    A BIG LAYOff is about to come Reasons 1)I was reading a report in that it is mentioned lot of employees got massive hike but now they are not able to prove their worth 2)Fear of recession 3)Startup has paid very high Amt to a lot of because it was not the money that they have earned actually & the biggest reason Supply is increasing at very very high rate now especially in IT. Don’t afraid to accept truth😇it is same for me Tata Consultancy Deloitte HCL Technologies Accenture India

      Pros

      Had a great time over the last 12 weeks meeting lads from all over the British Isles and the States as well. Developed skills in relevant programming languages and frameworks. Rubbed shoulders with some UK corporate giants. The trainers took a great interest in ensuring Academy trainees maintained a good work-life balance. Great experience for anyone looking to get a start in the tech industry.

      Cons

      Everyone is so good at pool and it's a bit intimidating. I would prefer the Fun option Friday fridge be filled with only Stella and Strongbow, but so many people insist on drinking John Smith, Budweiser and Carlsberg. Rubbish.

      Hi, its great to hear your enjoying your time with us! I have to say I am sorry to hear about the cons in regards to the beer and pool... this is something we will have to look at improving on. Maybe we can invest in getting some pool lessons sorted, we discourage anybody feeling intimidated!

      Pros

      - Working with great people - Fantastic learning opportunity - Great career prospects - Very warm, welcoming atmosphere - Social time is a brilliant addition

      Cons

      - Not won a single game of pool yet - The drinks on Fridays could be a bit colder - In all honesty, best place I have ever worked and the opportunities that are at hand are astounding. You would be stupid to turn this place down.

      Pros

      Paid accommodation for training, training in multiple technologies, friendly and insightful trainers, motivated working environment.. The opportunity to finish an hour early to socialize with the rest of the staff in the office is also a great plus.

      Cons

      If you're not good at pool it's going to be tough for you during social time.

      Pros

      Fantastic training in a niche technology with paid accommodation, friendly staff and other motivated peers. Added perks include an hour-early finish for social time on Friday, free rounds at the local and the opportunity to work around the UK. A massive opportunity for any STEM graduate.

      Cons

      The banter at social time can be savage if you're bad at pool.

      Pros

      The Academy is a friendly and fun office, with the trainers being some of the funniest and brilliant people, really helping you engage in what you are learning and helping out as much as possible but without making feel like you aren't just being told what to do.

      Cons

      Some Cons to working here is that there is a long queue for the pool table, but on a more serious note you don't get paid while at the academy and have to provide yourself with food, which can be a struggle but they do try and get everyone placed as soon as possible which is a big help.

      Pros

      Some of the nicest and honest people who I've ever met. They are dedicated to make sure you as an employee improve in every way possible. Not only that, but they know how to work hard and play harder, which is never a bad thing, especially when the drinks are on the boss.

      Cons

      You only get 1 hour of lunch to play pool at work, you only get fridays to drink at the office with the staff which playing games, they only socialise outside of work 6/7 days a week....Come on, there isnt anything negative about the place.
