    I worked at Transact full-time

    Pros

    Majority of staff are young and enthusiastic, nice location, good benefits. Good HR team and a roof terrace to relax.

    Cons

    Senior management are approachable and talented, however middle management are largely top-down oriented, "do-what-I-say" types. Passive-aggressive behaviour and even bullying is apparent, and there is practically no opportunity for non-management staff to contribute ideas and progress. Atmosphere on many days is toxic, and the workplace itself is drab, slightly shabby, and overcrowded. Meetings drag on for hours with no progress, teams don't interact with each other well and communication needs improvement across the board. No flexibility in work unless you're senior or favoured - facetime, putting in extra hours and knowing the right people seems to be the way to get noticed rather than productivity and talent.

We are disappointed that you did not perceive there to be much opportunity to contribute towards business ideas and that you felt that communication within the business needs to be improved. We strive to foster a collaborative, engaging culture that empowers staff to grow and maximise their skills across the business through open communication. Opportunities are offered internally to apply for roles within different areas of the business, there are secondments and SME roles available to encourage ongoing learning and personal development. Once again, thank you for your feedback. We encourage openness and honesty to provide an environment whereby our employees feel listened to and supported and we will take into consideration each of the points you have raised. We wish you well in your future career.

    I worked at Transact full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good bonus, people are generally good to work with, great culture

    Cons

    Very slow moving company. Want to change but have no clue how to change. Basically they have an old tech stack and it isn't a place to grow your knowledge. It's a retirement home for technology! Far away from any modern concepts of flexible working, work from home etc.
