    Pros

    -Drinks in the kitchen
    -Few nice people
    -Campus Locations
    I can't think about any other pros.

    Cons

    Stay away if you can! Do not drag yourself into this mess and do not believe any positive reviews as it is all fake. The company has no structure. They get rid of managers and make the teams to work hard with nothing in return. They are not interested in your promotion or development. Most of the teams are demotivated and you won't be welcomed properly. The salaries are very low, the benefits are poor and you will just get stuck at the same level forever with nothing in return. The company clearly has their favorites (those people who suck up to management or somehow related to them) If you are not one of the favorites, do stay away! There is no future for hard working people in this company. FYI very high turnover of staff ( at least 4-5 people per month are leaving)

    Advice to Management

    Start to recognize the talent and reward existing employees. Stop getting rid of people without replacing them.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, modern offices

    Cons

    Working hard and being dedicated to your role is not enough to get on in this company - you will only be promoted if you are considered a favourite of the management. The staff are fairly segregated, the management do not stick up for their employees. The pay is low and the management have no issues with creating conflict in their teams. Staff can be given tasks well above their level without being promoted or paid more. Too much internal politics going on. Top level management will happily throw their employees to the wolves to save themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Understand and nurture the talents and strengths of each employee instead of focusing on your favourites. Meet with staff to gain feedback and understand how they are feeling, provide suitable training and support - if not then your staff will leave and work somewhere they will actually be appreciated.

    International environment, staff events, relaxed atmosphere, good place to start your career

    Cons

    Unprofessional management who promotes only those who s*ck up, staff members of certain nationalities are prioritized over the others, low salary comparing to the rest of London-based Unis, people who already left are often not being replaced

    Advice to Management

    Focus on discovering the real talents instead of those who act like clowns around you, promote hard workers, increase pay to be at least on a same level with other educational institutions, train managers better.

    Pros

    -Very relaxed environment!
    - Some nice people ( unfortunetly they all leave very soon)
    - Many staff events, leaving drinks etc.

    Cons

    This company is Swedish, so the first thing i would like to point out that if you are not Swedish , you do not have many opportunities for progression. However, senior management really appreciates people who "suck up" to get a promotion. They do not care about dedicated and talented people who has beenwith a company for a long time. They are not afraid to loose them. Also, if they loose someone, they do not replace them. Very high turnover of staff!Very unprofessional environment! Some teams do not even have a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent and learn to appreciate employees who has dedicated many years of their lives to this place. Start paying more to non-swedish people! We also need food!
