    Pros

    The context of the work is interesting.

    Due to the type of work being done older, more stable, less cutting edge technologies are often used.

    Company still living in the last decade

    Oct 5, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good work life balance available.

    Cons

    Feels like they are still working from a decade ago. Slow bureaucratic processes. Engineering machines running windows 7 which is baffling. Huge lack of investment in IT and infrastructure. Developers aren't given the tools that they require to ensure they do the best job possible. Complete lack of culture. Disjointed middle management. Cost-cutting on every possible corner.

    Not a good engineering company

    Sep 12, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in London, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Colleagues are really smart and generally there is a good work culture (work-life balance etc) - Work in some consultancy spaces (e.g. areas of gov) can be really interesting and rewarding in terms of the value you bring - Opportunity to get involved in wider areas of the dev lifecycle early - Consultancy work allows you to work on a variety of projects, which generally keeps things interesting (although tech stack rarely changes)

    Cons

    - Company values management over engineering, it's hard to progress past T4 (mid developer) without direct management experience, and even with this it's twice as hard for engineers to get promoted over general consultant roles like PMs - Salaries are quite low, especially given how expensive our charge out rates are. - Poor distribution of senior to junior members. Because of the high charge out rate the company generally throws loads of grads on things making it hard to maintain good standards, which I think they're starting to see strain over recent years - Company infrastructure is TERRIBLE, it lags nearly daily to the point you can't work, it's hard to get any permissions and generally a terrible experience to develop on - Very bureaucratic, hard to get promoted unless you know the right people (and pay rises are generally pretty poor without a promotion) - Hardly any opportunity to do anything that isn't paid by a client, so you're restricted on self-improvement and improving internal issues - Fix the terrible and largely undefined interview process for experience hires (I've seen so many experienced devs leave and hardly any be hired)

    Pros

    Was good before not anymore.

    Cons

    Do not try to save a sinking ship. Get more BDM instead of trashing people in the bin.

    Lovely people to work with, very laid back but dated build infrastructure

    Aug 5, 2021 - Junior Software Engineer in Guildford, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with, very easy going. Free Kit-Kats! Very good pension scheme (~£230 a month on top of salary)

    Cons

    Dated build system, also a bit of the pain working around the tight security measures (difficult but not impossible to transfer files between different networks) Use perforce instead of git, though git is used for all new side-projects Also some horrendous legacy code, but due to the nature of the tasks a huge understanding of their exact functionality is not necessaru
