    I have been working at Administrate full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Nice, supportive colleagues. Company that cares for its people. A lot of learning opportunities. Career development opportunities.

    Cons

    Nothing to add here. All good.

  2. "Ultimate Human Organization"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Software Engineer 

    I have been working at Administrate full-time

    Pros

    I love what we're doing, love the people, I can work flexibly around my life, we're always looking to improve (ourselves, our processes and the platform). No workplace is perfect but this is definitely the best place I've worked.

    Cons

    Things move at a million miles an hour, normal for this type of business and where we are on the journey, but it can be relentless and exhausting, particularly through 2020 and working from home. Not for everyone, especially if you're not used to that level of pace.

    I have been working at Administrate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work with great people and a great management that cares about its people and pushes you to grow and learn

    Cons

    Growing pains - as the company is growing into an enterprise-only platform in a tough EdTech market, things could get frustrating at times.

    I have been working at Administrate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic work-life balance 4-day work week but compensated for 5 (no gotchas). Really make an effort to adhere to the values listed on the website. I feel trusted, that my opinion matters and that I'm not being watched over, second-guessed or belittled.

    Cons

    On a personal level, found it difficult to get excited by the product.

    I have been working at Administrate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked in several jobs over the past twenty years, in various industries; all SaaS or IT-service related. Without a doubt, Administrate is the most enjoyable job I've had in that time; the people, culture, pace and attitude all adds up to be the perfect combination. The company truly believes in, and acts according to its values; when I was applying here, and learned about "the values", to my British ears is sounded corny, but seeing it in action, it just feels natural; it's rare to have a work conversation where someone doesn't mention one of them. We have a four-day working week and some flexible working, which really helps with childcare; a really sustainable work-life balance. All departments are very responsible to our customers, but without losing sight of the long-term strategic goals. It's fast paced and challenging, but tremendously good fun, too. We have an in-house therapist and life-coach who can offer mental health support when needed - it's all part of us being "The Ultimate Human Organisation" I've enjoyed working here so much that I've managed to recruit several of my former colleagues to come here too.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons to working here

    I have been working at Administrate full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company values are what you want and need from your employer. 4 day working week is a fantastic investment in their staff and they really do care about you. Prepare to be challenged, but in a realistic and fulfilling way. Great perks including share options for employees.

    Cons

    You may not get the top salary the market has to offer, but you do only have to work 4 days, and that extra day is worth so much more.
