    I worked at Garrison Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of company events to keep employees socially engaged, without pressure to participate. The company culture is fairly lax and people get along well with each other between all teams.

    Cons

    Until recently, management and feedback lacked structure - managers have only recently been given/instructed through management courses. Job titles are mostly variations on Software Engineer, with few opportunities to work on developing your personal brand as a professional.

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

    Pros

    +The current size allows you to get a holistic view of what the company is doing; you're not just constrained your own area +Good culture and values, proactively trying to be a better company in more areas than just growth / the bottom line. This has been apparent in the efforts to continue this culture through the "virtual covid working age" +Flat structure means you don't get the political manoeuvring you can get at larger companies +Genuinely a good product which employees believe in. This can only bode well for the company's future success

    Cons

    -Due to it's size and age it is less structured than large companies so it will be what you make of it. This also means career growth will likely be tied to company growth, although it is currently growing year on year so should be less of a worry

    Pros

    Working within a great team doing work that matters. The company also provides great onboarding for new starters and regular check ups with managers. I've not been treated so well when joining a new company before.

    Cons

    No complaints at the minute!

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

    Pros

    + Friendly work atmosphere + Interesting technical challenges + Good training budget + Company puts in a lot of effort to make sure everyone has a fun time

    Cons

    - Flat structure so little opportunity to progress within the company. You can grow without your team but unlikely to grow out of your team. - You can ask for specific flexible working arrangements, but the general rule for everyone isn't very flexible. There's a core hours approach but it doesn't roll over day by day, so the most you can do to tailor your hours is shift your start and end time for a given day. - It's a one product company, so if you're looking for a place to get really involved in designing a new product, this isn't the place. But if that doesn't matter, it's great.

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

    Pros

    - Great place for graduates (like myself) to start their careers - Full-stack development so you get to learn and grow in many areas of software engineering - Great people to work with and lots of socials - Regular performance and pay reviews with your line manager - Newly renovated office is a great space to work in

    Cons

    Only con is that the job role structure can be a bit flat, ie. someone working there for 6 months and someone for 4 years could still both have the title 'Software Engineer' .

    I have been working at Garrison Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + Unique product: what Garrison does is something seen nowhere else as Garrison is trying to revolutionise a key industry with a completely new and unique approach. + Work Culture: everyone in Garrison is creative and proud in their own way and we're all part of a big family. The open management nature is fantastic and everyone is willing to help you with a smile on their face. + Values: as a start-up company, we all want to establish and maintain a culture where everyone’s voice is heard and ensure all employees feel that they have a key part to play in contributing to the success of the Garrison. Volunteering is also a big part of our day-to-day role. + Dynamic place: as the company is expanding quite rapidly, we get exposed to different areas of the business and we are all empowered as much as possible, encouraged to make our own decisions. + Socials: Garrison has several committees for sustainability, equality and diversity and the social committee is keen on providing an amazing environment for the whole Garrison team. We have regular events, like drone races, office game nights, theatre trips, summer picnics and robot wars.

    Cons

    - As the company keeps growing, you have to be ready to push yourself out of your comfort zone quite often and adapt to situations you're not familiar with. You need to believe in what Garrison does to be part of its success.

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

    Pros

    + Amazingly intelligent and friendly people - the teams at Garrison are some of the most capable people I've had the privilege of working with and yet there is never a stupid question. Everyone is always willing to help. + A great product I can really get behind - what Garrison is doing goes beyond just a product. From a marketing perspective it's incredibly exciting to be working with a company that is a real thought leader with a product that is game-changing. + A wonderful work ethic and attitude to growth and development - There's a really nice team spirit at Garrison, which helps support a healthy attitude to work. + A very supportive and trustworthy senior management team

    Cons

    - Slightly unexciting office compared to other London startups. As a company heavily invested in building a great product and bringing it to market, the priority is not on having a swanky building with pool tables and prosecco on tap. - As we grow as a company there are some teething problems related to going from a very flat structure to an inevitable degree of hierarchy and related to the development of processes that until now had been unnecessary.
