    Pros

    Nice breakfast, visa friendly, potential for movement

    Cons

    Non-competitive pay can lose staff unless they're otherwise happy with the quality of life. Hot desking/open office has drawbacks so you'll want some good headphones

    You can't stay here long

    May 8, 2022 - Software Engineering Team Lead 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Welcoming to inexperienced employees Very little pressure Good work life balance A good place to start your early career before going somewhere else.

    Cons

    Low pay. Writhe with incompetence at the project management level meaning lots of time is wasted on pointless tasks. Due to the lack of benefits and low pay most competent or ambitious people tend to leave after a few years. This means the company is full of people who either are just content with the easy life or inexperienced people who are junior and haven't got tired of the terrible upper management yet. The small handful of people who are highly competent and have chosen to stay are heavily relied on to keep the company alive.
