Featured Review

Current Employee - Employee Relations Advisor

I have been working at Met Office part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Being engaged in work that makes a positive difference in people's lives, the Exeter HQ site is amazing, and the breadth of opportunities in a huge range of disciplines makes for a diverse way of... thinking.

Cons

Some legacy traces of old civil service ways of hierarchical thinking still remain .

Advice to Management

Consider whether all the different careers have clear progression opportunities.

Current Employee - Senior Data Scientist

I have been working at Sparx part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Friendly conscientious atmosphere Ideas and healthy debate always encouraged regardless of status Many opportunities to progress and transfer between different roles Very knowledgeable and helpful... employees Good facilities involving gym and free hot meals provided

Cons

If relocating, quite a high chance that it will be from a long distance! However there are many social events to help integrate new staff.

Advice to Management

At the time I'm writing this the company is successfully attracting new partners at a rapid rate so management should continue to do what they're doing!
