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

    Pros

    Very supportive, positive & enjoyable environment to work in. Strong family feel and everyone is happy to lend a hand when needed. The team are friendly, fun and very approachable. OryxAlign is keen to recognise and reward their employees and proactively support their continued growth and development in line with the continued company growth.

    Cons

    The company is growing at a fast pace, roles are always evolving and adapting and at times communication could be better. However, they are working hard to continue to define all processes, procedures and expectations as we grow and in turn, this will improve lines of communication. Onwards and upwards.

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the Manchester office is second to none. Everyone can have a laugh and a joke with each other, when we need help from a colleague they are there straight away to help you. The management team in Manchester are caring, helpful and knowledgeable. They want to help if you have any issues, I had an issue and could easily talk to the guys and the matter was sorted quickly. This doesn't stop at local level, you can send a message to the CEO and he will reply. We all work closely as a team and have some fantastic talent in the organisation. Having worked in other organisations there is nothing quite like the superb culture Oryx have created. If we raise any points these are taken on board and acted upon. Beer fridge every friday and we get fed and watered every company meeting.

    Cons

    Nothing to note that would be a con to me, but if I have to put something. Not enough Pizza :D

    Pros

    Some fantastic Pro's - - We've got a fantastic engineering team, and banter is a-plenty. - Teamwork between colleagues - this is an absolute pro, the majority of the people in the office go above and beyond. - Everyday is as interesting as the last due to the vast array of industries our clients are involved in. - Close client relationships, and often out of this clients are often offering some amazing experiences.

    Cons

    Unfortunately we've also some negatives - - There's sadly not going to be many members of staff remaining in Manchester if morale isn't improved. Upper management are aware and we've seen no effort to improve this, hence disapproval of the CEO. - Due to the above, it's a highly stressed environment whilst they're currently hiring for the SD, simply due to the workload. Numerous staff often off-sick with stress. - Recent hires have reduced the quality of the work performed/produced - believed to be due to desperation. - Current Employees are "encouraged" to leave positive reviews.

    Pros

    Very much a can-do company. The cliche of work hard, play hard does actually apply here, it isn't just a saying and if you put the effort in, you reap the rewards.

    Cons

    Can be busy and there are some growing pains as with all companies that go through rapid growth, but, it IS making changes where needed. My only gripe maybe that it's taking a little longer than it should to make the changes, but they ARE coming.

    Pros

    Everyone feels like a friendly family after a short amount of time. Little to no judgement felt , no such thing as a silly question and everyone is always willing to help (even the question is not in their job spec) Comfortable and supportive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Work load can be badly distributed

    I worked at OryxAlign full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Wide range of experience to be had, always something to learn - Busy, never a dull moment - Fast paced, rapidly growing - Serious about technology, they really know their stuff - Great company culture, very social and outgoing. Company is full of expats, so the office definitely becomes a home away from home. - Well-structured, especially for a small company. Board holds managers accountable, and great strategic experience which you wouldn't find at most other similarly-sized companies - Great customers and partners - Teamwork - the majority of the people in the office are always happy to help and go above and beyond. It's a small company, so things can get hectic occasionally, but few people stick to their designated "role" and everyone just mucks in when needed. The company is great at rewarding the hard work as well.

    Cons

    - Sometimes too busy. Oryx is definitely fast-paced, which means people can feel stressed and sometimes mistakes can happen. Fortunately, the company is good at rectifying those mistakes, and people feel comfortable owning up to them and putting measures in place to prevent them from happening again. - Set in their ways. Things occasionally are done because "that's always been the way", when in reality, the company has grown and matured past that and there are probably some processes and responsibilities that should be reviewed.

    OryxAlign Response

    July 26, 2018Marketing Manager

    Hi there Sorry to hear that you have experienced some disappointment during your time at OryxAlign. Staff happiness is hugely important to us here and whilst we do all that we can to ensure staff are as comfortable and motivated as possible, there are occasions where tight timescales and high pressures mean that we all have to work a little harder. We feel that our open and friendly culture creates an environment whereby staff feel able to discuss any challenges they are experiencing and I am sorry that this was not your experience. Please know that we do take your feedback very seriously and will certainly discuss this internally but I would like to offer you the opportunity to discuss this further and will happily arrange a meeting for you with our CEO, Carl Henriksen should you wish to resolve your disgruntlement. I wish you all the best for the future. Please do get in touch if you wish to discuss this further. Kate Kate@OryxAlign.com
