    I worked at Webgains full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good manager who cares about employees and their career growth. Quarterly company outings and team-building activities. You have complete autonomy as long as you deliver good results

    Cons

    It's a pain to work with European colleagues, especially London, when you need something to get done. They promise you stuff but rarely deliver anything. You can only rely on yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Initiate more training

    I worked at Webgains

    Pros

    Good location. Friday drinks. Great Industry to be in.

    Cons

    Lost it's way since a change of management. Loss of most of the talent at the company meaning no expertise. Gave up most of it's values and becoming more corporate. No real sense of being valued as an employee - no sense of camaraderie. Lack of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine your priorities.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Webgains full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great team structure; - Good location/modern and dog-friendly office - Supportive colleagues; - Work Flexibility.

    Cons

    - Poor Management structure/micromanagement; - Lack of training/career development opportunities; - Salary and benefits package is not competitive at all; - Lack of human resources; - Numbers first - people after.

    Advice to Management

    - Put people first and think in a long-term; - Take some actions rather than saying words and to deliver what promised on time. - At least have an interest in your people, find an appropriate way to train and develop their new skills and acknowledge their strengths for the further benefit, rather than persuade them to change.

    I have been working at Webgains full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A very flexible and accommodating company to work for. Lovely people in the London office and I look forward to going to work each morning.

    Cons

    Very few. There can be a lack of atmosphere in the office and sometimes MD can be absent a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Sometimes communication could be improved.

    I have been working at Webgains full-time

    Pros

    - People. Webgains has some of the most knowledgable, passionate and dedicated people I’ve worked with. It’s a genuine team and that shouldn’t be taken for granted, it’s not something you find everywhere. - Company objectives. There are challenging, yet achievable goals set at every level of the business. It’s great to be part of a business that values the input of every person. - Standards. No one is cutting... corners, no one lets things slide. Everybody cares about the standard of work at Webgains.

    Cons

    - Resource. Some departments are clearly understaffed, which given the company goals and standard of work expected does create additional pressure.

    I worked at Webgains full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great location Knowledgeable, friendly and hardworking colleagues Good working hours (4:30 Friday finish) Good opportunity to get in the door within the industry

    Cons

    Salary – Terrible! Many staff are underpaid and hard work not recognised. There isn’t a clear process for salary reviews, and when they do happen often rejected or delayed Lack of transparency and direction – CEO boast about financial capabilities but hides away from salary and bonus conversations. No clarity and minimal opportunities for career progression. Ridiculous “updates” on tech and resources to help do... our jobs. Been waiting over 18 months for the new platform and nonexistent AI technology. Marketing is used as a distraction for the lack of progress and innovation of the company. A spying culture where staff are monitored beyond normal practices and micro managed to the point of depression and anxiety. Claim to care about staff well-being but actively work against this! Passive aggressive management and poor leadership – refusing to acknowledge this will leave you with no staff – there is only so much we can tolerate. Employee benefits comes with a price tag (what’s the point) Does not give you the edge – or much of anything else…

    Advice to Management

    Ruling with an iron fist is damaging. Acknowledge feedback and actually work on them. Understand people work in different ways – we are not robots and or clones. You get the best out of people when you work with them.
