Tech bowl… so Amazon Fire TVs I had a simple Samsung TV that randomly broke after 3 years. hardware part on inside i think I want to buy another tv but dont want to spend more than $400 if the TV will break again in 3 years If both an Amazon Fire TV ($400) and Samsung picture frame TV (~$1500-2000) will both break in 3 years, i’d rather buy the Amazon Fire Any feedback on this?

-free breakfast -decent people on the front line
-HR is not there for you but for the interests of the company and to the detriment of employees -Clique like culture, if you dont fit you get shafted -Considered normal to work out of hours but get no extra pay -Treated like a tool rather than a human being -Training is the equivalent of watching videos around areas of development -Underpaid across all roles by id say 10 to 25 percent -Is same as a Instagram influencer portraying a fantastic place to work, nice offices , meh benefits and certainly beneficial to your career, until you walk through the door. -if youre asked to go on a night out flatly refuse, yelled and sworn at. -managers seem to have the people skills of a door mat -HR clearly spent more time on creating a gauntlet of tasks for the interview process than any actual support or real training elements What can you expect Well you are a cog and like a cog as soon as they wear you down you will be replaced and sent packing8

Egress is by far the best company I have worked for. I feel like I have a good working relationship with pretty much everyone, and that I have some great progression opportunities lined up. Being a small company, I get exposure to parts of my job that in a larger company it would take years to experience to get to the same stage. Egress also has a pretty good social scene - they pay for socials every month, and recently we've had a sports day, crazy golf, bowling, a pub quiz, and a board game night. We also get to go to Center Parcs every year for the full company update, and a full company meet in London too. Most of the company are also a similar age to me, which I really like.
Most of the time if I have concerns in my job, I can tell someone and they are listened to and dealt with. Communication from management level to the rest of the company as to how we are doing, and what changes are being made is sometimes lacking. If there was an easy way to suggest an idea that will improve something, I think this would be a great idea.6

Good environment and everyone is friendly enough to get along with. Nice London Location and office with good equipment
The entire company has a clique feel to it and there are a select few, mostly sales, who are constantly praised for doing the bare minimum while other employees are ignored. The pay is also awful and they will routinely say that they make up for this in other aspects even though they do not offer anything that another company will not on top of a decent salary. There is also no room for progression as it feels like rather than promoting internally they are more willing to hire pointless middle managers for more money.4

Sheffield Uni new graduates are a great bunch to go to a pub after work. The corporate events are tons of fun and free booze.
The company engages in predatory practices hiring out of Sheffield Uni and running people down until they burn out. The salaries are way below average and the pay raises are in the 2-3% range every year. Past 6 months the new leadership which came from Mimecast got over 40 people sacked in all areas of engineering. The remaining people are expected to deliver what the previous team could not. The company product has little future as it is competing with Microsoft offerings. Everyday drama, favoritism, yelling and toxicity are encouraged by leadership and are a norm. Only work here if you are starving and have no shelter.10

I have worked with few good people in the comany.
Senior management pay money to write great glossador reviews. Hire non techinal guys onto senior technical roles which they are not sure what they does No process - harass for ideas but never implement. Too much partiality and lies.15

- Company Culture - Decent Pay - Friendly Staff - Constantly Busy - Given a lot of responsibility
- Not enough training due to previous placement student not giving enough shadowing sessions
- 5.022 Feb 2021Account ExecutiveCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearLondon, England
- Big recent push over the last year for dedicated Sales Enablement - Good work/life balance - Extremely 'flat' structure, C suite and senior staff easy to reach and happy to help across all levels of the business - Several 'angles' to sell, with a diverse product suite and strong market position - Strong company performance through COVID, no lay-offs, continued promotions
- Pay is slightly below market average for this role, this is slightly compensated for with rapid progression1

1. Most people are good at what they do and are a friendly bunch 2. Company is growing quickly 3. Decent pay
There can sometimes be a bit of pressure to deliver things quickly, but you get that pretty much everywhere.
- 3.018 Jan 2019Customer ServiceFormer Employee, more than 1 yearLondon, England
- The company provides free breakfast, coffee, and other treats - The company pays for socials once every month - The people are friendly and it`s very easy to make friends - Right next to Old Steet station with quick and easy transport links - All technology and computers are modern - Easy to network and progress as long as your willing to put in the time
(Most of these cons are department specific and doesn't reflect the company as a whole) - Lack of training - Employes talking behind other employees backs and not addressing the issue face to face - Lack of 1 to 1s and meetings regarding employees wellbeing and progression - Pay is not competitive compared to what you can get in the area - Expected to stay late sometimes with no compensation (Overtime) - Every day feels the same, solving the same issues with no variety - If something goes wrong no one wants to take responsibility and people will shift the blame3
