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

    Pros

    New and exciting technologies to learn. Training program is excellently written and taught perfectly by the expert staff. Within days of starting, you are made to feel like family and are looked after throughout and after training. Opportunities to consult with some huge companies in a variety of locations.

    Cons

    The training is unpaid, however with a guarantee of starting to get paid after 12 weeks AND a fully furnished apartment proved for you at no charge, close to the office, it is well worth the wait!

    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.

    Great atmosphere, good training, friendly management and good benefits. Focused on maintaining staff morale and excellence. Social activities encouraged and arranged by the company.

    I have been working at Netbuilder

    Pros

    I'ts a really fun place to work and i've learnt almost as much as I did at Uni in just a couple of Weeks.

    Cons

    Training is unpaid and there's sometimes a bit of uncertainty about where you will be placed or what you will train in, but you're told what to expect before you join so its not that big of a deal.

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

    Pros

    The training program has been created to enhance skills that you may not have thought were relevant, and there are huge potential opportunities if you are a hard working individual. The training staff are committed to enable your personal development whether that be technical or personal skills, and are very supportive with the training. Every Friday afternoon you get to drink and socialize in the office, you can play pool whenever you like and there is a brilliant atmosphere in the office. It's almost a shame to be deployed!

    Cons

    I'm yet to find any, but c'mon this is an excellent place to work. I guess the only downside would be the unpaid training but the skills developed and knowledge you acquire throughout this more than make up for that. Plus accommodation is provided for this period so you only have to worry about living costs.

    Trained in relevant technologies Trainers are fun and engaging Meet a vast array of people and make good connections Pool table in the office

    Cons

    None really. The training is unpaid but they make you very aware of this before you begin so it's just part of the job. There are no hidden downsides which is something which worried me to begin with

    I have been working at Netbuilder full-time

    Pros

    The courses are far more engaging than most of my lectures at university, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the trainers are genuinely friendly and helpful. The role is a fantastic start for graduates, the training is in relevant technologies currently on demand, and you get to experience several technologies and work on different projects.

    Cons

    Unpaid training, plan a budget for 12 weeks, and you should be fine. Training can be quite intensive at times, you get to cover a lot of content really fast.
