    Pros

    Your colleagues, personal development, passion for building our product, and fantastic work life balance. It’s full of people who actually want to be there.

    Cons

    A little bit of administrative red tape, but that’s to be expected of any medium/large company. I honestly can’t think of any other cons! Maybe it’s that sometimes the hot water in the shower breaks?

    I have been working at reed.co.uk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues go the extra mile to help if you ask for advice. Good harmony. Flexible hours. Central Location. Near to a good high street. Good opportunities to develop skills. Wide desks, comfy chairs. A good respect for all religions, nations and backgrounds. Fair sickness policy. Pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    Large environment, dis-economies of scale, as you would expect for a company this size. Access to some part obviously has to be restricted. 9 hour days, (they do not expect you to work beyond hours). 6 month probation, 5 year reference background check.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, getting people into work is not an easy business. Continue improving slowly and surely. If your not the fastest it does not matter, you have been in the business the longest and going the distance and delivering the result (placing people into jobs) is what counts.

    Pros

    The people you work with and the managers make this a really enjoyably place to work. You're given responsibility for important tasks from an early stage, giving you the chance to progress and develop. A good work/life balance also helped.

    Cons

    Salaries on offer might be better elsewhere, but remember to balance this against enjoying your job/life!
