218 Employee Reviews

Sort: Popular Rating Date

Pros
  • The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in (in 53 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 47 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)
