Does gohenry offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

The mission and people are great; it feels like you're making a difference. The challenges and scale can be interesting. People are trusted to get on with work and are treated well. The offices are nice and well located, and the monthly team meetups are fun.

Cons

The benefits package is quite barebones; there is a lot of scope to make it more appealing. There is an on-call rota but people don't seem to be paid for being part of it; instead they are given time off in lieu, which for a lot of people isn't a worthwhile reward for spending a week tied to a phone and laptop and restricted in what they can do socially. Priorities always change and everything is urgent. Some employees have risen through the ranks without necessarily demonstrating the required level of skill for the position.

Advice to Management

Improve communication of work priorities from the top down. The management team are great but it inevitably feels like one is disappointing them if work can't be completed by some arbitrary deadline that usually shifts anyway. Look at improving the benefits package. Be brave, try things like 4 day working weeks, unlimited holiday, and other things that a lot of startups/tech companies are offering to remain attractive. The last year and a half have hugely shaken up the work environment already so go with the flow. Look at rewarding people financially for being part of an on-call rota, and make it optional. It will lead to people volunteering and will avoid resentment from people who might feel forced to be part of it. Allowing anonymous feedback/questions for the M3s would result in people being more open about problems.
