How are the career development opportunities at White Clarke Group?

Pros

Everyone that I work with go above and beyond their roles to ensure the quality of the software is improved with each release. Everyone is friendly and will always offer assistance to new starters so that they can pick up the software well, and new employees are given a great deal of support as they learn more and more. Great communication between teams, so that items are not missed between integrations. There are some fantastic events put on by the company that involve not only the actual staff, but their families too (Summer BBQ at Woburn safari park, or playing crazy golf). There is an active Social committee that are always looking for events to organise, along with fizz Friday on the last Friday of the month, fancy dress events, and great company Christmas parties. The company provides a good opportunity to progress your job role, and due to the openness of the SMT are always looking for ideas and suggestions on how the company can improve.

Cons

The bonus scheme, whilst excellent to those that were fortunate to receive it, has caused bad feelings from some that didn't get it, which I felt was unfair to people that do a lot of work at WCG for other people who then feel let down.

Advice to Management

Not everyone's job role is easy to quantify so everyone should be given a fair bonus and not left feeling worthless.

Why do White Clarke Group employees quit?

Pros

WCG is a good stepping stone to grow in your career, the people are generally nice, organizational culture is okay.

Cons

Very little to no room for growth (unless you're a manager). Company hasn't onboarded a new NA client in 3 years. 2020 was tough financially so they reduced everyone's salaries for 6 months. This was supposed to prevent layoffs, but they fired 11 people JUST from the Toronto office. Now I'm looking to leave this place because I fear I'll be next.

Advice to Management

Take responsibility for your mistakes. Don't blame COVID on your bottom line. No new North American clients in 3 years is your sales and marketing teams fault, not the dedicated, hard-working troops who you fired.
