    Pros

    There has been a lot of positive changes in culture.

    Cons

    Upper management is confused on the direction of the company and lack proper understanding of how, and why, they should sell cyber security products. Also HR is the worst.

    Technically interesting but awful culture and minimal management desire to change

    Pros

    Technically interesting, great salary, great pension contributions, 6 weeks leave plus bank holidays.

    Cons

    Management don’t listen to feedback - regular employee surveys revealed same issues, executive team always seemed surprised, promised to make changes, nothing materialised, the cycle repeated. Management make commitments the business can’t possibly hope to meet. Deadlines are agreed without thought to whether there are enough people to do the work and meet existing commitments. Lots of burnout, defensive behaviour, etc, as a result. An example: on one occasion I was told on a Friday afternoon the a feature was needed to be implemented by the Monday morning and that not achieving it was not an option. My team already had other commitments that needed to be met by the end of the week and when I said that one feature would come at the cost of the other, I was told that’s not good enough. This was a common occurrence. Many of the senior managers have worked at Nominet for many years. I got the impression that they had their own little empires and no interest in other ways to work. Rather than take suggestions for improvements and optimisations as positive they were viewed as threats and challenges to these empires.
