    Exceptional process, updated regularly and understood the next steps all the way through.

    Human Resources Business Partner/Manager (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsExcellent package, great extra's, that's the least of my pro's, the atmosphere and general supportive culture is outstanding. Great place to work. The interview and the process that followed was excellent.

    ConsThe overall recruitment process was excellent, however a little slow, the upside is that I was kept informed all the way through.

    Global Technology Services: Good people, skills, opportunities and re-numeration

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople - feels like you're working with like minded adults!
    Pay - if you work hard then there is ample opportunity for extra income and advancement
    Travel - plenty of opportunity to travel if in the right role
    Trust - My experience is that employees are given a high level of autonomy

    ConsAmerican Centric - sometimes it feels as if the U.S. comes first
    Letting good staff go - too many talented people in lower positions have been let go in cost cutting exercises

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what most management should do, be more: accountable; approachable; reflexive; employee focused; adaptable. Team building should feature more, as should subsidisation for staff events (nights out etc).

    A fast growing global business that continues to grow and has great prospects in the BRIC economies. Very stable

    HRBP (Current Employee) Nottingham, England

    ProsClear strategy, great CEO, has grown up alot since floated in 2006 and for anyone who wants to get diverse experience in a fast growth business, it still has plenty to offer. People are very friendly and want to help, there is a good team ethic through the business, which has grown alot over last few years. Benefits package is generally good overall, but base pay is no more than market average.

    ConsSnr HR leadership team is OK, but by no means world beating and the organisation has outgrown current HRD. The rewards for Snr people seem at odds with other people lower in the organisation, so it would be nice for some of the great growth and results to trickle down. For people who perform, there is great experience to gain, albeit this doesn't always follow with promotions and reward, which can/will frustrate the ambitious There is a frustrating tendency to recruit externally for Snr roles, rather than use talent internally, which is far cheaper and much lower risk of failure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook inside the organisation to promote to more snr roles and be prepared to take a risk, there are lots of talented people looking for that next step

    Great place to start your career

    Finance Intern (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA (US)

    ProsIf you take the initiative, there are always opportunities for recognition. You can take on high profile projects and work with members outside your functional group. The team environment is friendly and nurturing, and management is open and receptive.

    ConsThere are few opportunities for career growth within the company. Although they do hire internally, you're more likely to expand within your given role rather than move up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would have been interesting to have more cross-functional team experiences to increase employee ownership of company (versus functional) goals and objectives.
