    Cons

    Standard Workplace Pension No other "common" benefits such as private healthcare, car allowance, gym memberships , pet insurance etc. - However you can get these type of things discounted using the perk system, so it balances itself out a little.

    Advice to Management

    The field technicians get travel claims, but no form of official allowance. In public sector or in other tech firms, field technicians tend to get an allowance of £1000 a year on top of their claims. This goes towards the wear, tear and depreciation of thier own vehicle.

    I have been working at Netbuilder full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * Great way to get your foot in the door in the IT industry * The culture of the company feels very young and fun, but also professional * Hard work and determination always gets noticed and will get you far * The training offered is applicable in many different areas of IT and Business * Trainers make an effort to get to know each trainee's personality and strengths/weaknesses * If you're American, you will probably get to go to England, which is just bloody brilliant mate

    Cons

    * Decisions are made very quickly * You may be trained in a specialization that is so new that it doesn't have a trainer or much material to learn from * Must be geographically flexible * It can feel like you have no control of your own fate, which is a con for life in general

    Current Employee - Delivery Team Member in Brighton, England
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Netbuilder full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Had a fantastic feeling of comradery within the Delivery Centre, great communication and very strong leadership on-site. Solid processes and very clear plan of delivery from the project managers, with integrated support from testing and all developers - a real team spirit. Used to have lots of social events and Friday Meeting with Head of Delivery was always enjoyable.

    Cons

    Only had one customer. Lost that customer. We all lost our jobs. Either bad insight by senior management or poor sales but company crumbled beneath their feet.

    Advice to Management

    Get more than one customer. Get a sales team. Don't rely on one account manager. Show appreciation to your staff and don't leave it to project managers or Delivery Manager to give feedback.
