    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Team incredibly communicative and helpful - On-boarding very organised - very little is left up to the newcomer to have to ask about. - There seems to be a lot of focus on employee satisfaction. - Bi-annual hack days, as well as 6 weekly "Wiggle" weeks where you can work on something you want, provided it's relevant to the company.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at FreeAgent full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been at FreeAgent for 2 years and have to say it's the most challenging but at the same time most enjoyable place I have worked. I feel motivated to do my best and my work requires me to create new things and solve problems, but it's an enjoyable process with lovely colleagues and a healthy work environment. Always looking to introduce great perks and fun into the office

    Cons

    Typical days involve a few more meetings than I was used to before but the up shot of this is joined up thinking through collaborative working and no good ideas get missed! So not really a con I guess

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    I've found this to be a really fun environment with a variety of social activities to take part in. You can join games nights, team charity runs, or just play pool and have a beer after work in the shared kitchen. People are friendly and inclusive and this helps new joiners settle in really quickly. There is a good work-life balance and although people work hard, there is an informal atmosphere that makes it easy to...

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons so far. The company is growing very quickly so we just need to make sure we adapt quickly and continue the great things that are in place already.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being transparent and making time to hear everyone's views.

    I have been working at FreeAgent full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with, good work environment, very friendly company, reasonable autonomy. Everyone has great enthusiasm for their work.

    Cons

    Lofty goals and planning of too much work per quarter is often demoralising, not as flexible as they make out – it really depends on department whether you can work flexibly, not enough time for personal development

  7. "A great place to work"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland
      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at FreeAgent for more than 6 years

      Pros

      A team that's not only highly skilled and intelligent but very friendly. There's nobody at FreeAgent I wouldn't be happy to have a coffee with. Free lunch every Friday, whatever kind of tea you want, and plenty of biscuits - that's if the boss hasn't eaten them!

      Cons

      The only disadvantage is the commute but that's my fault for living in Cumbria!

      Advice to Management

      Stop scoffing all the biscuits!

      I have been working at FreeAgent full-time

      Pros

      Good culture, healthy environment, company focused on quality with lovely people. Amazing offices in Edinburgh. No micromanagement.

      Cons

      I had to leave the company for personal reasons (non-related to this company), a tough decision cause I loved to work there.

      Advice to Management

      The company is growing very fast, my advice to the management is keep this magic environment, avoid corporative models as much as you can.

      Everyone really friendly, including the executive team. Great understanding of work life balance and willing to be flexible for the benefit of the employee. Just a fun place to work.

      The next place I worked was rubbish in comparison.
