    Pros

    Excellent quality of training for an appropriate length of time before being put onto challenging client projects. Training then continues while on the project, with responsibility increasing slowly over time.

    Cons

    Have not yet been able to move to Brighton

    Great opportunity for graduates to get their foot in the door

    Feb 22, 2021 - Graduate Software Engineer in Brighton, England, England
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - High-quality training paid for in full - Quick start with very little time between getting the job and actually starting, it was also a very quick interview process which was a nice change - Given opportunities early on to interact with a range of clients/given tips on how to communicate effectively - Given real responsibilities in projects rather than busywork

    Cons

    The main downsides are covid related such as reduced pay while working from home, this was clearly stated in the job offer and interviews so you know what you are getting into. The learning curve can be steep but good training and help from coworkers alleviates the majority of this.

    NETbuilder, a company of broken promises

    Oct 17, 2019 - Software Developer in Brighton, England, England

    Pros

    You get the cheapest perkbox package and a fair number of holidays. The people in the delivery centre are very friendly, often going to the pub for lunch on a Friday.

    Cons

    I was hired and had to assemble my workstation on my first day. I was then told to research a technology on my own for the next few weeks. I was given no formal training and was put on to a client facing role straight away. The company is archaic when it comes to employee benefits. No flexi time, no work from home policy, the cheapest band of Perkbox rewards and no bonuses. For a company that moved to trendy Brighton, it is very behind the times in this area. The company has absolutely no career development. No training is offered and no matter how hard you work, your hard work is not recognised. You are just another cog in the machine and you will feel like it. You will be underpaid for your role. You will not be paid overtime, no matter how necessary your work was. You will be given personal objectives tied to pay rises and promotions, you are expected to these in your own time as "you must be billing". I was always at 100% utilisation and never given anytime to work on my objectives during office hours. The sales department is an absolute farce with a complete inability to find new work. We were promised work holidays to France and Spain, both of which never happened. We were heavily pressured to pass an exam that required a minimum of 2 years’ experience. Of course, we were given no time at work to prepare for this exam. There is a massive disconnect between senior management and the work force. You can get glowing feedback from a partner or client and no positive feedback from the company at all. There is no sick pay unless you are off for more than 3 days at once, even then it’s statutory, if someone gets ill, they feel obligated to come into work, spreading the illness round the office like wildfire. This company expects everything and gives nothing in return.
