    I have been working at Hoare Lea full-time

    Pros

    Hoare Lea is a great place to work with some very smart people. The core values that the company aspires to are great. There is also much support for further learning and freedom to innovate, meaning there is room to make a difference while carrying out day to day work.

    Cons

    Promotions and salary increases are slow. Core project and finance systems are poor (expense, timesheet, project + customer management, and other systems) which can be rather frustrating when having to deal with them.
