  1. COVID-19

    "Great opportunity for graduates to get their foot in the door"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Graduate Software Engineer in Brighton, England, England

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - High-quality training paid for in full - Quick start with very little time between getting the job and actually starting, it was also a very quick interview process which was a nice change - Given opportunities early on to interact with a range of clients/given tips on how to communicate effectively - Given real responsibilities in projects rather than busywork

    Cons

    The main downsides are covid related such as reduced pay while working from home, this was clearly stated in the job offer and interviews so you know what you are getting into. The learning curve can be steep but good training and help from coworkers alleviates the majority of this.

  2. "Very Good Graduate Experience"

    1. Company is chill 2. They're really nice and helpful 3. Environment is good 4. All their employees are down to earth and really nice

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons for this company. I guess, I didn't voice out my opinion that I wanted to be a dev but overall, they are amazing. Would love to work with them again.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Netbuilder full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Had a fantastic feeling of comradery within the Delivery Centre, great communication and very strong leadership on-site. Solid processes and very clear plan of delivery from the project managers, with integrated support from testing and all developers - a real team spirit. Used to have lots of social events and Friday Meeting with Head of Delivery was always enjoyable.

    Cons

    Only had one customer. Lost that customer. We all lost our jobs. Either bad insight by senior management or poor sales but company crumbled beneath their feet.

    Cons

    Standard Workplace Pension No other "common" benefits such as private healthcare, car allowance, gym memberships , pet insurance etc. - However you can get these type of things discounted using the perk system, so it balances itself out a little.
