    I worked at Assystem full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff at Assystem are fantastic! There are some immensely talented engineers, project, and back office staff who really make it a great place to work. If in the right areas there are fantastic opportunities for travel and development both nationally and internationally. New offices are great, much better atmosphere and definitely looking to adopt agile working thanks to a fantastic and huge leap forward in the IT team.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a lack of communication but it is something that was being actively improved during my tenure at the business and was improving constantly.

    Pros

    Talented engineers SOME excellent managers Opportunity for international involvement The business has significant growth aspirations

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

    Pros

    Really actually can’t think of any.

    Cons

    This agency is poor. Don’t reply to emails, take an age to provide a contract for services leaving you without pay. My contract leaves me no choice but to chase the employment business for wages despite the agencies fault. Would like to escalate this to county court level.
