    I worked at WebCertain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people working (until they'll leave)

    Cons

    Very chaotic structure of the company and the HR department is just not existent to help. Very quick turnaround of staff in some departments - the ones with experience leave quickly, and nonexperienced people stay making this 'agency' a very backwards place as it comes strategy, management.

    No real training structure and no clear progression plans (they advertise both, but it's a lie)

    Biggest disadvantage is that different departments work on budget basis and trade between themselves, making the cooperation impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new website so that employees are not ashamed. Invest in experience, don't build a company based on trainees.


  3. "Messy and Messy"

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and international outlook. It is also easy to make a few friends as a lot of them are part-time.

    Cons

    Complete lack of structure and not organised. Communications between departments are poor and pay is significantly lower than other similar companies. Training is not given and there is sometimes lack of respect for part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in and respect your staffs. Communicate!

  5. "No logical working structure - frustrating"

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    A weekly lunch allowance of 7 quid but can only be spend at one & the only shop in the business park. Office culture is not abrasive or horrible.

    Cons

    The previous two comments are still true:

    1. No logical working structure in the company - still true
    2. "How can we hose our employees more effective?" attitude - a strong statement but still true in essence
    3. prioritise clients on profit rather than on who shouts loudest - still true

    New hires seem to be given a fairly low starting salary. No training. Individuals don't share knowledge and experience each other - it almost feels like intellectual property. Little chance for a British national to join Account Management unless they speak another language.

    Advice to Management

    If you have budgets for expensive toys, please employ more full-time staff or quality will continue to go down.

    Pros

    International clients and colleagues, a 'can do' attitude

    Cons

    No structure or vision for the future

    Advice to Management

    Add some structure so you know what is going on, and prioritise clients on profit rather than on who shouts loudest
