    I have been working at Unit4 part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    "In business for people" is so much more than a strapline at Unit4. It's clear that Mike Ettling and the Global Leadership Team have serious ambition - and they're taking everyone along with them on this journey. People are central to all decisions; whether it's the people who work at Unit4, the people who work for our partner organisations or the people who use Unit4 ERP, FP&A, HCM and Student Management software as customers - everyone benefits for our people first philosophy. It's a fast-paced environment and there's lots to do - everyone is enthusiastic and approachable and keen to make improvements. People are valued and there are great opportunities. For a large global organisation there is still a sense of belonging and comradery. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Unit4 as a great place to work.

    Cons

    I haven't come across anything I would consider a con.

    Pros

    - unlimited time off/holidays - company values - understanding the importance of work life balance and encouraging flexible working - training opportunities - opportunities to develop and build your career path - new and fresh team

    Cons

    - whilst a lot of the team are new, the people who have been with the company longer are quite set in stone in how they operate and not always open to change.
