    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to develop your interpersonal skills (lots of social events including a pool tournament). The academy is a big confidence boost to all personality types. Accommodation (with all bills) is provided by the company.

    Cons

    Money is an issue while training so make sure you have some savings. Salary is the same amount regardless of which location you are placed at, this can be a problem if you end up living somewhere where living costs are high.

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

    Pros

    Had a fantastic feeling of comradery within the Delivery Centre, great communication and very strong leadership on-site. Solid processes and very clear plan of delivery from the project managers, with integrated support from testing and all developers - a real team spirit. Used to have lots of social events and Friday Meeting with Head of Delivery was always enjoyable.

    Cons

    Only had one customer. Lost that customer. We all lost our jobs. Either bad insight by senior management or poor sales but company crumbled beneath their feet.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic and friendly work environment where all colleagues are actively encouraged to participate in social events both in and out of work hours. Work is a constant challenge and new technologies are taught in a realistic and accessible way. All senior Staff are delightful to work under and help both with day-to-day problems and to keep the work environment comfortable and relaxed.

    Cons

    Large workloads with short deadlines can appear quite quickly due to the fluidity of the training process. These are a challenge and require efficient teamwork to deliver to deadlines. 12 weeks unpaid training is manageable but preparation and budgeting is important.

    Pros

    The Academy: Amazing facilities (Office, Accommodation & Location) Great Social Events Good Course Structure Excellent standard and delivery of content Training staff are extremely helpful Friendly and professional atmosphere Both Challenging and Rewarding Industry level training for junior developers in various technologies Industry level recognized certifications/qualifications paid for by the company

    Cons

    Must be geographically flexible Putting in extra work is beneficial in the long run Not a lot of choice in which technologies you are trained in, it varies depending on what the business needs so be prepared for training in what ever the business needs. Training can sometimes feel rushed

    Pros

    Brilliant training course provided which fully encompasses a focused set of skills which are essential for making a good start. Generally very quick for being placed with a client and lots of assistance in terms of interview preparation. Enjoyable staff who are welcoming and friendly and don't think of themselves as higher up. Plenty of opportunity to expand your skills. Lovely office location with easy access to lots of social meeting points. Regular social events with other colleagues and staff.

    Cons

    The only downside is sometimes the course pace is too quick although putting the extra effort in to understand and learn will go a long way. It's not easy but it is definitely worth it.

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

    Pros

    The workforce are young, ambitious and keen to learn; the management team promote a positive and inclusive working environment with regular drinks and social events. The younger members of the company have some very gifted minds to look up to and work alongside, helping with their development and giving them confidence to improve their skills. As our Academy Consultants are permanent company employees, we take great pride and care in ensuring each experience is as positive and rewarding as the next. Around a fifth of our Consultants have been taken on permanently by customers and many more are enjoying moving up through the ranks on market-leading development and implementation projects with global, blue chip firms. A fantastic place to start your career.

    Cons

    Only downside is that the Worthing Academy Training site is a 15-min walk from the nearest station, and the building is a little tired
