    I have been working at IFDS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good and friendly people with adequate work load. The office although a fair distance from my own address is easy to locate and within walking distance of the highstreet.

    Cons

    becoming less family orientated from when i first started. There is not enough on site parking so you have to park at one of the local town centre parking locations, this is at the cost of the company but is still a little frustrating in bad whether. There are too many manager for managers sake, which dilutes it's worth.

    Advice to Management

    maintain the family orientated feel to the business. only promote those that truely deserve it based on the work they carry out, not by creating roles to promote people just because their face fits.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IFDS (London, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Long (Started as a 1:1 then panel review)
    Laid back and relaxed interview in a meeting room
    Asked a lot of questions about "potential" problems they could experience and how you would solve for them.
