      I have been working at Liberis full-time for 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...

      I worked at Liberis full-time for 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.

      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.

      I worked at Liberis full-time for 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...
