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

    Pros

    - Relaxed working culture where employees are encouraged to take responsibility, they're trusted to do their jobs and they aren't micro-managed.

    - Strong understanding from management about the need for work/life balance. This comes in the form of flexible working hours, excellent holiday entitlement and an unprecedented ability (when compared to my previous jobs) to alter pay/time ratios to work less or earn even more time off etc.

    - Incredibly friendly, supportive environment to work in. Culture of information sharing ensures strong support networks when training and performing day-to-day tasks. Weekly staff socials, in addition to numerous special events help engender this sense of being part of a team too.

    - Generous pension scheme and private healthcare.

    - Staff seem to recognise that they are lucky to work in this environment and have a good thing going here. As a result, employees have higher levels of morale, loyalty and respect for the company than you would normally expect to see.

    Cons

    I have worked at TOPdesk for around a month and have therefore only really been exposed to the training programme at this stage. Nothing significant that I could put in this category so far.

    Advice to Management

    From what I have seen so far, it seems that much of TOPdesk's success is due to highly motivated employees, responding to a work culture which places trust in them and rewards them with options for a great work/life balance. Don't change this!!

    Lead Generation Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TOPdesk in May 2017.

    Interview

    At a job fair they took in my CV, offered me an interview the next week. The interview itself was two people, one head recruiter from Manchester that was on a Skype call kind of thing and a team leader from London. Second interview was offered the same day. Interview had a lot of focus on educational choices ie, why my degree or why those subjects in gcse etc.
