    Pros

    Great people, Geeks is a company which take care of its employees and value a good working culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes, processes can be a little bit stiffs but it wasn't a major problem to me. Microsoft Windows exclusively.

    Pros

    Learning and development, cross-domain experience, complex projects, modern technologies and tools, lean and unbureaucratic.

    Cons

    If you are not self-motivated this will not be the best place for you. You're expected to be proactive and get things done.

    I have been working at Geeks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Outstanding co-workers. Flexible working hours. Varied tasks and self-development prospects. Extraordinary benefits & facilities such as office games, massage chairs, free food, drinks, snacks, and fruits. No routine over-time. Enjoyable work. Lots of training. Out of work socialising events (often paid-for by the company). Parties in different occasions. Sports and charity clubs with lots of campaigns to raise money or participate in good things. Clever and thoughtful colleagues that go out of their way to help you.

    Cons

    28 days of annual leave. Could be more (to be fair, one day is added to it each year, but it could still be more)

    Advice to Management

    Introduce a policy to increase the annual leave allowance

    I have been working at Geeks full-time

    Pros

    * Very nice and smart people
    * Great social life & work environment. Free breakfast/lunch/snacks, plenty of out-of-work socialising and events, annual holiday.
    * True focus on employee welfare
    * Friendly & respectful office environment
    * Amazing training programme. Great place to work at, especially for the trainees. Brilliant opportunity to launch into a software career. Small and growing company, so the opportunities are great if you are proactive.
    * Professional certifications paid by the company
    * You matter. If you want to make a change, you are largely able to try and do so.

    Cons

    The consultancy nature of the business means that we often have to work on projects that are not very inspiring

    Advice to Management

    The office environment makes this company. Try not to lose sight of that.
