    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, excellent flexible working practices, great IT support, global opportunities, meritocracy

    Cons

    meritocracy skewed in favour of men, especially those that are highly competitive, collaborative working is not supported by process, company direction and plans shared with those 'in the club' but not widely if you don't attend the key meetings. Values and actions do not always align (e.g. value staff but L&D / Talent team axed).

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great business to work for, with the ability to progress and grow within the company, their strong appreciation for work-life balance and offering flexible working arrangements. The 'family feel' of the office always makes it a welcoming environment to work in.

    Cons

    Traffic around the business park can get quite busy in the evenings.

    I have been working at Harvey Nash Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Birmingham office is one of the most successful in the Group and has a reputation for maturity and flexibility. Leadership care and want you to do well - plenty of opportunity for progression and great commission structure. They care about wellbeing - home working is an option, plenty of flexibility, free weekly yoga, nutrition and mindfulness seminars etc. Sparkly new office looks like a Shoreditch coffee shop!

    Cons

    Out on a business park, not in the town centre - but you save money and can enjoy a lovely lunchtime walk around the lake.

    Pros

    - Autonomy and Flexibility to allow you to set how you wan't to work to be successful - Fantastic new office with the office culture to match

    Traffic around the area but that's hardly their fault and they're more than happy to offer flexibility
