    Learned a lot in a very organized company full of intelligent people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England

    ProsThey are very disciplined, professional, competent people and a lot of excellent project managers. Standards are high and the work is challenging. There is a culture of getting the job done rather than doing the hours and the flexibility of working from home was good in my department. I never felt like I was doing a boring 9 to 5 job, it was a lot of hard work but with the working from home it didn't feel so bad. My team was also fun and friendly.

    ConsSwindon isn't a great location and the offices are a bit sad, catering is terrible. Sometimes the company is too process driven which could be stifling in certain jobs. Not enough turnover which means the company doesn't learn from others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement decisions are not transparent enough. Too much emphasis on seniority rather than abilities and results. Be less Intel-focused and hire execs (and CEOs) from outside.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
