      Pros

      - Companies within K3, when left alone feel more productive. - Great People - Plenty of the Country to see.

      Cons

      - No Progression - Non Existent Pay Increases. Yet have budgets for more staff but won't recruit as they'll happy watch you struggle for months.. - Get used to be seen as a % and not as a value member of the team. - No direction at all from Owners. One Minute will say its this direction, and then once it fails, go back to what long term members of staff been saying for a while. - HR honestly don't care. Won't understand personal circumstances or assist in Injuries caused from work. - Will be fed rubbish to make you stay regarding progression. Then when you ask for it, no budget or your team is stripped down to the bare minimum. - They won't recruit until the team is massively struggling for months as they only look at your Chargeability but won't understand Non Charge can drain staff.

      Good Skills Growth - No Salary Growth Nor Stability

      May 25, 2021 - Developer in Didcot, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Colleagues are great, I've had great experiences with all the people I have worked with. Other developers are friendly and happy to help - Team managers are great, understanding and supportive - No expectation to take work home or do extra hours unpaid - No unreasonable pressure - Tech stack and product is quite broad and offers some good learning opportunities for a Developer - Other developers are experienced and willing to share their knowledge

      Cons

      - Salary is below standard, no raises for 2 years and most colleagues informed me that they hadn't received a raise in up to 5 years at the company. - Top-level management are constantly playing musical chairs, we frequently receive emails that X senior manager is leaving and is being replaced with Y. Direction has been very inconsistent. - K3 suffered greatly during COVID, many redundancies created a feeling of job insecurity - worsened by a recent restructure with vague details on overall job losses. - Teams are very isolated and siloed, with developers and functions split into different teams with very little knowledge or skill-sharing. K3 has been trying to solve this but there is still much to be done. - Due to the siloed nature it can often feel like there is a divide between the teams. Rather than working towards a common goal managers tend to look out for their own teams and responsibilities. - Several high-level developers have left recently, a severe 'Brain Drain' has been ongoing for the best part of a year. Developers from different teams are being pulled in to patch-up the core teams, but without any of the development or design knowledge from the developers who initially created the projects.

      Great place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I’ve met some of the most talented people ever during my time at K3. It’s also given me the opportunity for both lateral and upward career development. And, it really is inspiring to be exposed to the creative and innovative our solutions and applications our employees create. The CEO truly cares about each individual, welcomes creativity, and leads by example.

      Cons

      There are no cons to this company

      Simplify, focus, and care to unlock potential

      Jun 30, 2020 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are skilled, friendly colleagues across different roles and countries. Within teams, there are some good managers and a sense of camaraderie. Flexible work arrangements. K3 has acquired many businesses, mainly in retail and manufacturing tech, over the years. There is plenty of variety in its products and services, so you'll probably find something there to fit your own skills and career preferences. Even though it's been through some tough times, there is still potential and good ideas amongst the people and solutions at K3.

      Cons

      It can feel like everything is over complicated and slow moving. There's been a theme of change for several years but the business could still do with picking just a few things to excel at. It's diluted and not good enough (yet) at any one thing. Top down communication and leadership can also feel distant and clinical. Recent bad experiences with handling of redundancies really brought this to light.

      One step back two steps forward

      Jun 30, 2020 - Regional Sales Manager in Waalwijk

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      K3 is an international company where you work with colleagues all over the world. Within this collaboration you can work independently and you get the opportunity to take your own responsibility.

      Cons

      K3 is in transition. Has taken over many companies in the last 10 years. And must be harmonized. This does go with one step back and two forward. So you will have to be patient and accept that not everything is optimally arranged

      Cons

      The journey that the business is on requires a lot of change which has the potential to cause fatigue amongst teams/individuals

      All the right ingredients

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      K3 has many strengths. I feel incredibly supported to be able to deliver in a creative environment and I'm empowered to make decisions . Over the last 12 months there has been a real change which has led to K3 to become a more professional and collaborative organisation. K3 now has clear focus and objectives which are communicated well throughout the organisation - there is still work to be done - but it does feel like we are on the right track. K3 offers genuine flexibility to all its employees

      Cons

      Some of the benefits aren't as good as the industry standards.

      Management have no clue and destroyed the business

      Apr 24, 2020 - Technical Support Consultant in Didcot, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The best, most hard working, dedicated, and skilled people you will find in the Dynamics world. Was able to learn from others and given the opportunity to grow and progress your career.

      Cons

      So many to list here. Poor Senior Management. What was once a successful Business was destroyed by the Board of Directors and the vision of the CEO. Simply no clue of the Dynamics business. Stopped any form of recruitment or investment in the business and it's employees and was set out to fail when the new CEO was appointed. Customers therefore suffered from lack of resource and caused many to jump to other partners. Strongly advise against working for K3. When times get tough they will throw you into the wind with no care in the world. You are not seen as a person just a number that can be discarded.

      Great colleagues, but very poor management of the company

      Apr 24, 2020 - Support Consultant in Didcot, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Every single person whom I have worked with at K3 have been exceptionally good & knowledgeable. Good customer base with exciting opportunities/problems to work with, which definitely help improving my skillset.

      Cons

      The senior management of the company had been terrible, especially the CEO. They do not/have not valued employees and the skills they bring to the table. This was very apparent in the sheer lack of interest they displayed to interact & communicate with the teams in Didcot.
