    Pros

    It has to be the people you work with. Those that stay up with you at stupid o’clock to fix an issue which was probably flagged months but ignored because they added another bit of JavaScript for the sales team. Get those features in! Location is alright. And the office is stealth. It’s in an alley way. As soon as you disappear down that alley you will wish you never had google maps when you went to the interview and you should have just got lost on the way to it.

    Cons

    There is so many. First one is management. The C*O micro managed the development teams and decided the best tech stack ever. Ignored every recommendation given to them in favour of features that were for the sales team. You would stay up during migrations, releases and you would get a lovely thank you just for the next day to be exactly the same as the previous. Micro management and lack of care. All sort of tech related debt exists, which trust me accumulated like a snowball travelling down the alps at the speed of sound. Salaries are abysmally low compared to the rest of the market. You would get paid more selling rubber ducks at your local market. HR are a resource made up of humans but they don’t help the employee. They help out the management so don’t think you can go to them with a problem about work. They couldn’t care less. There is no training what so ever. None. There is no development or career progression. Unless you are a friend of management. In that case you could be the worst employee ever and still get promoted. Stay away if your a keen techie. Don’t let Wowcher burn that flame for being the best in your field. You are treated like a monkey here. Type quicker monkey. Type!

    Pros

    Nice office and good potential even if not used

    Cons

    Not Agile teams, no room for improvements, close-minded people where you just need to shut up and do what they tell you to do otherwise you're out.

    Worst company ever!

    Pros

    Friendly IT developers, nothing else! Horrible management, tremendous environment, no bonus, no good pension, nothing. You are just a monkey that does a job, badly.

    Cons

    The worst management ever seen! Lack of organisation, lack of communication among teams and inside teams, no communication at all with CTO , your line manager . You keep doing the same monkey job every day and then the company website goes down for hours and there is loss of money and shock of the CEO. You won't be heard and you won't see any career progression. Con, you care about your career, your health and your life. Instead of accepting the job here, keep looking or you will have A LOT OF REGRETS! What they promise you during the interview process will not be kept. Seriously, stay AWAY.
