Employees rate Theale 6.6% higher than the overall average
Clearswift is a real convivial and friendly place to work. It is quite a small sized company, and that means that we all pretty much know each other. It also means bureaucracy is down to a minimum, and projects are actually moving forward.
I have been here just over 4 years now, my role has continuously evolved, and my salary raised every year. Clearswift provides internal and external training, and focuses on its employees personal development.
The products are great. Product management and R&D are making real efforts to be unique in a busy market.
Salary could probably be slightly higher, but the great personal development can make a real impact on future career moves.
There has been quite a few changes in directions and objectives lately, and it sometimes is hard to follow.
Advice to Management
Keep providing personal growth training for all employees. I have learned so much on a lot of topics since I'm here.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clearswift (Theale, South East England, England) in December 2014.
I found the experience very relaxing. The interview was scheduled as a day, it features a group stage and moved onto an individual programming test and interview after being selected.
The group stage was very laid back, there were a few group activities and a multiple choice computer science test. Lunch was provided and there were plenty of choices of drinks throughout the day.
The solo stage was a lot more personal. After being given a tour of the company by the current placement students I was invited to a Java test. The Java test was incredibly basic and existed purely to gain insight into your thought process. There were three programmers in the room with me whilst I was going through the test which may seem intimidating to some people, it didn't particularly bother me though.
The final stage was a formal interview with two managers, they asked me about my interests, about my University grades and general interview questions. I then had to wait for a decision the next day.
There wasn't a negotiation phase for the role.
