    Pros

    - Fun place to work - Great team around you - Good Christmas and Summer parties - It is a bit like an extension of your time at university, a good way to ease you in to the world of work

    Cons

    - Bad progression - Bad Pay - Things are only awarded to those who shout the loudest rather than those who work the hardest - Management are all too young and inexperienced

    Potential is there...

    Pros

    Great people and social aspect with a good location. Great summer and Christmas parties. Relatively relaxed working hours if you can manage your own time well. Freedom to make your own decisions and to put forward and implement suggestions to improve the running of the business. If you can work independently and be self sufficient, you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Some dead-weight management and senior staff. If you're the type of person that needs managing, you're going to struggle to progress and learn. You've got to constantly fight for promotions where the expectations are rapidly changing (I can't exaggerate this enough). Progression is very limited. Recent cutbacks on areas of staff where people develop from, leaving a void for future talent. No official training in place to learn transferable or even useful skills - you have to learn yourself.

    Great fun, hard work, good for Grads

    Pros

    If you work on the National team you get to try out loads of samples and take many home. The average age is around 25 so it's a very young collective and it can be a lot of fun. There's a summer and winter party and they are mental! It's a very relaxed environment in the way that you can wear what you want and express your personality.

    Cons

    If you're analyst you don't get the commission that makes it a great place for Salespeople. You do a lot of unpaid overtime (I calculated I worked about a month for free in a year!!!) and don't get much appreciation. There's not much space to grow. If management does not like you you won't progress even if you work hard. There's a lot of pressure to hit deadlines and meet targets and can be super stressful but the Salespeople are the ones reaping financial rewards.

    Great fun environment, but they expect a lot and sometimes don't treat people well

    Pros

    - Really fun work environment, sociable office with lots of friendly people - Staff perks were plentiful and good fun. There were frequent drinks events organised and paid for and the Christmas and Summer Parties were huge, well planned events which were always very fun - Given a good amount of responsibility, perfect way to gain skills as a graduate - Management is reasonably transparent and good to speak to. Whole company was involved in meetings.

    Cons

    - Long hours and hard work. This got better over the time I was there, but people often stayed past 6pm. Latest I ever stayed was 10pm. - Advances and hard work often weren't recognised with praise or a pay rise. Your role might change, or you'd be given a load more responsibility, but they'd avoid addressing this or paying you more. - Got away with paying people less than they're worth (because most employees were graduates) - I personally didn't agree with their ethics when dealing with the merchants who run deals. They are sometimes too keen for money and don't care too much about customer experience/the merchant's business.

    Pros

    Wowcher is attached to a larger corporation, meaning that staff are automatically enrolled onto a good pension scheme. You're not expected to do much (this can also be seen as a con) and it is easy to get a job here.

    Cons

    While the company is making attempts at improving its image, staff like me still feel undervalued. If you want to receive appropriate training to better your skills, then unfortunately you can forget about it here. Managers are not sufficiently trained themselves and subsequently fail to know how to nurture talented people. The general atmosphere is also childish in nature due to the majority of the workforce being under 30. Most people stick around and leave after a year, knowing there's no prospects. Shame.
