    I have been working at Camelot Global full-time

    Pros

    Been with the company for about 1.5 years. Seen a lot of good progress during this period (new CEO about 10 months ago that set a clear vision). Management keen to get everyone onboard on the journey and they listen on suggestions on how to improve. So very happy. + Good pay and package + CEO and exec team keen to move it forward + Owners that believe in the company and keep investing + Moving to a very nice office...

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

      Pros

      We’re a small business so everyone knows everyone; it does feel like a start up, but in terms of technology, process and people, doesn’t behave like one. There are some really talented and nice people to work with at the ground level. We’re in a great area in Central London. Salaries and packages are very competitive. There is so much opportunity to expand and grow if we get things right.

      Cons

      There are some very obvious challenges with capability, people have been promoted in the last reorg without the skills and experience necessary to do those jobs. Because of this, results tend to take place in spite of senior management and not because of them. There is very little focus on people, culture or behaviours; there are some posters on the wall. Performance issues are not generally managed and people are...

      Advice to Management

      Start engaging with all levels of the organisation to obtain honest feedback about how things really are at Global. Identify who is adding value, who is capable of adding value and who is going to be a barrier to future success. Admit there are some challenges. Make some brave decisions.

      I worked at Camelot Global full-time

      Pros

      - Other software engineers tend to be nice - Location is central if you work in Holborn (otherwise you're in the middle of nowhere)

      Cons

      Be ready to: - work with the same dated tech stack until you quit - gather positive evidence of doing what you're paid for, and supply it at reviews - threaten resignations to keep your salary at market levels - see months of work going down the drain because they could not make decision - bite your tongue, this is not an open and honest environment - do one of the most boring jobs in your career - be on call at...

      Outsource *all* your software production to a sweatshop overseas, or alternatively go find yourselves a job in manufacturing

      I worked at Camelot Global full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good shuttle links from the station

      Cons

      I have to say this is potentially the worst company I have ever worked for. Recruitment ( whom I sat very close to ) make promises they truly cannot keep. I have heard them many times telling potential employees benefits and promises for the future which either do not exist or are actually completely false! Managers are completely unaware of what they are doing and are actually arrogant and in reality complete bullies...

      Advice to Management

      Please just tear down the company and start again. The only place Global is going is down not up!!

      I worked at Camelot Global full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They have a class act in recruitment and get great people through the door, who know what they are doing and are eager to get stuck in and make a difference. Their vision for the company is spot on, and goes to the heart of exactly what they should be doing. They have great opportunities in front of them globally, and the right people to take advantage of them.

      Cons

      There is a massive cultural and mental divide between their operations in Holborn, Watford and Athens. These worlds could not be further apart. Their senior management drops the company vision at every opportunity, going for short term gain or customer appeasement over long term benefits of the business. Poor decision making, and lack of willingness to actually make decisions other than by committee, leading to major...

      Advice to Management

      Stick to your guns on your long term vision - when a customer asks a lottery company to build something for sports betting, you are doing them as well as you a favor by telling them to go elsewhere. Trust your development teams - the expensive ones that you take time and effort to hire. Trust them more than the cheap and easy labour you hire without effort overseas - the expensive ones are expensive for a reason. ...
