    I have been working at Auction Technology Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Quite nice environment to work at full of friendly people and management, who tends to go above and beyond to make sure feel comfortable with what you are doing

    Cons

    Some processes take longer that it could due to how the workload is managed.

    Like most companies, sprint feature creep is an issue.

    Pros

    ATG has one of the best cultures I have ever experienced in a working environment. Very collaborative and transparent. The senior management are extremely approachable and there isn't a boundary separating them for other staff members. They are very down to earth. Overall the company is very innovative snd always open to new ideas and feedback for improvement. If you are looking for a place to work where they value your opinion, trust you and not micromanaging you then look no further. This is an amazing place to work for anyone.

    Cons

    Hard to think of many. The only downside would be not having as many meeting rooms available as i was previously used to. However this presents an opportunity to explore the local work offices and cafes for informal meetings which is always good.

    I have been working at Auction Technology Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On the tech side, we've moved to Azure and trying to leverage as many services as we can so a great learning experience and new work uses microservice patterns as well as serverless. Also a place where you can really influence those new services and patterns. Our teams are small and everyone has the power to contribute and expected to be Dev/QA/DevOps/Architect, it's about delivering as a team. Management changed about a year ago for the better with a new CTO, focusing on craftsmanship and allowing freedom within engineering to make change.

    Cons

    There's still a lot to do, we are transitioning from monolith to microservices and that is not easy and at times we do have to be pragmatic and go slower than we'd love to as engineers as its a 24/7 global eCommerce company. With small teams there's no where to hide so naturally expectations are high so you do have to work hard. But that is rewarded with flexibility and recognition and the chance to make more of a difference

    I worked at Auction Technology Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They use cloud solutions and some of the projects use new technologies. Good opportunity to learn new stuff some time.

    Cons

    Very toxic environment. The new CTO have very bad leadership style. He operate in a dictatorial manner. So some time you think your in the army not in a company. You will feel you are always watched by managers who micromanage everything, CTO and the others.

    I worked at Auction Technology Group full-time

    Pros

    - Not the worst place you could work at - Some good people - Huge potential

    Cons

    - They don't understand their customers. If they spent less time worrying about conforming to processes and just used some common sense, they would be ahead of the market. - Slowly dying company as all the talent gradually gives up and leaves. Those that remain (that are not looking for a new job) are the ones killing the business. - Will never reach their potential. - Bleak outlook with dying products

    The lack of space for a break out or eating space has been an issue and one that fell out of our recent engagement survey. We're delighted now to have a great space to eat, catch up or just get away from the desk, with some epic views of St Paul's and the Shard.

    Thanks for the great review! Its a great place for ALL people, not just younger workers. Our policies benefit everyone, especially those around work life balance, which don't just apply to our working parents and carers.
