    Not a con per se, but the team are international so I've not managed to meet everyone *yet*. Covid19 has made that tricky too!

    I have been working at Focal Point Positioning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The line managers are excellent. They push you towards new challenges and towards learning new skills. There is flexible working both in terms of office time (flexible hours, working from home etc.). A good atmosphere has been cultivated in both the Bristol and Cambridge offices.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between the two offices.

    I have been working at Focal Point Positioning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A friendly environment, where knowledge sharing is highly encouraged, creating the ideal conditions for personal growth and development. In addition to the competitive salary, many other benefits are provided, such as 25 days of annual leave, free company lunches, and flexible working hours.

    Cons

    As with every growing organisation in its early stages, there is currently a low number of employees. However, the company is now hiring, so this is going to change in the near future.
