    I have been working at Defaqto full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I not only enjoy the work but the company is so versatile, helping me out whenever they can. To provide an excellent work life balance they will change my hours and allow me to work from home at the drop of a hat if I need it. With the current lockdown in the UK they managed to get everyone working from home even before the lockdown began. They still provider IT support and have allowed us all the equipment etc we need to make our lives easier.

    Cons

    It's a small company so as my working life experience is with large companies I find that I worry more about keeping my job but this is more to do with the economic climate than the company themselves.

    Defaqto Response

    Head of HR

    Yes during lockdown this has certainly been a worrying time, but I think we have all adapted really well. The flexibility is great and works both ways it brings the best out in people :-) Thank you for your review
