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

    Pros

    Amazing training and a real huger to learn from experiences - both positive and negative. Continually looking to improve and make their employee experience better Exciting growth trajectory, proving the worth of the model and the industry

    Cons

    In the spirit of balance, it's not for everyone - there's a big moral contract to working with Kubrick and a real sense of commitment and maturity needed. But, if you want to work in great sectors and receive some valuable training, look no further.

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kubrick's model is great, been a lot more resilient and clear than most companies through Covid. Training is excellent, career prospects are excellent. People team support is strong throughout and should be commended, from communications to the Head.

    Cons

    Company growing will always have issues, but they're quite introspective as problems arise. Should hire more into HQ to support them.

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

    Pros

    - Excellent Training - Teaching Staff are very talented and geninely lovely people - Good camaraderie with fellow contractors (you're going through hell together)

    Cons

    - HQ have no care for your satisfaction, only how much money they can make of you - HQ have (first-hand source) threatened employees into signing new contracts after changes in material circumstances - Realistically most skills you'll learn on client site, it makes much more sense to get a job as an employee somewhere where you're valued and learn the skills there - Underpaid for the job you perform - Contract stipulates that everything they tell you (all those stories about where you'l go and what you'll do) about the job in the interview stage is null and void after signing contract. - After this contract says you have to do whatever job they tell you, for 2 years - Multiple contractors (first-hand source) have had their mental health seriously negatively affected by working here, avoid.

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can be a good opportunity.

    Cons

    The added stress of not being able to quit your job is hard to overstate. The feeling of being trapped when things are going badly is really pretty horrible. I'd like to consider myself a pretty resilient individual but it can start to really exhaust you. When you get stuck in a stressful project it feels like there's no option but to just keep working longer hours until you make it out the other side.

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time

    Pros

    You learn a lot of technical knowledge. Whether you get to apply it on client site is a roulette

    Cons

    Do not have freedom to forge your own career. This is a huge problem

    I have been working at Kubrick Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You start in a larger cohort (around 20) so it is a very positive learning environment as they usually on-board people with similar levels of technical skills (I started with no coding experience), and the pace of the training was a good fit for me. Lots of communication from trainers and HQ. Regular socials and networking events to meet people within the company and in parallel cohorts. Everyone is very friendly including both of the managing partners who are very down to earth as people.

    Cons

    Some cohorts may end up in one of the other training locations as there are currently only 2 training rooms in HQ. The locations aren't to far away from HQ (one of them is next door, the other about a 2-3 minute walk away). Not much say on where you are placed but you should end up in the best fit for you job-wise (and if you really aren't happy after 6 months on client site you can request a transfer)

    Pros

    Kubrick Group provides one of the best post-university opportunities out there. Having industry-leading training and experts assisting you in your learning is unparalleled. The level of communication especially during this turbulent time (written during COVID-19) is high and it is clear that, whilst like in all businesses the company understands your monetary worth to the business, a huge amount of time and effort (namely from an entire team in HQ) is put in to ensure your wellbeing. Kubrick's business model is clear and the compensation is excellent, even when training. Much like in all consultancies the placements after are not all going to be perfect, but if you are not prepared for this you should not be applying. Overall the placements are of a high calibre, the training is excellent, the core HQ teams pure function is to make your life during your time at Kubrick easier and I am extremely happy that I have been given the opportunity to join an industry trailblazer and propel my career as much as I have.

    Cons

    There are no major cons around Kubrick, just similar problems that most business experience and they are dealt with promptly and fairly.

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

    Pros

    - decent pay potential, but underpaid compared to competitors

    Cons

    - a lot. However, my main point here is take all the good reviews with a pinch of salt. The HQ read glassdoor, and have been known to add good reviews themselves (all reviews are anonymous so glassdoor won't know). - an example is the positive review about stability transparency, especially in COVID-19 times. This review screams of HQ. There was no transparency, with 2cohorts entirely fired, some individuals from another fired, with more threatened. I get times are rough but Kubrick were appalling in the way they treated individuals and are lying on this site.
