    I have been working at Scott Logic full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    * Quality of staff, it really is higher than our competitors * The staff are treated as the priority * Nice mix of work * No living out of a suitcase like other consultancies

    Cons

    * It's a consultancy, so definitely not for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    Great company with lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    Projects are hit and miss. Potential to be pigeon holed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Maybe allow developers some more input on what projects they go on to.

    I have been working at Scott Logic full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You are given responsibility, independence and ownership. You are surrounded by like minded, smart people, who are genuinely interested in technology. This results in lots of opportunities to join / create study groups, or work towards certifications. The pay is competitive and you don’t have to fight for pay increases. I have had the chance to work in a wide range of technologies. Gary (MD) and management are approachable...

    Cons

    Could have more flexible working / working from home. This has improved - although this is understandably difficult and on a client by client basis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Scott Logic is an amazing company; every software developer should aspire to work here! There is a friendly culture, supportive colleagues, an atmosphere of learning, helpful management and interesting projects. Their internal training is excellent, and everyone is encouraged to keep on learning and developing in their career. The opportunities to get involved with tech talks and the company blog are great too. In...

    Cons

    Almost none. Some people may not like remote working (we consult for clients all over the UK and overseas) or occasionally travelling to clients, but most people enjoy that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on encouraging your employees to succeed and develop in their careers.

    I have been working at Scott Logic full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some of the (usually less dev/tech people) are caring and value you as a person as as well as what you bring to the company from a skills & experience POV. Salaries are usually at market or slightly above. London office is nice but not overly inclusive if you arent in the right clique. Is super tech-heavy from an experience POV as that is still our real bread & butter, despite the presence of many other typical...

    Cons

    Many Dev-types look down their nose at you if you arent "one of them" and they most all talk a lot of TLA's / Dev / Tech-specific jargon in a way to outbid or out-experience each other. Its like a "who can pee up the wall highest" competition - which in of itself is not a consultancy skill but is the type of odd metric you are judged by. Gary (the owner) does come by but always seems to wear a "dont talk to me" look....

    Advice to Management

    This is true of many (but not all) companies I have worked with. 1) Share more about how the company is doing with your employees. We never get told about profits made, contract values, whether we are doing so well or barely scraping by. Did we get booted off a gig or did they just renew for another 12 months. If you think that kind of stuff being shared may make people leave or give individuals ammunition for a better...

    I have been working at Scott Logic full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are numerous. Listing the top few that come to mind immediately My colleagues are some of the brightest minds I've worked with! Very technically inclined, and wanting to be current with the industry/technology they prefer. Being a tool/coding language agnostic company means you can still enhance your knowledge of your favourite tool/language while learning new ones. The technical blog is very good. The whole...

    Cons

    This can swing around - so you may have to learn a new technology or tool quite quickly, and will get help. Being on client site does mean travel - but this also depends on your ability to win the client and negotiate a work pattern that suits your work-life balance. There could be more benefits/bonus based on employee/company performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - I think this company has great potential!

    Pros

    The people you get to work with every day are great. The company is full of smart, interesting individuals who you can not only enjoy working with but learn from. The culture and atmosphere is really good. The company work hard to ensure there are regular events/socials so that even those on client site get regular interaction with everyone. Everyone is here to collaborate and everyone has a voice. A lot of growing companies...

    Cons

    This is advice rather than a con: as a consultancy you are exposed to new tech and tools all the time, so you need to be someone who loves to learn and is proactive in doing so. And also someone who loves to mentor/share their knowledge with others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Maintain the focus on employees as the company continues to grow. Never lose the fantastic culture that we have here at SL.
