      Can't fault it so far

      Pros

      The culture is great, the office environment is very friendly, felt wanted and welcomed from the day I started. Coworkers very helpful, challenging but rewarding, lots of benefits, good pay. Great free coffee, along with a breakfast bar and muffins, even a games console in the "chill" room!! Very nice team leaders with big plans for every employee they want you to achieve your absolute best. Lots of progression opportunity through level 1-3. Regular staff parties/events too which are very fun with free alcohol and food!!

      Cons

      Training hasn't been great, a little all over the place and found myself stuck multiple times needing to ask for assistance. They leave you to do your own thing quite early on so if you have no experience you might feel a bit out of place, but this is ok because the team leaders are always caring and helpful about how you feel and want to push you to be your best

      Pros

      From my experience, there are no positives

      Cons

      Applied for a position with the company and after a couple of weeks I had a call from the recruitment team about organising a formal interview. I never heard back from the recruitment team despite me chasing them for an update multiple times. Very poor candidate experience.

      Great company, great teams, terrible organisation, average at best pay

      Pros

      The guys are truly fantastic, the office atmosphere is lovely, all the people are pleasant, even management from what I've found. Flexible working and loads of options to help help mental health etc through lockdown. A genuinely caring company.

      Cons

      Pay is probably the worst in the industry. New business Sales paid salaries of 42k when existing business noway near that and work just as hard. Tech teams paid even worse for the hours they put in. No practical training whatsoever and a serious brain drain for the products as soon people either redundant or quit. Acquisitions so quick no-one knows the product before they buy another. Causing major issues internally. False promises for development seem the ethos of Ideagen. 0 development aside from teaching yourself. It seems the Ideagen way.
