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

    Pros

    Lot's of great perks, free tap every Friday, international travel, high salary, etc. A lot of people working there are very nice, especially coders, they are very friendly, and there are a lot of activities outside of work, such as board game night and hiking, I still miss them.

    Cons

    They don't have an appropriate training system, they like to "train on the job". People can be very mean to you if you make mistakes on things that you had never been told how to do. Management swears a lot. I don't want to say too much, but almost every week, we would receive an email about someone leaving the company. An amazing company wouldn't have such a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying so hard to recruit new people and wasting all the time and resources on that, why don't you take a minute and think about what's wrong with you? Why are you keep losing the top graduates you hire from all around the UK? Work harder to keep talent, keep them happy, keep them feeling valued and respected.

    I have been working at TPP full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    TPP care about people. I have never felt so comfortable in my own skin and experienced so much love and appreciation for just being me. Staff at TPP want you to succeed. You are able to interrupt any meeting or pull someone out of a room at any time to get the advice or support you need. This way of working is a little strange at first but once you get used to it, it makes perfect sense. Why hover outside a room when...

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the job, sickness, holidays etc. You can sometimes be put on projects with a short deadline that you may not know a lot about. You have a little panic moment and go into full TPP mode which is, ask everyone around you for help. You then start to feel a lot better. Once you complete the task you get that senses of achievement which I personally find addictive. It's just how we work and you get used...

    I have been working at TPP full-time

    Pros

    It’s great working somewhere you can have an impact from day one, and it’s even better when that impact is improving the NHS and other healthcare systems around the world. It’s meaningful, and it’s significant, and it adds a vocational element coming to work that you don’t get in a lot of similar jobs. We collectively decide on our strategy and what projects we want to work on, and the teams get behind those decisions...

    I worked at TPP full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I was a Software Developer at TPP for over 5 years and, whilst there were many positives for me during that time, it is ultimately not a place I would recommend unless you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. That’s not the same as saying that I regret my time there (I don’t) it just means that in order to stay long-term you will increasingly have to compromise on things that you will likely not be comfortable...

    Cons

    I think a lot of these cons will become easier to understand if they are framed in the right way, so I'm just going to be blunt and say it: TPP is Frank's personal playground. He is the sole CEO and has full autonomy. On top of this, he is aware that the company needs very few employees to function - he's even bragged as much in whole company meetings. Just a handful of helpdesk staff and a few developers to keep the...

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, there’s nothing meaningful I can write here. You know exactly what you’re doing and I suspect, unfortunately, it will continue to work. With a fresh management team this place has the potential to be a fantastic job for life, but until then it only succeeds in creating the temporary illusion of one. Short of a cosmic shift in attitude, nothing significant will change and employees will continue to be a...

    I have been working at TPP full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I've seen a few reviews on here claiming that TPP targets naive graduates that don't understand what a normal workplace should be like, but I can't stress just how misguided I feel those reviews are. I worked for a fair few companies before joining TPP, so I'm no stranger to the workplace, but I have never been treated with so much respect as here at TPP - I was trusted with opportunities within my first few months at...

    Cons

    We have a lot of work and not enough staff, this can make some days very busy and sometimes stressful - just know that your not alone and you have an entire team behind you that won't let you struggle alone. You may end up spending a portion of your time doing work that isn't part of your core duties (such as recruitment) - some people will see this as a con, but in reality it is us all chipping in to help the company...

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes a bit more structure can be a good thing, especially when it comes to helping new starters. A more structured training programme might give new graduates the headstart they need to settle quicker and take the edge of the first few days (which is always a little scary no matter where you're working) ADVICE TO POTENTIAL APPLICANTS: If you're still not sure if TPP is right for you, please come speak to us at our...

    I honestly have so much to thank TPP for. They have given me given me a rewarding career, a fantastic salary and they are the only company I have worked for that have a genuine interest in progressing your career.

    Pros

    The work matters - improving healthcare. The job is always stimulating and challenging. The people are super-bright and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be stressful but this is minimised by sharing problems with everyone. For the most part there’s a healthy level of pressure, which is largely self imposed.

    For me, working at TPP was the best career choice I could have made. I have learnt so much working here, I've gained skills I wouldn't have had the opportunity to learn in previous jobs and I genuinely enjoy the work. I'm always busy, my weeks go so fast and there is always something interesting to get stuck into. The experience I've had allows me to help newer members of the team and support them, whilst still learning...

    Pros

    Firstly, have I been forced to write this? Absolutely not. I’m writing this because I enjoy my job, and feel that my experience should be shared to counterbalance the somewhat negative reviews on here. Those reviews don’t reflect the company that I enjoy working for. You work with very bright people, all working on projects that genuinely make a positive impact to the world we live in. It sounds cheesy, but it’s so...

    Cons

    The nature of the sector we are in means that there is some pressure - it’s healthcare and people’s lives we’re dealing with. But everyone is pulling in the same direction, and any problem is never just ‘your’ problem - it’s everyone’s. And everyone will help you.
