    I have been working at RandomStorm

    Pros

    Yeah it's alright I guess.

    Cons

    This one time we all thought it was a good idea to have an office cat, like a pet cat that would be the cornerstone of a comfortable place of work. We mentioned this to management only to get shot down. The same thing happened with the pet dog idea... Some valid points were raised but I feel some members of staff just didn't adopt the 'team pet' approach. To make this company better I would try to adopt an... office based cat/dog or failing that a hamster just to provide something to stroke whilst at work. It's all well and good having IT based solutions but maybe if we had an office pet (I'd call it 'ginger') then we could solve more IT issues?. Just an idea.

    Advice to Management

    Look into the therapeutic benefits of employing a cat/dog/ginger.

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

    Pros

    Leading technology, great vision for the future and enjoy working as part of a valued team. We are all busy and there is generally a good buzz within the company.

    Cons

    Being a small and fast growing company, sometimes the processes can be lacking in certain areas. I guess this is a trade off for fast growth.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to start some employee bonus schemes or share incentives to reward members of the team.

    I worked at RandomStorm full-time

    Pros

    To get your foot on the employment ladder is the only pro for working for this company. They will bleed you dry, wringing out as much as they can before being forced into rewarding your efforts.

    Cons

    No person-management skills. Profit focused. Exploits the professionalism and good will of their employees. Everything is done on the cheap. No career development or employee investment. No appreciation of the volume of work being carried out. No pension contributions until it is forced upon them by law. Employees need to fight to recover any expense claims. Employee contracts and handbook are worthless -... More benefit to an Andrex puppy (Toilet paper) Ignore requests for employee references.

    Advice to Management

    I tried offering advice, during my time there, but the owners are too engrossed in their own 'bubbles' to listen or even care. As long as people are willing to buy their products and services, to support their lifestyles then they'll carry on as they are.
