Featured Review

Current Contractor - Embedded Software Engineer

I have been working at DCA Design for less than a year

Pros

DCA have refurbished offices which makes going into work every morning easy. The management seem to understand the needs of the individuals and aren't afraid to engage with everyone. The mixture of a... young and mature workforce makes the working place fun. The varying design projects keeps the buzz going around the workplace.

Cons

Free on site parking isn't available which means it's a good excuse to get some exercise to the many car parks around Warwick.

Advice to Management

Try and keep hold of the young work force and keep giving them the good advice and mentoring which you are already doing.

Current Employee - Student Demonstrator

I have been working at Birmingham City University part-time for less than a year

Pros

For the most part friendly staff, clean & pleasant work environment, good pay for student jobs, good sick-day (etc) agreements.

Cons

Some staff are hard to work with, uncooperative students can be frustrating, on-site food facilities can be expensive.

Advice to Management

Some lecturers could be better trained or more willing to actively engage with students.
