Former Employee - Manager

I worked at Met Office part-time

Pros

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff

Cons

Too much pressure on employees

Current Employee - Sales/Account Management

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

Pros

Starting a new job during lockdown was an interesting experience (!) but Sponge have made it as painless as possible. I have been given all the tools needed for success and everyone is extremely... helpful and welcoming. Although I have yet to set foot in the office I already feel part of the team and my work is frequently recognised. My manager is absolutely fantastic - we have very open communication and she has already added so much value to my existing sales/account management skillset. She gives me regular feedback and we have weekly touchpoints which are very helpful. Sponge is a company that is going from strength to strength and I am confident there will be room for me to progress quicker than in other organisations in the area.

Cons

I genuinely cannot think of many downsides to working for Sponge other than the benefits package could have more in the way of holiday entitlement.

Advice to Management

Keep pushing the envelope with innovations of ways of working!
