    I have been working at TTP full-time

    Pros

    if you like pushing forward your ideas for technologies and products and working with really bright people, it is a great place. The minimal structure and employee ownership is empowering.

    Cons

    Not for everyone. It isn't a great place if you want a career path laid out for you. You have to carve your own wake.

    I have been working at TTP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very bright people on staff, diverse range of exciting technology projects, great technical / commercial balance in consulting roles driving entrepreneurial activity.

    Cons

    Not many. The company has perhaps become more conservative than it needs to be.

    I have been working at TTP

    Pros

    Combination of advanced technical and commercial work - still very tangible after quite a few years at TTP. Plus, there isn't much bureaucracy or politics.

    Cons

    Challenging work can lure you into working more than your family/kids would want, and whilst this may also apply for any good company, it can be an Achilles heal.

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

    Pros

    Challenging and varied work over many different industries and technologies. Opportunities for travel, but decent work life balance. Intelligent colleagues and a positive friendly culture. Flat career structure and, in my case at least, good direct boss. Very light touch management (can be a pro or a con depending on your needs). Perks include: free tennis courts, swimming, healthcare, annual bonus, share options.

    Cons

    OK pay, but if you are good enough to get in you could get more (possibly at the cost of longer hours / living in London). No provision for flexible working, overtime or flexible parenting. Career development is largely self motivated. Possible to drift for years.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    They offer reasonable career progression, in part because there is lots of interesting work. So there is lots of learning on the job, and the work is always challenging, and very varied.

    Cons

    At times it can feel a bit corporate as it has been around quite a few years now. Its size makes it not so flexible. Lots of people further up ladder have been there for yonks, so it's difficult to see where future opportunities lie.

    Pros

    Diverse markets and technologies worked in Combination of technical work, project leadership and business development Flexible career route Good salary and benefits compared to corporate peers Fast progression/responsibility for young employees if desired Good hours

    Cons

    Small, so career progress is mostly about running/selling bigger projects, rather than job title or people management Personal development is largely employees responsibility - does not suit everyone. 10 miles from cambridge, but near local station

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

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Fast-paced environment. Autonomy. Great colleagues. Dynamic athmosphere. Beautiful science park.

    Cons

    Restaurant is not great and is expensive. Public transport not subsidised, so most people drive.

    TTP Response

    I worked at TTP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place for early career stage, awful afterwards

    Cons

    Nature has taken over TTPs ‘flat’ structure and a non-spoken pecking order prevails. The culture is very manipulative, and the longer you work for them, the more you feel it, or worse you may start behaving like that, not even noticing how manipulative you may become. TTP rewards only commercial success, if your passion is truly technical TTP will chew you and spit your bones out, without a word of thank you. If on the other hand your interests are commercial, beware you are up against the least collaborative culture you may ever find. Only hero’s may apply. Diversity is taboo in TTP, a white oxbridge male workforce dominated the company and its decisions. If you fit this description you may find a place. Culture was not friendly to women, and there was no diversity in the workforce. Don’t expect reasonable working hours, or acknowledgement of overtime.

    Marketing

    Thank you for your review and sorry to hear that your experience was not all positive. It is important to say that TTP has worked hard to foster a culture of collaboration. Historically our reviews have been very positive around our collaborative culture so we are surprised to read your review and hear that this was not your experience. At TTP we pride ourselves on recruiting ‘the best candidate for the job’ regardless of ethnicity or gender. We recognise that our industry is male dominated and we have been working hard to ensure that we do our part to encourage more diversity – both within TTP and in STEM more generally – by supporting initiatives such as Cambridge LaunchPad. We have also recently launched a policy to support new parents returning to work which we hope will encourage more women to join us. We do acknowledge that we don’t always get it right and would really like to hear from you to discuss your experience further. Please contact us on recruitment@ttp.com in the strictest of confidence.
