      Pros

      Working with fun and clever colleagues, good work/ life balance, flexible working, good social life.

      Cons

      Benefits are quite basic and the salary is definitely below industry standard. There are no clear career development opportunities. Not enough recognition given to colleagues who have performed well. Some senior management don't appear to do very much, all talk and no action. Office is in an awkward location by Battersea Bridge.

      Pros

      Great team and environment in the London office, very open and honest culture. Senior managers/directors are very busy but approachable. Work-life balance is ok.

      Cons

      Very small teams means less space for growth, there's no place to step away from your desk to have lunch, flexible working could be improved.

      Pros

      Good pay & benefits, career progression, good work/life balance promoted, inspirational people, diversity embraced, "work hard play hard" mentality.

      Cons

      Can be a little corporate, not necessarily a "cool" brand to work for (and often unknown in Europe).
