Pros
  • good work life balance possible (in 10 reviews)

  • Flat hierarchy, Agile methodology followers (in 4 reviews)

Cons
  • The company is probably not as well recognised as it should and hopefully will be for the good people it has and work it does (in 3 reviews)

  • No cons that I can think of, the only thing I would say is that the recruitment process took a long time but it's definitely worth persevering (in 3 reviews)

    I have been working at Equal Experts (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Although EE are a company that is staffed mainly by contractors (75%) you would never know this.

    They say they are a company of grown ups and this is definitely the case, structure is flat, everyone is trusted to do their jobs and there is none of the usual politics or nonsense you get in almost all other companies.

    As an associate (contractor) you really get the best of all worlds as you get paid great day rates and have a fantastic support network and welcoming culture.

    If you are a contractor at the top of your game then look no further, if you are thinking of going contracting then look no further. EE is the place to be

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - I'm proud to work with EE

    Pros

    - Life work balance and Flexibility
    - Very kind and understanding Senior management team
    - Highly skilled, professional and resourceful company

    Cons

    - Visibility on internal vacancies could be improved
    - They gain lots of traction and their clients have big expectations. But not all their teams are at full capacity. Regardless of that they manage very well to move forward no matter the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Aim to supply your teams always. Make sure all your dev teams have a business analyst close to them and they have all they need. Improve the visibility of your internal vacancies.

    I have been working at Equal Experts full-time

    Pros

    Equal Experts brings a refreshing twist to the standard IT consultancy. It puts together talented professionals, caring people and exciting projects. You have the flexibility to try new things without the corporate noise to hinder every idea or initiative.
    But what is most impressive is the care for each and every one of its employees (associates or permanent).

    Cons

    The sudden growth exceeded everyone's expectations, and now the admin side is catching up. A good problem to have

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Genuinely inspiring people work here.
    Great projects.
    All projects modern and Agile
    They employ or contract great people and let them get on with it
    No rigid structure.

    Cons

    Might be nice to hear about the other project / teams a bit more

    Advice to Management

    Don't lower the bar! This is working great. And thanks for having me.

    Pros

    It's a fantastic and supportive environment. I am surrounded by people that are great at what they do and it's true what they say, it's a company of grown-ups.

    Cons

    There's no career progression, as there is a flat hierarchy - but that's not a con, because I like the flat hierarchy but could be seen as a negative to others.

    I have been working at Equal Experts (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    EE provides the opportunity to grow and learn every day no matter how experienced you are. The flat structure means everyone can put forward an idea and if it's good, you make it happen. I love working with grown ups but we still have fun. The company is growing and changing so rapidly but the specialness which is EE is still there

    Cons

    Keeping on top of all the new business as it changes all the time

    Advice to Management

    We must keep reminding ourselves why we were founded and we must never forget the value of non-technical people too who work with technical people to make this company such a success in the wonderful world of technology

    Pros

    All senior members at the top of their game so there is a huge pool of wealth and knowledge to both feed into and learn from. Contractors are treated the same and permanent senior employees from the start. All ideas, thoughts and suggestions for improvements are valued and you will have the opportunity to work with all the latest technologies with some large well known clients.

    Cons

    Multiple geographical locations can be a challenge when trying to put a face to a name. Given both the calibre of contractors at Equal Experts and the client base, there is little known about the company unless you have had dealings with them before.

    Keep doing what you're doing and shout about it more

    Pros

    Everyone is highly experienced and professional, all are good, some are scarily good :)
    Literally no bulls****, not politics, very little hierarchy
    Interesting clients and projects
    Great corporate culture (good work life balance, nice people, no divas, no slackers, just nice and normal people you are happy to work with)

    Cons

    Not sure I can think of anything
    EE are quite tech heavy (though they do understand the need for user centered design where applicable) so this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but that's not really a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do!
