    I have been working at Liberis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Genuinely positive work atmosphere, surrounded by driven and hardworking people which is a bonus.
    - Really enjoy the scope and quality of my work
    - Proactive work atmosphere, you feel able to try something new and even if you end up making mistakes.
    - A company that clearly does it's best to be as ethical as possible (especially important in the lending space)
    - Lots of benefits and perks - stuff like the free breakfasts, snacks, fruit, coffee etc. all make a difference in the long run.
    - Feels very much like a company run by its employees as opposed to somewhere where I'm simply working *for* the CEO
    - Really strong growth track makes it particularly exciting.

    Cons

    - I'm still only a months in but haven't really found any particular cons really, aside from a long commute!

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what your doing, keep the small things going and keep enabling your employees a decent level of ownership over their work - as you do.

    Pros

    Many pros include, but not limited to, an extremely happy working environment with a great work ethos and values. It is plain to see the team are very happy in their roles which reflects on the company's continuous success in it's field. Regular social activities, a healthy breakfast bar and daily refreshments also provided. Very understanding, accommodating and helpful when I experienced a recent injury. The company's knowledge of general wellbeing in the workplace is also outstanding and beneficial to the team. I feel extremely lucky to have found this role and company to work for and would highly recommend.

    Cons

    Genuinely cannot answer this question!

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

    Pros

    I have worked at some great companies in the past but Liberis is certainly the most enjoyable.

    Liberis is a family who genuinely cares about its staff, everyone is given so much encouragement to develop and because it is a fast-growing company, opportunities are plentiful.

    Liberis offers an excellent product and was the UK’s first provider of it, a Business Cash Advance. This is a finance product that helps so many SMEs achieve their goals. This has an amazing effect on the morale of the company, to know we are constantly helping our customers with their dreams.

    Cons

    No negatives to add for this company.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic people to work with. Customer focused company. Very open culture. Good physical and mental wellbeing benefits. Good structure for personal development. The more you put in the more you get out. Great investment in training up employees.

    Cons

    Can be a little inconsistent depending on which manager you have. Communication in general (between departments) could be improved. In terms of progression, it is tricky to be promoted without the person above you either leaving the company or being promoted themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees and customers the focus of everything you do.

    I worked at Liberis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Liberis made great pains to improve their technology and operations giving the company a "start up" feel.
    Young office. On your normal day it was a fun environment to work within.

    Cons

    1. Little effort to develop staff skills, particularly beyond this very small niche the company occupies.
    2. Witnessed some unpleasantness i.e. colleague redundancies.
    3. Historically, some of the senior managers made very poor decisions that ultimately caused point 2 above.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with the staff, even if the company is doing badly! Whether this is in staff reviews or monthly management meetings, honest feedback and appraisals of performance would have been welcome and explained certain company decisions better.

    I have been working at Liberis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Liberis really cares about its employees - they're growing rapidly but are making a lot of effort to maintain the startup mentality and energy of a tech company. Great opportunities to help shape the company.

    Cons

    They're growing rapidly which means they're restructuring quite often and leadership is sometimes not clear - better suited to people who are happy to work more independently.

    Advice to Management

    Be clearer on the organisation's structure and manager's responsibilities. Ensure that every area is represented to avoid skewing the direction in the favour of some departments/areas while neglecting others. Senior management should make more of an effort to get familiar with the employees under them to make sure they get the most out of them. The company is still small enough to foster good relationships between those at the bottom and at the top - this is a big appeal of Liberis.
