"Fantastic place to work"

Aug 10, 2021 - Media Manager
Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Fantastic supportive workplace in a company that's always looking to push the boundaries of what's possible. Willing to give people a chance to take responsibility when they have good ideas,

Cons

Might be slightly top-heavy with their hiring policy - more junior execs might improve work-life balance and there are loads of unpolished diamonds out there.

Advice to Management

Keep promoting from within, that's where the true TSW talent comes from.
