    I worked at SFW full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will work on a wide variety of projects with a range of different clients in different sectors, a great way to build experience.

    Many of your colleagues will be of the highest calibre, and there is a lot of emphasis on sharing knowledge amongst each other.

    The company has a great culture of high-performance but in a friendly environment.

    Cons

    As a small(ish) company, it can't match some of the benefits of its larger competitors.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on career development would be good. A lot of people seem to have no idea what they will or won't be doing in 3-5 years as the career paths are not clear.

    IT Recruiter (In-House) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woking, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SFW (Woking, England) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Two stage process. Initial telephone conversation, progressing to a face to face with both HR Manager and COO.

    Overall the Recruitment process was pleasant.

    Hugely let down by generic interview feedback. Especially when they state that candidate experience is a key element of the recruitment process.
