    I have been working at Leyton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Going to the pub on a friday

    Cons

    Do not be fooled by promises.This place is shockingly poor for staff moral. Most of these 5 stars reviews are written by management or staff being told to. Most people leave asap. Drugs, alcohol, uncaring staff, people being promoted too fast, favoratism, prizes and promotions go to managers favoraties, no strucutre its like a wild west atmosphere were anything goes. In the past 6 months its like everyone... with decent humanity has left. Sales side is a cesspit. Consultancy side is full of people who have been ther for years and think they ar better than you ( to be fair the neweer guys arent as bad)

    Advice to Management

    Improve the culture dramatically or more and more will leave. Do not brush toxic culture under the carpet.

    I have been working at Leyton full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really great culture where hard work is rewarded and success is really pushed. Fantastic development culture and real investments into graduates and building them up as professionals. Really good incentives and clear objective to work too.

    Cons

    Nothing but not great if you don't want to work hard or have ambitions for a strong career, this isn't the kind of place for people that want an easy job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on building people up and looking forward!

    I worked at Leyton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good banter between a handful of staff.

    Cons

    Working at Leyton was by far the worst job I have ever had. There were several occasions of disgusting behaviour from management ranging from drug use in the office, lying and spreading rumours about staff, scaremongering and general bullying. -The company has a recruitment day every other month hiring around 10 people at a time with the majority leaving within a few months, some only stay a couple of weeks.... Stories of previous sexual assault and HR enquires are made out as a joke rather than looked on as a serious problem. A handfull of staff were fantastic however I understand that they have all left over the space of a few months. All roles involve late hours, being asked to come in hours early with no extra pay (because it is "part of the job") and staff being fired left right and centre because they' don't make the cut '.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your staff as if they are disposible. Stop hiring poor management staff and make an attempt at raising staff morale rather than scaremongering.
