    I have been working at Romax Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -A really welcoming and friendly team.
    -HR guide you through the initial few weeks of starting at Romax and are always on hand to help.
    -Romax place a huge emphasis on training staff, I have been in many training sessions that have in some cases lasted weeks at a time to educate me and develop my understanding.
    -Although Romax are a global company and work with many of the biggest company's in the world, they are still a relatively small company, which is great as you are a valued individual and meet most of the people in the UK office.
    -The UK office is new/high spec and actually built specifically to Romaxs requirements.
    -There is a fairly laid back working environment.
    -If you use your initiative you can work on your own projects which is great experience and invaluable.
    -A flat structure in place so you can speak to Senior management relatively easily.
    -Early finish on Fridays mean you can leave after lunchtime!
    -I am proud to tell people I work for such a great company and in general a professional and friendly place to work.

    Cons

    -I think communication within my department could be slightly better at times.
    -You have to pay for a parking permit (however there is a cycle to work scheme if you do not wish to pay).

    I have been working at Romax Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's an exciting company to work for in terms of the innovation and engineering being done, and the opportunities to effect change in operations too because it's small and flexible! There is a great range of benefits on offer, particularly flexible working hours and free food fridays! The people are amazingly clever and amazingly friendly - lots of social events!

    Cons

    Having to pay for parking on site in Nottingham as it's on the University campus.
    Temptation to go to Starbucks every day!

    Advice to Management

    I think that a whole new website would make a massive difference in many areas of the business as the current one is quite hard to navigate and corporate in feel so it doesn't reflect what the business is really like!

    Pros

    Lots of social activities, good work environment, lots of opportunities to stretch yourself, nice people. Office is nice if the winter sun isn't blinding you. Starbucks close by for informal meetings.

    Cons

    Lots of attrition in a very short time frame. Cherry flapjacks get in the way of the good flapjacks in the vending machine.
