    Pros

    great work life balance average salary great people

    Cons

    Senior Management previously drove most sales people away in 2016 In 2017 on wards they have been hiring inexperienced people to make up for the loss of the experienced ones. So you have 3 people in a team carrying the targets of 6 people.

    Pros

    Great people, office & product. Leadership has improved recently too! Less Steve McClaren and more Brian Clough

    Cons

    Some shocking senior management in the past, however this has improved recently. Largely finance driven which can be frustrating.

    I worked at Colt Technology Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. Very corporate, polished and professional. Some great people working there although the ones who made it a great place to work have mostly left

    Cons

    Constant change of direction leave staff wondering if they know what senior management know what they are doing (clearly they don't). CEO was ok bloke but should have gone years ago. Same old with current CEO. Colt continues to wander aimlessly in markets dominated by companies who have clear strategies and stick to them

    I worked at Colt Technology Services for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, some industry respected subject matters experts, service delivery really committing to customers, flexible working (although this was dependent on your individual manager).

    Cons

    Divisions working in silos, poor senior management, trying to 'bespoke' everything for customers made extra work for lots of teams. Chasing revenue, even if no margin in that business at year end. Lack of corporate identity.

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

    Pros

    Salary- highly competitive; Private Health, Shopping Discounts & Vouchers. Environment and values-highly competitive internal environment and highly political. Keep head down and do not rock the boat mentality.

    Cons

    To exhausted to use the private health, gym, bike discount and vouchers. Micro management, Haphazard marketing, portfolio & product road map planning. Senior Management making up new products without proper investigating and research just because Gartner said our competitors are providing specific unprofitable offerings. Ad Hoc Leadership and People Management. Slow, lack of structure and not using latest methodologies like Agile etc.

    1. Frequent changes on senior management happens.
