More Pros and Cons
  1. "Good people you want to spend time with"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Good People You Want to Spend Time With in London, England

      I worked at Geeks full-time

      Pros

      The projects I handled were vital and this exposure of handling crucial projects actually helped me to enhance my abilities as a professional. The management motivated me by offering recognitions from time to time. They also provide space so that I can think something unique and also deliver innovative solutions. Overall, nice work culture.

      Cons

      Most projects are web or mobile. No embedded device programming or other paradigms.

      Advice to Management

      Introduce more programming languages

    • "Best Place for Fresher"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at Geeks full-time

        Pros

        Learn new technologies and know more about software design trends from seniors, developers and BAs who also share knowledge with me from time to time. I would like to recommend it to others

        Cons

        Nothing specific to mention.

        Advice to Management

        Keep up the good work and don’t take some negative reviews here seriously. They haven’t seen the world.

      • "Good enough to work in this company"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at Geeks full-time

          Pros

          They give scope to learn new things and enhance my practical knowledge. The work environment is very satisfactory. Their tools and methods are way more efficient than other companies. Coworkers are angels.

          Cons

          So many internal tools can make you lazy. It can make it painful to do things manually when you move to other companies.

          Advice to Management

          Diversify salad bar. Increase holidays. Communicate more with the staff.

          StarStarStarStarStar
            Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

            I have been working at Geeks full-time

            Pros

            The management motivates me to handle vital projects and improve my professional skills. Projects are exciting and fast paced. Amazing people, the best I’ve ever seen.

            Cons

            Salaries are not the highest in the industry

            Advice to Management

            You seem to be doing great

            Pros

            The average person at Geeks is lovely and friendly. Free drinks and salad bar at lunch. Games room.

            Cons

            Do not sign the training contract. 4 year training contract where you incur 25k in the first year and if you leave within the 4 years they will make you pay the 25k back depending on how long you are through the next 3 years. If you are miserable at Geeks and you want to leave they will make you pay the training cost which no one can afford to pay so you are forced to stay. For the 25k, you receive on the job training...

            Advice to Management

            Reduce or remove the training contract duration, train your employees to do a great job for you and give them incentives to stay. New office required. HR department is essential.

            Cons

            Unjustified "training" contracts when you receive no relevant training. Heavily underpaid. Dated in-house technologies. Will only teach you how to use these in house technologies and no relevant development skills to help you grow as a developer. Architecture of code is absolutely awful and you do not learn how to create an actual application, will use a code generator to make 90% of the code for you and if...

            Advice to Management

            Start treating your employers like humans and pay a correct wage, stop the director having such a big involvement in development and be open to use actual technologies outside of what trash "M#" can generate.
