    I have been working at Web Applications UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly, helpful and willing to get stuck in. Web Applications is a company that encourages employees to learn, grow and become better developers.
    Everyone gets a say in how a particular development should be undertaken through the Solutions Stand up.
    Soft drinks and coffee are free for everyone to help themselves, plus there's a breakfast bar which includes cereals, bagels and toast - so no excuses for missing the most important meal of the day.
    The management team are amazing and really take a vested interest in the staff.
    The CEO can be scary and intimidating at first, however a lot of the comments on here are not fair. The invitation to have a private word is always open, and he will always justify a decision that has been made.
    As a developer you truly get experience in every area of development as you are assigned various roles on any particular development.
    The Senior Managers and Directors have all been promoted internally, the majority of which started off as developers themselves which I think is really encouraging for my own career prospects.
    You can take days off with very little notice using SHIELD and make the time back over the weekend, this has come in handy a few times. Plus you have the option of taking up to 2 days a month working from home. I'd love to see more perks added such as a bonus Birthday holiday like many other companies are now offering.

    Cons

    Can't think of too many as usually when conflict arises, it is dealt with in a quick and reasonable manner.
    The solutions stand up could do with some fine tuning to ensure that everyone gets a say and that we don't spend too long discussing cases in too much detail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in young people and helping developed the careers of talented developers.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oldham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Web Applications UK (Oldham, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter sent my application over to the company and I was invited to a technical test. The test was one hour and it covered both SQL and OOP. After the one hour test, two developers came and discussed with me the answers for 2 more hours and then I was invited to the final interview with Craig Dean. This last interview was something else, Craig is a very interesting and smart person.
