Are transfers to other offices possible with Compare The Market?

Pros

Opportunity to make an impact within the organisation Great place to grow, especially as a Junior to Senior Software Engineer Good work/life balance in most teams Pre-COVID the London office had many good social events Generally positive attitudes towards D&I coming from the top, and frequent sessions organised around specific topics. Flexible (but not full remote) working, depending on your role and team Ability to move between teams in the business

Cons

Big variance between teams, in terms of how well they are run, how exciting projects are etc. Progressing beyond Senior Software Engineer may be tricky and require a bit of luck in the form of an open position. Not many Staff Engineer positions. Sometimes poorly aligned multi-team projects. This should hopefully improved with the new operating model Some negative sentiment remains due to reorganisation Have advertised to GB News through deal with Sky

Advice to Management

The messaging sometimes paints a bit of an "exec club" picture that a lot of employees don't always relate to. In some instances it also feels like the top doesn't listen.
