    Pros

    I have been working at Universe Technology for a few months.
    When I first started I had not been working in an office environment for a while, so going back to the ‘office routine’ was somehow scary. However, I have found nothing but very helpful and skilful managers who have trained me and took me under their wings. Constructive feedback is also given by managers once a week while holding a nice and cold beer with my colleagues….definitely a young and supportive place to work.

    Cons

    The office does not have enough plants and flowers

    Advice to Management

    Buy more flowers & plants

    I have been working at Universe Technology full-time

    Pros

    Nothing much to say. There is absoultly nothing positivity to say or tell.

    Cons

    The management again deleted all the reviews which where more than truth. Even the last recent review was 100% from the management . None of the employee ever wine the iPad, or another gift . Apart from some lunches where you have to bring the bill of 60£ and they pay you back and of course u have to pay the tax for it.

    Advice to Management

    Management !!!! Please just change and do not always delete the reviews it does not make any different . There are so many different website like glass door, there will be always negative reviews about you and your company.

    Pros

    So far it has been good. Helpful and they give good support and training. They try to be consultative with clients and not too pushy, which is an improvement on my earlier sales experience.

    Cons

    None really. It is too early to say how I will eventually perform in this job.

    Advice to Management

    None as yet. The middle management I deal with seem fine. Don't see the senior management or directors much

    Pros

    First of all the location of this company is just amazing, you work in an brand new office with a lovely view of Canary Wharf and the river passing by. They provide you a comfortable desk, well equipped with a new computer and ergonomic chairs. They also provide you biscuits, fruits, coffee and tea.
    It was my first experience in recruitment and I am really happy to have done it there. Thanks to their training and the advises I got all along, I manage to make severals deals quickly and of course make some money!
    Good company to work for.

    Cons

    More companys night out ;-)

    Pros

    Nice people, great atmosphere - good opportunity for international business. The training was good. Those without experience have intensive classroom training followed by mentoring and on-the-job training. Supportive management. They follow your work, try to find bottlenecks and devise ways to overcome them.

    Cons

    Downsides are not really with management or the company. Employees need to be prepared for a seat-of-your-pants experience of international business! It is adventurous and entrepreneurial. Good for some, less good for "office bodies" who just want to do filing.

    Advice to Management

    It is all about selection. That can't always be perfect, but I imagine that is the challenge. Recently have seen good people come on board and they need to keep this up.

    Pros

    It is recruitment. This company is professional and ethical in a competitive international environment.

    They give good training and people are successful here.

    They have made a commitment to increase social events, starting wtih a big Christmas party in November.

    Cons

    Self-motivation is required to succeed. here, as in any entrepreneurial endeavour.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on selecting those who want to learn and develop. Easier said than done, but worth mentioning.
