    I have been working at Flash Pack full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Incredible team, not one person I wouldn't vouch for - Inspirational and approachable founders and a senior management team who really care - Lots of opportunity for growth at all levels – if you're the sort of person who will find it and pursue it - You will be pushed out of your comfort zone, ultimately leading to broader and deeper industry experience, on a fast track other companies can't provide - This is a scale-up. It can be a bit intense but if, like me, you thrive off pressure and a band of brothers style camaraderie, you'll like it - The freedom to actually make an idea happen, without red tape, politics or BS - Great office, pet-friendly, free snacks, social events and lots of laughs

    Cons

    - No serious cons from me, but maybe some advice on things others might list: - Like I said, this is a start-up moving into scale-up – it's fast-paced, intense and sometimes unpredictable. But this comes with the territory of start-up life – and keeps you on your A-game :) - Decisions can be made very last-minute, which might seem unfair or poorly-led, but it always comes with good intention and often because we're reacting fast to new information. You just gotta roll with it sometimes. - Senior management team went through a period of being a bit disconnected from those below – but I've always found the leadership team to be really open to feedback and they were quick to address it. - No business is perfect, things can go wrong and mistakes can be made (and it can feel really crap!) but, when it does hit the fan, the WHOLE business pulls together to find the best solution. Never seen it like that anywhere else.

    I worked at Flash Pack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - I worked with some really inspiring, intelligent and talented individuals. - Lots of perks (however, some of these were taken away whilst I worked there) - Team building activities and events. - Exposure to a great variety of work experience.

    Cons

    - Promised many things that were never delivered. - I constantly felt patronised and insecure about my position. - Stressful and competitive culture. - No room for growth despite being sold a plethora of opportunities. - Employees fired without notice and reasons often vague/unprofessional. - Over-ambitious goals for company sales and growth. - CEO's very money-oriented and will not accept criticism of their company.

    Pros

    Great culture, fun environment, lunches provided, monthly master of fun, and a cuddly dog or 2!

    Cons

    Like any start-up environment, there are often many changes along the way - sometimes they work, sometimes they don't; That's all part of embracing start up challenges. Its a great self learning curve.

    - Friendly culture with a genuine sense of comradeship. - Office dogs. - Fantastic open door policy. There are no strict office politics. - Great food and monthly pop-us (Mac n Cheese anyone??) - Ambitious and caring ownership. Lee & Radha are extremely inspiring people to work for.

I have taken on new projects and learned a variety of new skills. - Office dogs. - Unbelievable office in the center of London with views of the Shard. - Great communication which transcends departments. A fun weekly All-Hands which keeps everyone in the loop and a month coffee buddy system which allows you to connect to people across the company. - Fun monthly work events such as crazy golf, curling, pasta making to name a few. - Company dodgeball team, tennis club, book club. - Office dogs.

    Cons

    - Dogs are way too cute and they or may not affect my productivity.

    Pros

    Amazing culture, excellent people and exceptional opportunities. I recently took part in their recruitment process as a candidate and can say that I have never been made to feel so welcome prior to getting a job. Flash Pack are professional, smart with incredible personality and empathy that you don't often get in the same mix. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for their next career move. Pip particularly was an outstanding help throughout the entire process, an absolute recruitment rockstar.

    Cons

    Struggling to write five word minimum - absolutely none
