    Pros

    Very honest culture, with great emphasis on driving growth and improvement both for their clients and for themselves.

    Cons

    Growing pains of a scaling company. As a small consultancy, they are more susceptible to the whim of available client work. Expect to be sent and pulled from clients at short notice.

    I worked at ECS Digital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits of working for good companies and thus good tech stack exposure.

    Cons

    Usual consultancy stuff, having two employers essentially. The client and the consultancy and you're in the middle trying to make them both happy. The consultancy has an expectation on you helping them with placements, blog posts and other PR stuff. No real engineering/development options.

    Pros

    This is the first company I've worked for, where you can actually decide what technology you want to work in. If you are new to it, you can even benefit from the numerous trainings made available to you. The managment genuinely seems to care about employee satisfaction, weekly surveys and 'open-to-chat-anytime' attitude from senior management proves this. Social get togethers, company rewards and bonus are added benefits :) Add to that the fact that every collegue I've met is super helpful!!

    Cons

    None that I can think of now.

    Pros

    This is a small company, although recently it has undergone a lot of growth. As a result, you do not experience the kind of artificial career restraint that other companies will impose. If something makes sense, you can get it done with support very quickly, and you will receive fast feedback on your actions. You will get to work with an experienced team who are absolutely passionate about doing a great job for the customer. Fast moving technology changes mean that you will be expected to pick up and master cutting edge DevOps tools. If you are a self starter who doesn't want to work in a conventional company (who would, given the choice?), this is a great place to build your career. The management are incredibly employee focussed, and your well being and development is at the heart of what they believe in. I've heard this before and it turned out to be hype, but here is really is true.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be able to hide, you will be hired based on your capability and what you can add here, so there isn't much room for passengers.
