Pros

This company isn't just about lip service, everything they say is true. They care about their employees above profits. They work hard to ensure employee wellbeing is at the forefront of everything they do from active diversity inclusion groups such as pride and EDAI to mental wellbeing support and more. Colleagues give 110% to go above and beyond for clients to ensure their success. Client relationships are long term. The entire business has access to a very transparent senior leadership team and communication is good throughout the company. They are always looking for ways to improve.

Cons

It has been hard working remotely for a company that has such a great culture, as you definitely don't get the fun water cooler time, lunches or activities the business is known for.

Advice to Management

Continue what you are doing to make REPL not just a great place to work but a beacon in society of how to do the right thing by people.

The entire business has access to a very transparent senior leadership team and communication is good throughout the company.

Pros

> Plenty of opportunities if you are willing to be patient and seek them out. > If you like a challenge and being thrown in at the deep end, this is the place for you. > Travel possibilities. > Household name clients. > Genuine family feel with great Christmas parties (pandemic permitting). > Some people on senior leadership team came in at Senior Consultant level, demonstrating how far you can go in a reasonable amount of time. > Ongoing improvement (offices, policies, equipment) as they genuinely listen to their people.

Cons

> Not a con but it may not be for everyone - starting as graduate (in 2013) I learned that nobody is going to hand you a career path. Things have likely changed, but you may find you need to write your own path, persevering early days with your initial role and absorbing as much as possible. Once you gather some experience, you will then be far more likely to have you pick of the projects. > IT wouldn't upgrade my 2kg Thinkpad despite a device refresh but I believe there is now a "pick your own" device scheme.

Pros

Some very nice people on US team

Cons

REPL has none of the experience or competencies necessary to build a sustained US presence. This is a UK HQ'D, very small private company that obtains business through UK partner referral and has no real experience or commitment to growth in the US market. Owners believe US customers will be drawn to them without effort, as they are in the UK. There is no understanding of the US buying criterial and the need to demonstrate a value proposition. On numerous occasions over the past few years, they have hire experienced sales teams however they offer no support and make commitments and promises that they have no intentions of fulfilling. The turnover has been tremendous. Leadership keeps any and all good leads for themselves, refuses to create or share a compensation plan for the sales team and pays commissions at their sole discretion - providing no rational to support these decisions. They have several women in significant leadership positions in the UK, who appear competent - but don't be fooled by this, they are completely un-empowered - the 3 owners undermine them on a regular basis. It is a disappointing experience on so many levels. This is not a company recommended for any passionate individual who is committed to their career development, reputation or growth - KEEP LOOKING!
