    I worked at Black Sun (UK) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The most well organised in all aspects company I have ever worked for,
    High-profile clients, it has given me great exposure and insight, to progress in my career,
    Great opportunities, great location and a beautiful office
    Social events are always Great FUN!
    Higher management is well organised, transparent in their vision and communication. This is visibly obvious as it comes across in their passion, enthusiasm and drives to make this company a success that it is already. It can only progress to higher & brighter things!

    Cons

    The 1st quarter of the year can get very busy. However, it was also a great learning experience.

    Interview

    The hiring process was completely unprofessional! They did a telephone interview and then invited me for a face to face and gave me an assignment to complete. They asked if I was all right working long hours as it is nature of their business and if I would be tired commuting across town after working these long hours. l actually thought it was a great assignment but it would be time consuming. I needed about 3 days as I also had another assignment to do. At first they said they will provide their availabilities and I can pick. Then on a friday, they asked for my availability. I provided it but no response. I wasted half the weekend working on the assignment but I decided not to complete it until I received confirmation of my interview which I was assured was happening. This behavior plus the long hours questions raised some red flags so I read the reviews. Just as I suspected, the culture was called toxic and very long hours was expected pretty much all the time, and even weekends, with no compensation. They had invited me to ask any follow up questions via email. So on Sunday, I sent them an email asking if very long hours or weekend work was regularly expected as they had asked if I was fine with it. I never received a response nor confirmation of the interview. I'm glad I didn't finish the assignment.
