    I have been working at Colt Technology Services part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've worked at Colt for over 10 years and I love how seriously inclusion and diversity is taken at a senior level and the opportunities for all employees to get involved. Flexible working policies and the support of several great managers has helped me stay working continuously whilst bringing up my children. I also love the Colt Early years programme which has brought so much creative new talent into the company. The culture has changed for the better over the years and I feel like its a really dynamic, inclusive and exciting place to work. Support for employees during lockdown has been brilliant.

    Cons

    Workload per role has always been intense and has worsened over lockdown with so many video calls and emails.

    Cons

    1/ A lot to get accustomed to as a new starter, might take a short while to adapt to terminologies, systems etc. - perfectly manageable if you're an adaptable person

    Pros

    - Many projects to look at future ways of working, employee experience, I&D - Future looking company and passionate leaders - Young atmosphere - Good support for employees during Covid-19 e.g. financial assistance/safe working allowance - Flexible working hours

    Cons

    - Lack of inter-function cohesion - Aiming hard in lots of different areas but not quite achieving any yet e.g. I&D (black employees will give a very different view to white employees as to whether racism is a problem or not). - Currently in a process of flux and change with new CEO - Low expectations of entry level staff - need to drive progress yourself - Too many complicated tech systems for a company that is tech-savvy

    I have been working at Colt Technology Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    What a better time to write a review than during this unfortunate COVID-19 Pandemic. Colt, the executive team and senior management have handled this extremely well. There has been constant support, WFH funding, almost weekly all-hands led by the CEO, mental health support and so much more. I am very lucky, impressed and proud to work a company that has done everything and more to support their employees during this difficult time. Additional points: - Flexible working enviroment (WFH policy promotes a great work/life balance) - Everybody is super helpful - Great cross communication between executive team and employees - Open to ideas and action-ing promoting growth and change - Identified the importance of diversity and there are initiatives in place to improve this, so the coming year(s) will prove its success

    Cons

    - Sometimes a few too many processes can cause delays

    I have been working at Colt Technology Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good working environment and culture. A company that supports employees that want to progress with an opportunity to learn and also do courses etc. Flexible working which for those with a long commute to work is very helpful. Option to wfh is allowed depending on approval from your line manager. Colt is a company where you will always be learning as it is a progressive global company. Colt is one of the best telco/technology companies I have ever worked for!

    Cons

    None that come to mind right now..
