office location.
    7. Opportunity to travel to client sites all over the world.
    8. The business and technical knowledge throughout the company is strong and you can learn alot.

    Cons

    1. Non-competitive salaries. Unless you are top level management, or a long-term employee, you will not be paid well compared to the rest of the market.
    2. No bonus structure. No accountability for bad work. This has resulted in a less motivated workforce.
    3. Objectives, one to one manager involvement, salary reviews & promotions are dis-organised, inconsistent and generally haphazard.
    4. Very little innovation & creativity with respect to software development. There is no R&D. Development culture is reactive and unmotivated rather than pro-active and enthusiastic.
    5. Senior Management proved to be a resistant and destructive with respect to some decisions (e.g. HR initiatives, marketing, UX re-design) while reckless and naive with others (e.g. financials, scaling the business too aggressively, communicating to employees).
    6. The business model is flawed. There is too much work for too little employees and not enough revenue.
    7. Many resources and functions within the business have been migrated to a newer office in India. While this has helped with short-term needs such as reduced cost, increased business knowledge and APAC market coverage, the effects have proved more negative long-term. Product quality, team collaboration and overall company morale have declined.
    8. Taking advantage of employees.

    Advice to Management

    1. Stop re-shuffling and re-using the same management team when things need to change. Remove and replace.
    2. Get further financial investment.
    3. Implement proper people management and rewards structure in an effort to improve employee attrition rate, morale & motivation.
    4. Development culture needs to change. Be innovative and don't resist change.
    5. Re-factor the core platform.
    6. Concentrate on deals that are winnable, projects that are profitable and requirements that are within the products sweet-spot.
