    I have been working at Scott Logic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get to work with top notch developers, testers, UX designers and delivery managers. Working for a consultancy means that the work is varied and you get to change projects on a semi-regular basis which keeps things interesting. Good work is recognised and rewarded.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility in working hours.

    "Smart People, Friendly Atmosphere, Boring, Poor Benefits"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Software Developer 

    I worked at Scott Logic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart people who care about good software development practices Friendly atmosphere and low pressure

    Cons

    Boring consulting work for mostly financial systems If there is no current client work you get "benched" and have to work on dull internal legacy systems with little impact Pay isn't actually that great for a firm that does financial consulting software for big clients. And they cut a bunch of the benefits to compensate for a slightly improved pension.

    I worked at Scott Logic full-time

    Pros

    Friendly office with nice people

    Cons

    Lack of clients resulted in lots of poorly managed internal projects which were a waste of time. Employees leaving the office regularly cause their sick of these projects / waiting around for client work.

    Thank you for your review, we take pride in employing talented people and I'm pleased you found this to be a positive experience. We aim to create a friendly environment to support our people and I'm glad you found this to be the case in Edinburgh. While consultancy offers a great deal of variety and opportunity, there are times between projects when self-directed learning in a tech you aspire to learn or a project of interest to the you or the company are undertaken. We appreciate this isn’t for everyone and have taken on-board your feedback about your experiences of this time as a part of our continual improvement. -Stuart G. Head of Consultancy, Edinburgh
