How are senior leaders perceived at Ocado Technology?

Pros

Great place for new graduates, exposure to latest technologies, helpful teammates, some really nice people. Great communication from CEO and Sr leadership, gives you the feeling of togetherness. Great values and vision of Sr leadership.

Cons

Team leads/line managers are untouchables, because they joined Ocado many years before. Ocado values and code of conducts do not apply to them. Tend to hire those within their close networks. These hires are then favoured in promotion and high salary raises. Team leads frequently use profanity, often disrespectful, particularly to women, openly or covertly; high turnover of staff.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Ocado Technology?

Pros

Nice place and very good office building, skillful and open-minded colleagues, payment is fine. No rush and no blame culture. Shared responsibility.

Cons

The 'value' culture was too much - awful experience. The learning curve is almost flattened. Too many meetings. Shared responsibility. For such a 'flashy' company payment is mediocre (I guess not for every position). The project I worked on was almost a 'dead horse'. Also low code quality.

Advice to Management

People should be more involved in technical decisions. Please lower the amount of meetings - less words more action. Very obviously there is some problem with team leaders, because nobody wants to be such.

Shared responsibility.
