oe:gen, like all great ideas in this world, is something that came about from a few friends having some beers down the local pub. And it was back in 2005 when we actually began working in someone’s dining room as a four-person web design and development ... Read more

    I have been working at Oegen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    oe:gen is a brilliant place to work.

    Companies often bang on about having a "family environment" or claim to care about people as individuals, but rarely do they actually deliver on those promises - oe:gen does, and does so consistently and repeatedly.

    The office environment is relaxed and modern - fussball, darts, living wall, art table, creative walls, retro games console, music, beer fridge..... you get the idea.

    Everything is discussed openly, decisions are made as a team, and agile methodologies such as fail fast are fully encouraged.

    Really flexible working with regards to hours, accommodating commitments, working from home and all that sort of stuff. The fact that I would rather drive to the office than work from home speaks volumes.

    Everyone's motivated to do a good job, there's a real team spirit around delivering a quality product that a client is going to love - it feels like everyone just wants to turn out something great which is hugely refreshing

    Cons

    oe:gen is going through a bit of a growth spurt, and sometimes it feels like the odd process is a bit haphazard sometimes as this new structure (I use the term loosely) emerges.
    I wouldn't say it's an issue but it's something to be aware of, especially if you have previously worked in a rigid environment.

    Probably not the best place to work if you are a lover of the corporate world.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything within your power to maintain the "oe:gen feel" as the company grows.
    It's critical to the success of the whole operation.
