"I had fun."23 Feb 2020

Current Employee - PhD Student

I have been working at University of Edinburgh full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Well connected to many other groups around the world, lots of opportunity to pursue wherever the science takes you.

Cons

More formal than many groups with a clear hierarchy, not necessarily a bad thing though..

Current Employee - Product Manager

I have been working at Skyscanner full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Amazing place to build products, a very product centric organisation and culture. Building and shipping stuff here is very easy. Mission driven company, truly customer centric, all decisions are... made in a data driven way with customers at the heart of how we operate Great team mates, people here are smart, ambitious and very humble. Interesting problems to work on, when you get to a certain level of scale, interesting problem spaces emerge that you wouldn't necessarily get to work on in small startups.

Cons

Working across circa 9 offices can sometimes cause communications challenges, but this would be the same in any global tech company and not specific to Skyscanner, it's really up to people to decide... what scale of company makes sense for how they like to operate.
