Pros

Relaxed hours Free Cereal and drinks Good people Great opportunity to work with some of the big hospitality brands

Cons

Complete lack of direction from senior management. No one seemed to really know what they were doing Very much an 'old boys club' feel at director level HR dept seemed very inexperienced Not much opportunity for career progression Legacy systems are problematic, no real business interest in bring the tech stack upto date No documentation on anything, alot of digging through code to find anything out Alot of 'we're a family business' claims, but it couldn't feel further from that Really poor handling of covid. Basically ignored staff for 3 months then announced redundancies. I was unfortunately one of the ones made redundant, which I fully understand the reasons for - but the manner in which it was communicated, and the consultation process were really shambolic and left a sour feeling of the entire experience

Advice to Management

Invest in HR Be honest with staff, communication needs serious improvement at all levels

Complete lack of direction from senior management.

No real long term product roadmap, some old legacy systems using very out of date technology and struggling under their own weight. Senior management don't really seem to understand development.
