    I have been working at Huddle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone here is really friendly and passionate about their work. The company has innovation time to allow developers to pick their projects to do and take responsibility for it. The company to open to new technologies and you to get work with some of the best architects in the industry including the Ian Cooper who is one of the best speakers in testing and microservices.

    Cons

    Honestly not much, the company has some legacy code which needs remodelling but there has been a big drive in the last two years to fix and deprecate it. Employees get share options but not much now

    Advice to Management

    You've got great people working here and it's really good you listen to them and provide opportunities where you can. Keep being open to change and don't be afraid to drop 'process' for efficiency

    Focus on developing your teams more, not just the revenue numbers

    I worked at Huddle full-time

    Pros

    Huddle has great company culture, the work/life balance is really good, with somewhat flexible hours. It's greatest assets is it's employees, everyone is really friendly and in the almost 3 years i worked there i enjoyed coming into the office every single day!

    Cons

    Process is very hindering and management can be slow to respond to employee requests. Career progression is also quite hard as there is a lacking system where employees can see what is required of them at the next level and strive towards improving themselves to get there.

    I worked at Huddle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team of people who are really hardworking and want to see things improve.

    Cons

    Staff leaving in their droves and communication is poor. There is no faith in management and the more recent addition of a London based CEO has done nothing to improve things - he is still largely absent from what I have been told. Benefits are being cut and so for the lower paid members of staff this has had a massive impact.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff and look after them. There are a lot of faithful and hopeful people willing to drive change and make a difference. You are driving some of the best talent away.

    I have been working at Huddle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work with friendly colleagues, free food twice a week and beer oclock fridays.

    Cons

    Upper management have been poor at communication and making last minute announcements which have in turn affected some of the employees.
    Sometimes processes are slow, like using newer technology.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees sooner about changes and be more transparent/honest.

    Pros

    Good working environment; people are genuine and easy to work with. Standard benefits package with good health and dental cover. Free breakfast and lunch on certain days among other perks.

    Cons

    The BI/Data department needs attention and investment is there is to exist. Hours are 9-6 which can make the day feel long but there is flexibility.

    I worked at Huddle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huddle is a great place to work! It was my first job out of university and spent over 5 years there in the end!
    You can learn so much from the people around you and honestly the people are one of THE best things about this company. Everyone is extremely intelligent and capable but also good fun to be around.

    Huddle have a team called "The Funderbirds" to keep the teams connected and having fun! And lunch provided once a week too! And the benefits package is amazing too just dont miss out on one of the awesome deals you can get

    Cons

    It's not a con but if you are aa person that needs stability and consistency then Huddle probably isnt the place for you. Huddle is a fast growing start up so tweaks and changes are made in processes and strategies along the way so you need to be good at dealing with change

    Advice to Management

    Address the communication globally. Each office is fantastic and communicating with other departments just not in other countries to learn best practises.

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

    Pros

    As a graduate, fresh out of university the job hunt can be overwhelming but when you land in a company like Huddle you realise just how great working life can be. I've been working at Huddle for 18 months and couldn't recommend it more. If you want to be surrounded by bright people, work under management you respect, believe in your company vision and have a lot of fun along the way then this is definitely the place to do it. At Huddle you are exposed to what it takes to make a young, dynamic company a success in a competitive market, management care about your growth and progression and praise is definitely given when deserved. You have the opportunity to manage your own business, work hard and earn well while being surrounded by great people. The culture is great with lots of social events and after work drinks and the sense of being part of a team who care about each others success is strong.

    Cons

    Lots of change, but that is to be expected in a growing company. Flip it on its head and its actually hugely beneficial to be exposed to teething problems, lessons learnt from mistakes and what it takes to execute a strategy successfully.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but maybe bring some laughs back to Stand - Up every once in a while!
