    Pros

    - If you can keep your head down, you can get away with browsing social media and the web for about 2 hours a day, this is not really a pro. - Paycheck is on time, but too low, Renting a studio apartment sets you back55-60% of your salary, good luck with that

    Cons

    - Everything, really, high staff turnover, Team leaders last 3 months on average - No procedures, whatever procedures are written down is minimalist, god forbid you run into an edge case and have to ask - Training does not deserve to be called training - Abusive team leader, verbally, be prepared to face roll-eyes expression when asking reasonable questions - Culture of fear and absolute micro management - The verification procedure and the UI are disfunctional, compared to modern apps, this is unbelievable outdated. Same issues are never fixed - Almost permanent mandated overtime aka management failure - Desperately understaffed, try to take holidays while another co worker has holidays and see how that goes - Upper management detached from the reality and severeness of technical debt, the workflow is very inefficient, the blame always goes to the innocent staffers. - Mobbing by management in collaboration with HR, there are 2 honorable exceptions. - Culture of backstabbing and throwing "friends" under the bus, the higher the job title, the more pronounced this issue shows - Over-promising on training, totally under-delivering, you will not learn much here, you will do repetitive "monkey tasks" and do patchwork for the non functional software - Minimalist behavior on assigned tasks by many, the motivated people will be fixing the mistakes of others and then turn minimalist themselves - You suggest improvements, you will be greeted with hostility or inactivity, sometimes your ideas could be presented as someone elses. - The minimalist attitude could have the root in an unrewarding salary(rumour has it, the new people get less salary!) or unrealistic KPIs - I would never recommend this place to a friend - No handshake , no eye contact on the day of leaving, after 2 years in the company.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Whilst we appreciate that there have been some challenges over the last couple of years, there are however already a number of improvements which have happened or are in progress and we are confident that these improvements will help Tipico be an Employer of Choice. We do not tolerate any form of abusive or mobbing behaviour and we do have the appropriate channels in place to deal with any such issues. Finally, we do not post our own reviews and do take all feedback on-board. Kind regards Wayne Searle Group Human Resources Director
