Featured Review

Current Employee - Graduate Software Engineer

I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Great training, feelings of independence, optionality, many reasons to stick around, they provide a new MacBook Pro for working purposes, inclusive culture with good care and benefits, friendly people

Cons

Insurance benefits are non-optional (for those who do not want them this is an issue), the build up of skills is quite IBM-specific which is ok for those looking to stay

Advice to Management

N/A

Former Employee - CRM Manager

I worked at Sky full-time

Pros

- Fast moving and lots of different opportunities to get involved in - Clear company direction and striving for growth - Good attitude towards flexible working and managing work / life balance -... Great employee benefits and strong network opportunities

Cons

- Can be a Sky type, so the company isn't right for everyone - No-one owns anything, you are part of the process and so breadth of experience can be limited
