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

    Pros

    Flexible working environment with good camaraderie. Top tier clients ie Goldman Sachs so great exposure and cool projects to work on. Product is very good. Growing company. Investing even further in product and people.

    Cons

    Internal tools not great but bringing on new CRM so that will change. Need more meeting rooms or phone booths for calls.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring experts to help bring the company to the next level. Continue the focused strategy.

    I have been working at WCN full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions, amazing portfolio of clients and WCN's culture and size does allow for individuals who are capable to be given the opportunity to work on business critical accounts quickly.

    The organisation has a very flat structure and all the managers are really approachable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the businesses ambition lacks behind the level of investment required to achieve it.

    Could benefit from being more proactive with certain clients or business objectives rather than fire fighting from day to day.

    Advice to Management

    Better petition!

    A more proactive and consultative approach to product and platform design.

    I have been working at WCN full-time

    Pros

    WCN is a very well established player in this space so you get to work for a leader within the industry. It’s a positive environment with a friendly and committed team. A lot of feedback and communication during the interview process and a well thought out on boarding plan and tech kit ready for day one.

    Cons

    Some standard business tools are not in place yet that you might have taken for granted elsewhere i.e. online meeting room bookings but these are being looked at.

    Advice to Management

    Let's get these business tools implemented, the teams will appreciate it and it will make a world of difference just like that!

    I worked at WCN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to learn as a junior.

    Relaxed working env

    Flexible working - home, office, so long as the job gets done.

    Cons

    No HR - no policies, all done by line managers who often are too busy to deal with HR related issues

    No real understanding of recruitment in the business. All very technical minded.

    Advice to Management

    You pay for what you get. If want high quality staff you need to pay them the record salary to keep them else they will leave and they company will never expand with inexperienced staff. The only attempt to keep people comes when they hand in their resignation. Pre-empting this may mean people may not even accept an approach.

    I have been working at WCN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive attitude towards work / life balance, incredible customer base, historically award winning / best in class tech, a sustained hiring strategy more recently in key business areas, one of the largest tech teams (some serious talent with a wealth of experience) dedicated to rec software in uk, location (if out of london floats your boat as it does mine), autonomy. Some exciting plans underway around improving delivery model and certain business areas. Excellent oportunities for junior support and System analyst staff (regular promotions / moves into other business units), new uk md is having very positive impact on company.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation over recent years, poor customer satisfaction reviews, fire fighting environment, product roadmap driven by what a developer thinks would improve platform rather than any strategic customer focussed roadmap, bit too relaxed environment means some people in all business units could be giving less than 100%, struggling to make the move from small to medium sized business.

    Advice to Management

    Currently managent team seem to have a cohesive vision, majority of key staff can see this and its having a positive impact on environment.

    I worked at WCN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    WCN runs more products; I have worked in the vX team for more than 2 years and a half. Everybody in the team is really nice and easy going, the work environment is relaxed and employees get a lots of freedom and flexible time. I had really nice time in the office and also at the pub, with collegues. The level is really high and there is a lots to learn.

    Cons

    My experience was really satisfying, I don't recall any bad side at the moment...

    Advice to Management

    Keep going like this!
