      Great Culture, No Progression

      May 25, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in London, England, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very accepting, diverse and liberal culture Reasonable pay Teams are empowered and autonomous Generally very good people that work here - passionate and intelligent Management understand the long-term costs of technical debt, and provide us generous sprint capacity to tackle it No culture of overtime Non-hierarchical organizational structure - generally a positive and generative culture whereby lines of communication aren't mandated by your position Great location (for pre-pandemic times!) Generous home-working perks Asides from our legacy monoliths, we've adopted a modern tech stack that's in-line with industry standards Interesting work (occasionally!) Trusted to work autonomously; teams are generally self-organizing. Management aren't overly-prescriptive on organization and working dynamics. Ambitious company - I think Gamesys will continue to be a commercial success.

      Cons

      Possibly like most places, but there's a ceiling you hit where it becomes extremely difficult to ascend, and it becomes clear you need to change job to further your ambitions. The company is reluctant to rid themselves of inadequate hires, and will persevere, even when improvement is evidently not forthcoming - this is soul-sapping, frustrating and completely destroys the morale of long-term employees who continue to impress but are not afforded the opportunity to climb the career ladder. Occasional micro-management. Pseudo-agile practices. Politically-charged environment at times, whereby personal objectives (and their associated optics) become the primary concern, rather than the company's strategic goals/ambitions.

      Pros

      Good competitive salary You get free drinks in the office They allow you to work from home Regular incentives and rewards Generous pension and company share scheme Very supportive management Great bonuses if you put the work in Lots of great people who will help you

      Cons

      Some people in the office live for politics and will look to get you in trouble. You have to keep work and outside work separate and keep it strictly professional or you can get caught up in issues. Others may get promotions before you based on how much their manager likes them. I’ve seen some people who were among the weakest in the team get promoted and it does feel like people get special treatment and different people are held to different standards which is annoying when you work hard and get rewarded less for doing more. Facilities staff can be overly dramatic and send emails about you for the most insignificant things.
