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

    Pros

    People - some of the smartest, most curious and easy going tech industry people work at RB Company culture - it's a very bottom-up culture, driven by people who work here Learning and training- you get a £2k budget to spend on the training you want Structure - the business has been structured to enable individual and collective autonomy Leadership team - a great mix of down to earth people who practice what they preach (most of the time) Non-political - there is very little office politics Many initiatives to get involved beyond client projects - from dodgeball to Culture Committee, to Social Value to redesigning onboarding experience for the new joiners, and more.

    Cons

    Red Badger like any other business has its limits - it's far from perfection Competing with the Goliaths of this world (Tier1 consultancies) isn't easy

  4. "Friendly, supportive environment for people looking to hone their soft skills as a consultant...and still independent!"

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

    Pros

    + Working with some of the most talented people I ever have done + Learning and Development opportunities in areas of your choice + Great social side, lots of sports, trips to shows, internal lunch and learns + Working collaboratively + Still relatively small with lots of personality and still independent + Friendly people from day one

    Cons

    - It's not a con, more that it's suited to people, who really are people people. You'll be in a team environment for everything you work on, and you'll be expected to be able to talk to clients in a clear, professional manner. - The restructure has been a challenge, but it's opened up a huge amount of opportunity - Not one for portfolio careers, you won't be thrown onto 5 projects at a time. You'll focus on one then rotate after 9- 12 months

    I have been working at Red Badger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I feel like Ive been trusted to get on with large projects and have learnt a lot along the way without a worry that I must never make a mistake. There is always someone to ask for help if I need it. The culture of the business is really positive - theres no blame culture, everything is transparent and the founders are committed to doing the right thing in terms of looking after their employees ( and others).

    Cons

    Its not very clear how my career will progress at the moment as the structure of the company is quite flat but I know this is something that is being addressed by the management team.

    I worked at Red Badger

    Pros

    - Learned loads of great technology, although the "project manager" seemed a bit disengaged which sometimes left us unsure of the best course of action - Real project was great for learning on - Awesome team - Expenses covered

    Cons

    - Aggressive management - co-ownership/company wide meetings incredibly unappealing. Like I get the idea of hold staff wide meetings where everyone gets a say in the direction of the company, But I'm not into that whole "let's pretend we all own a bit of this company and have joint responsibility" thing. Whether I'm working at expense, or being paid, I'm just that. I will do my job to the best of my ability but the direction of the company is complete out of my scope of interest with a significantly higher incentive.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Red Badger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with an extremely varied set of smart people across all disciplines (Strategy, UX, Design, Tech, PM, QA). Consistently high quality technical solutions. Interesting (but challenging) projects for large clients with high impact. A strong focus on delivery, and a low tolerance for corporate nonsense. Devoted and hard working founders who really care about culture, doing the right thing, and looking after people. A nice, friendly social environment. An office dog.

    Cons

    It's consulting. So clients can sometimes be challenging/frustrating if you're not into that.

    I worked at Red Badger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing team, amazing work driving tech forward and uncompromising on quality, speed and purpose.

    Cons

    Senior management is sporadic and disorganised. Priorities change constantly and employee feedback is non-existent if you're not in the favoured few. Beware in-group/ out-group mentality from founders.

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

    Pros

    Trying to write a list of pros for working at Red Badger is pretty tough - it's difficult to put down in words. For me personally, it's about the people, the projects, and the culture. I work day-to-day with inspirational, thought-provoking, fun people, who push the boundaries of what can be achieved. The projects we work on are ground-breaking, both in terms of the technology and the processes we use to run them. The culture is a byproduct of both of these things. Everyone is engaged and invested in the overall success of the company, something that in my experience is very rare in other similar businesses. We also like to let our hair down over a drink or 3.

    Cons

    Being part of a company that is evolving so rapidly is what makes working for Red Badger so exciting. We always have a say in what works and doesn't, and ultimately we help steer the future of Red Badger. If you don't like change, a career here is definitely not for you! Other cons: sometimes we run out of Prosecco in the beer fridge.
