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

    Pros

    -Working around some really smart people who are very passionate about what they do
    -Incredibly Enabling environment, if you have an idea as long as you have the ability / drive you can make it happen
    - The clues in the name individuals and ideas are given the 'equal' respect no matter what the job title
    -Client focused approach, at all levels of the business employees seem dedicated to provide quality and value to their clients

    Cons

    I enjoy going to work every day, Equal Experts employee people at experienced / senior level and they expect you to lead the way in your field. This is great but could be intimidating for some.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good stuff, some more staff nights out might be nice!

    Pros

    If you want to be surrounded by egoless, intelligent and collaborative colleagues, Equal Experts is perfect for you. The network is extremely helpful and friendly, and it's a place you'll be certain to form long lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Due to internal changes you sometimes feel like they don't really know what's going on with a lot of things themselves, but they are growing rapidly, so it's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all the good work you're doing with restructuring EE. But don't let yourself get swallowed by process and become rigid! The ad-hoc and dynamic style of EE as a business is what keeps it personal and a great place to work.

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

    Pros

    I'm working with the most experienced group of people it's ever been my pleasure to work with. As Equal Experts looks at values as part of the recruitment process, I'm also working with some of the nicest, most pragmatic people as well. This makes delivery as easy as it ever can be and a lot of fun to boot.

    If you've got enough experience and you want to work in a caring, fun, interesting team then take a good look at these guys. I liked them so much I went permie after thinking that I'd never do that again.

    The flat structure makes it really easy to discuss anything with anyone. Even the MD is available for anyone to talk to. Show me another company where you can say that.

    The associate networks means that, if you want to, you can go off and do something else for a while and then be welcomed back at any time (providing there's an open role, obviously).

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going guys

    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

    I worked at Equal Experts (Less than a year)

    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.

    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
