Ben - Account Manager

I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of York. I took on a couple of internships after graduating, but when I came to looking for a full time career I knew I wanted to work for a technology firm with lots of potential. I came across TPP when I saw them in the Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for, so I knew they were a cut above the rest. I decided to apply when I did more research into how they were expanding internationally, working in two areas that were of great interest to me - technology and healthcare.
The work I’m doing here provides everything I wanted out of a career: Continued learning and development, the opportunities to build relationships and having a mixture between both technical and commercial work. At the moment I’m mostly working on the Middle-east projects, trying to expand TPP into the markets out there. It gives the work a real feeling of a ‘start-up’ company, and it’s been really exciting to see the company grow thanks to some of the relationships I’ve helped to build.
My work allows me to work autonomously, giving me the ability to manage my own workload and take on more responsibility than at any other firm I have had experience with. I’ve led meetings that I wouldn’t have even been invited to anywhere else – meeting multiple Ministries of Health, leaders of Public Health England and presenting to boards of directors.
The surrounding area of Leeds is great for maintaining all my hobbies. The nearby Yorkshire Dales is great for people like me who love getting outdoors and Leeds City Centre has a great music scene for attending gigs, or listening to live bands in one of your local bars.
Working at TPP has given me the confidence to do business anywhere in the world, taking me to places that I would never have the chance to see otherwise.

Daisy - Business Analyst

I studied Biomedical sciences at UCL and applied for TPP after graduating. The Business Analyst role seemed perfect for me as I’d always been interested in the healthcare industry and the work they are doing in China offered the chance for me to use my language and cultural background.
In my team, we analyse requirements from users and scope the corresponding development requests to deliver a better product. Since joining, I’ve loved getting involved in international projects in cities like Ninghai and Huizhou as well as working on a Wechat appointment booking website. My current project is really exciting as I’m working on our patient App which will improve patient engagement with their healthcare provider.
My favourite thing about the job is that I face different challenges every day, using my problem solving and language skills to tackle these alongside an intelligent and helpful team. We also get a great range of perks: an amazing salary, 2 weeks off at Christmas and annual sailing trips.

Moji - Software Developer

I studied Engineering at Cambridge, and started at TPP straight after graduating. I really enjoy coding, so I decided to look for jobs in software development. TPP stood out to me in my job search was that it wasn’t just about making software, but making software that had a huge impact on people’s lives.

Working at TPP actually feels more relaxed than university. Because of the way uni was structured, I never really had “time off”, as I had to carry on studying even through the holidays. At TPP, there’s no pressure to continue working past the closing time, and we are not allowed to take work home. This means that you can spend the day being focused on working efficiently, and then truly have the evenings and weekends off. Also, even though the company is split into lots of little teams, it still feels like one big team - we all help each other and are accountable to each other.

Since joining TPP, I have worked on a number of projects. Every couple of months, we change teams, and that certainly keeps things exciting! My first project involved developing machine learning tools to help with the early detection of cancer. I’m now working to improve healthcare in prisons.

The extracurricular side of TPP is great. I enjoy playing the guitar, and TPP actually has a free guitar lesson once a week, which I go to, and it’s been really useful.

    I have been working at TPP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Having been here a very long time it would be easy to say things have become humdrum - but they haven't! Quite the contrary, we're now entering probably the most exciting time I've ever seen at the company. We've set our minds to and opened up some fantastic opportunities in the past 12-18 months that'll not only propel the company further, but promise to be very challenging and inspirational.

    Of course, the salary and perks are fab, but I'm somewhat used to that by now. What I find really unique is the quality of the people I work with, everyone from the newest to my oldest colleagues is super bright and dedicated to the work we're doing, which just makes the work day a breeze, even though we have to work on some really hard and stressful stuff. In fact, the newest starters are the ones that constantly amaze me - they're definitely quicker and brighter than me! Luckily there's enough new stuff for me to learn and try so I'm not quite obsolete.

    I like that we've managed to hold on to the startup vibe but also have a great work-life balance.

    In summary, the pros are: assorted (many!) perks excellent, working on something that is really going to make a massive positive difference for the world, working with people who share the same mindset, and still being able to develop into new roles.

    Cons

    Scraping the barrel here really, but...

    The flat hierarchy means there's a lot of responsibility on everyone, so you can spend a lot of time worrying about things that you're not directly working on, or end up knackered from thinking about 10 different things in a day.

    Being away from home and some of the longer journeys can be draining, but we do stay in comfortable places and get time off in return so I can't really complain too much.

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TPP (Leeds, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After reading the horror stories about the rudeness of interviews at TPP, I was expecting the worst and braced myself as best I could. In fairness, the interviews are very blunt and cold, if you do not make it to the next stage they will tell you 'Thanks, thats all we need for today', and then email you a rejection a few days later. I applied for the Commercial Manager role and made it through two interviews before hearing that phrase and being sent home. The questions they ask are deliberately designed to throw you off, so prepare to hold your nerve if you have an interview with TPP. I found a decent technique was to try and lead the interview as best you can, ask them where they would like you to sit, practically force them to shake your hand etc... Unfortunately I fell down on one of the logic problems, which I will detail below.

    The building itself has a very weird era, even if I had passed the interviews it's not a place I would choose to work! 28k is certainly generous, but I got the feeling the job would be very cold.

    Interview Questions

    • A logic problem about marbles in a bag.
      Another logic about egg timers.
      Invite four celebrities to come dine with me...
      Who do you like more, me or the other interviewer?

      I had a marketing background as experience and they very bluntly asked me why on earth I had applied for Commercial Manager!   1 Answer
