    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Innovative Technology and Science full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The team and culture at innoTecUK is unmatched. - You need to think proactively - the right enthusiasm will have you managing your own project(s) in no time if you're willing to put in the extra time. - Its small so communication between departments is pretty quick in comparison to the bigger companies - Pub nights with the colleagues. The highlight of everyone's week

    Cons

    - You might need a car to get down to the office that's a limitation of working in the beautiful country side. - The annoying geese on Hildersham road

    1.0
    Former Intern - Intern Engineer in Cambridge, England

    I worked at Innovative Technology and Science for less than a year

    Pros

    - practised Solidworks use but not much more

    Cons

    - not much attention was paid to interns - other staff were busy so did not mentor us - often sat at desk without any work to do - company is extremely inaccessible - management wasted the limited time we had at the company asking us to 'perfect' a report to their taste

    Innovative Technology and Science Response

    July 20, 2020HR/Operations Manager

    Thank you for your comment. We have taken on board your experience and should we receive internships in the future, we shall do so with a clear strategy to benefit both parties.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Innovative Technology and Science full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    We have new management within InnoTecUK, our Chief Operations Officer and his new team are working tirelessly to fix pre-management practices and implement best practice. Right now we are all working together to take InnoTecUK from a 'place to work' to a great company to work for. Department structure has been changed offering personal development opportunities for Engineers.

    Cons

    This is a time of transition, especially within the Engineering Department, but new department structure is having a positive affect on working practices and staff morale. The new offices has given us much more space with reception and conference areas. The rural location we can't do anything about for now, but car sharing is encouraged.

    Pros

    Projects can be diverse and very challenging

    No resource management when it comes to projects. No external training offered. You will learn bad practices as the working environment is chaotic. Management don't care that engineers are overburdened and leave the company.

    I worked at Innovative Technology and Science full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    NON! For first weeks you will be very happy, until you realise the truth.

    Cons

    InnoTecUK in a nutshell: They will promise you things with intention of never making it happen. They will tell you, there are more than 26 employees and that they are in operation since 2009 (but no one ever worked for them longer than 2 years!). They use pirate software every day and CEO is OK with that! They will tell you that they have done more than 30 projects (but not even one successful!) They take money from Innovate UK and EU with clear intention of never making it happen.
