    The worst place to work

    Pros

    Nice enough office, some employees will support you

    Cons

    Absent management team, and the MD is a candidate for the worst person and worst boss you'll meet. You've never seen a company with a more unhappy, distrusting, workforce - all of them jumping at shadows. Nobody talks to each other unless it's in a private meeting.

    Pros

    Nice Office, breakfast, little perks like chocolate

    Cons

    Cons are literally everything else - and it starts and ends with the MD. I was using three rec2rec’s when searching for a role when I ended up taking this one – 2 of them forewarned me of exactly what would happen if I accepted a job here but I pressed ahead anyway due to the charming interview process. I wish I would have listened The charm stops the moment you start. CCTV is monitored, the MD genuinely reads your emails and will print them out and bring them into meetings with you, there’s a real culture of distrust fostered by clandestine monitoring. In short, it’s a nightmare. Everybody is always annoyed, and you get the feeling it's a deliberate tactic

    Some really good people at the business. Management though... :/

    Pros

    Good team spirit (in one of the divisions) Degree of flexibility

    Cons

    Management (in particular the MD) are non-receptive, dictatorial, and micro-managerial. They don't like people with personality. They like drones.

    Good on paper, but so awful in practice

    Pros

    - Members of staff are really friendly and genuinely seem to care about you once you make friends with them - Free breakfast in the morning and soft drinks from the fridge whenever you want - Flexible working hours are a big plus and working here will definitely look good on the CV - Great Old Street location (they are due to move to Alie Street in Aldgate in January however)

    Cons

    - A highly political and toxic environment to work in. You don’t know where you stand with the company - unless you’re making it money and are seen, but not heard. - Cliques are sadly in abundance in the office which is not the fault of employees – but of management and its practices. Gossiping and Chinese whispers were aplenty during my tenure with the company. - The MD (who legit looks like Ness from Super Smash Bros) and his closest advisers - namely HR - are all nice and smiles to your face. But they are always making judgments and talking behind your back – which I found out the hard way in the end. - CCTV cameras in the office – which I’m told on good authority the MD constantly reviews to potentially “weaponise” against employees. Small whispers abound he actually reads the emails of employees as well. - No compassion when it comes to a work/life balance – especially if it relates to an unforeseen emergency circumstance. Pray to God you don’t have one while working here.

    Pros

    Free breakfast, decent location,

    Cons

    Wolf in sheeps clothing MD. All smiles but a real conniving, Machiavellian, duplicitous nasty piece of work. Obsessed with monitoring – reviews CCTV footage, reads all staff emails, uses any personal information as a weapon. Would have been handy to have known that he was up in front of a select committee

    Pros

    Speak to lots of different people so good for developing communication and people skills.

    Cons

    As another has said, inappropriate behaviour and language used by senior management. Very toxic office environment with gossip, bullying and cliques throughout. MD is a dictator, his way or the highway and does not care about others opinions, workloads or work/life balance. Rules for one will most likely not be the same rule for someone else. Some people are allowed to be on personal WhatsApp or Facebook all day and others are penalised for looking at their phone at all. How well you are treated here is dependant on whether the MD likes you or not. Someone is sacked on a monthly basis so lacks job security.
