    Cons

    almost none that come to mind

    Advice to Management

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Laid back atmosphere - Really nice people - Nice office and great perks (foosball, table tennis, coffee, team lunches, socials etc) - Modern front end technologies (React, Redux + ES6) - Loads of autonomy - Training budget - Flexible working - Impact > hours

    Cons

    - Legacy code can make life difficult at times (although this is being addressed) - The dev team is mostly remote and this means that devs in the London office can feel a bit disconnected ( This is mitigated by a strong slack culture. There is an interest to grow the London team too )

    Advice to Management

    Create more space for the tech team to address tech debt. An investment in this area will make feature development faster in future.

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

    Pros

    Very efficient at managing cash, so bank account remains full

    Cons

    Stingy, very cheap on benefits and especially salaries, well below market. No vision, trying to build a company based on arbitrage business, just one more middle man in a very bloated industry all paying each other for traffic. Lack of leadership, executives have no real clue what they're doing. They list some "big" companies as their past experience, but they clearly haven't learned much from these.

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

    Pros

    It's a company whose ambitions are easy to buy into - a growing, fast paced tech disruptor with ambitions for growth and to change the market Management are great to work for and with - very supportive, collaborative - it does not feel hierarchical Work-life balance is excellent. You have to work hard, and may work overtime from time to time, but the working environment is flexible and you can fit in leisure and home life. There's a small gym on site and a Pure Gym below, regular social events etc. Great location Interesting work - very forward thinking company

    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    fun colleagues, laid-back environment, and great social activities

    Cons

    The work sometimes is so monotonous and menial. Expanding into new markets is great but seriously, their approach gives you no room for your own creativity and input. All they care about is link building and chasing people like anything for it - although it should be done, it's not the end all be all. Why hire talented and educated people to do such work? I have worked in several companies before and never have I come across such type of work. I also don't see much growth within the co. Overall verdict is - it's boring!

    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    - fairly international team - new office - clever colleagues - supportive senior management team - Adzuna Academy initiative (monthly workshop with an external or internal speaker)

    Cons

    - CEO: micromanager; bully - hardly any benefits. Not competitive AT ALL compared to other tech companies in London - low salaries - austerity budget for everything (the CEO even comments on how much milk you put in your cereal, so be careful)

    Advice to Management

    Well done keeping this team together. You are doing some great things despite being shut down by the CEO.

    I worked at Adzuna full-time

    Pros

    - diverse team - nice office - clever, friendly people - great senior management team

    Cons

    - below-market salaries - near to zero investment in employees - control-freak CEO making everyone tiptoe around. He simply doesn't trust anyone regardless of their seniority and wants to make the final call on every single matter - from what kind of milk the company should be buying to allowing a new £500 marketing test

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work guys - I admire how you suck it up despite your frustration and resentment for the CEO, because you drive the company forward and protect your teams.
