    I worked at Enable International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I worked at Enable for 8 years and felt part of a dedicated team that was well supported by management. We were creating software solutions using the best tools and engineering practices. I left the company to start my own business which was a tough decision to make. The management understood my reasoning, offered their support and told me I would be welcome to return any time. It was hugely reassuring to part on such...

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

    Pros

    Staff - All staff are friendly and professional. In all the years I have worked for Enable, I have never witnessed any conflicts between employees. The majority of developers are also very willing to help others with solving any problems encountered. There is certainly a good relationship between team members. Environment - The offices are contemporary and well maintained (they are cleaned daily). Ability to focus...

    - Working hours are quite long - You may feel pressure to complete tasks due to timescales being assigned to all types of work.

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

    Pros

    - The ability to focus. Developers never have to communicate directly with clients, and projects are carefully scoped and scheduled meaning no crunch time and clear goals. Additionally there is a clear delineation between days on project and days working on support (generally 4 days on project, 1 day on support), so development doesn't need to drop everything when a support ticket comes in. - Regular one-to-one time...

    Cons

    - Working hours can be quite long (8:30 - 5:30), although no overtime required means you get to leave work on time. - Limited opportunities for remote working (currently only 3 days a year). - Could do more to be environmentally friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Enable has a great company culture, and it is important to ensure that this culture doesn't get sacrificed as the company looks to grow further.

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

    Pros

    I joined Enable straight after university, coming from a non-development background. Despite this, the comprehensive training program allowed me to start on project work after just a few weeks. The training period included daily workshops with members of the team, as well as enjoyable programming challenges that incorporate the technologies that we use in our solutions. There is a good balance between project work...

    Cons

    Some of the older solutions use outdated technologies which can be frustrating to work with.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to see more done to reduce the environmental footprint of the company. For example, using energy from renewable sources, buying less individually wrapped food, having more plant-based and less meat options at lunch, encouraging cycling/car share/public transport.
