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

    Pros

    Fantastic people to work with - feels more like a group of friends than colleagues sometimes!

    Everyone is always willing to help each other - can happily say no one is toxic or someone who i dislike.

    Constantly learning new things: as someone who really cares about gaining knowledge - there isn't a day where i don't learn something new.

    Free food, drinks, gym membership, open bars ( good use is made out of that)

    Constant social nights out - going to restaurants, sponsored runs, dodge ball the list is endless!

    Management actually cares about you. All the directors are approachable and sometimes can sit down with you for hours explaining stuff. One of them in particular deserves a noble prize for the amount of work he does.

    Customer first approach - focus on the best solution - not the quickest.

    Full stack environment means you get a good front end experience as well as back end.

    Constant training, learning new and exciting topics.

    Opportunities to attend technology events across the UK - fully paid for.

    Chance to do exams to achieve certifications and have those exams paid for you.

    One job many roles policy which is fantastic for experience.

    Company first business second.

    DOGS! ;)

    Cons

    some of the policies seem ridiculous. Employees who have built up a lot of trust and have proven themselves are heavily restricted in what they can/can't do. I understand that certain rules are there to protect us. But i think certain people should be able to earn the right to be able to given more trust/permission

    It can be stressful sometimes. Especially when doing something high priority.

    New services that we offer still need further refinement

    Few outdated technologies still in use (ASP sucks - it just does)

    Big focus on support. some days half of the dev's are on support! whilst i understand the reason behind this, i think more time should be given for experimentation with new technologies/ trying different products - though i had raised this before and it feels like its slowly being listened too!

    Advice to Management

    trust your employees - give us more responsibility and stop micromanaging all the mini aspects of our lives.

    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.
