    I worked at Enable International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I recently moved from Enable after working there in the sales team operating as an account executive for the past two years. I really enjoyed working for Andrew (CEO) along with everyone else at Enable, especially the sales team. Andrew really has done an amazing job instilling such a fantastic culture within the company. Everyone does what they can to ensure Enable operates to the best of its ability in order to deliver industry leading results to customers. There are very strong inter-departmental relationships within the company which has led to a slick internal operation. Everyone works for and with one another to get the best results possible. It is a relatively flat structure internally meaning management are easily accessible. All ideas are listened to and adopted if it makes sense to do so. Everyone is enthusiastic and passionate about what they are doing and truly believe that future product developments will majorly enhance their already brilliant product offering which will ultimately benefit the customer. Enable provides a welcoming and modern working environment. They offer plenty of training and support to drive professional development. You are given the opportunity to really develop your skills and thrive at Enable. However, Enable isn’t all work. They also look after employees in other ways, including: · providing a “Chill-Out Zone” with video games and board games, · a fully stocked fridge for employees’ daily lunches, · ongoing monthly social events, · weekly sporting activities, · both a Summer and Christmas company outing and more. I really appreciate the opportunities I was given whilst working for such a forward thinking, fast growing and industry leading company. I would highly recommend working at Enable, it is an amazing company to work with. Enable is doing some VERY BIG things right now, watch this space!!

    Cons

    I genuinely haven't a bad word to say against Enable. It is a great company.

    Parking can be tricky if most colleagues are in the office - working from home is ok though.

    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 good terms and I will never forget their great attitude. Enable is a company that is growing fast and is really going places.

    Cons

    Honestly, there is no downside that I can think of...

    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 with management are provided, and feedback is listened to and acted upon, no matter your level in the company. - Time is regularly committed for skills development. In particular for new developers there is generally little expectation of prior experience, and always new opportunities to develop skills further. - No expectation or culture of overtime - I have never had to stay late since I started. - A friendly team culture where everybody is willing to help and share knowledge. - Free lunch! - Good social events, both during lunch hour and after work - often at least partially paid for by the company. - Supports charities through regular dress-down days and other one-off events.

    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.

    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 and other activities - be it additional training or support work. All tasks go through a time estimation process before being assigned, so generally there is always a good amount of work to do in a day, not too little or too much. This allows us to always deliver projects on time to a high standard with minimal stress. The team is friendly and approachable, and are always willing to answer questions. In my time with Enable, there isn't anyone I've had difficulty working with. There is good communication between team members when on project, with morning stand-ups to ensure we are all know what work we are doing. There is a definite push for Enable employees to strike a good work life balance. Employees are encouraged to work for the time that their contract stipulates and not to work late. In addition, taking shorter lunch breaks to leave earlier, for example, is allowed on an ad-hoc basis. Throughout the year, there are regular social events. There are regular board and video game evenings, as well as larger monthly socials. At lunchtimes, there are groups playing video and board games. As well as this, there are monthly dress-down days and other charitable fundraisers, for which the company also contributes. The office is a relaxing place to work in. Each employee has plenty of space at their desk; the furniture is comfortable to use for long periods of time; there is plenty of light and airflow throughout the building.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    One of the very best companies in terms of career development, especially for graduates. They pay really well, and the whole team is of a particularly high calibre so there's a lot of on the job learning as well as dedicated training/CPD.

    Cons

    Hard work is expected. Deadlines are quite tight and must be hit. The company doesn't do late project delivery.
