      Awesome place for ambitious minds

      Pros

      There is a density of very high talent like in no other place, and with that comes an equally unusual level of autonomy and responsibility for individuals who pass the high bar set at the interviews. The company culture, reflected on consultants' freedom, employee ownership and relatively freeform team structure is phenomenal, something I'd highly recommend experiencing first-hand. Projects are at cutting-edge both technology-wise and in terms of impact to society. The CEO and group leaders are very approachable and admiringly wise.

      Cons

      Career development is very much self-driven, which is something I personally had to adjust to. There has been a historical scepticism about externally-provided training courses which doesn't deliver to certain types of learning styles. On the other hand, a newly empowered professional development team has its eyes on this issue already. There are also extensive opportunities to learn by doing. The company culture and colleagues are very supportive of this approach.

      TTP Response

      Thank you for your comments regarding career development. We echo your thoughts and recognise that development needs are very individualised and the routes to development take many forms including on the job learning, self-learning and training programmes. One of the aspects we are currently focussing on is exploring development opportunities both internal and external, so that we can continue to help people in their career.

      Flat structure limits opportunities

      Pros

      Employee ownership and general culture of wanting to share the business success Great benefits (especially bonus, health insurance) Generally bright and intelligent staff Culture of self starters

      Cons

      Opaque pay and career structure. Your manager decides what he thinks you are worth and there is no opportunity for discussion. Flat structure allows a few managers to wield great power without any oversight or much accountability. This can lead to limited scope for individuals to grow and develop. Group leaders become single point failures in that they are responsible for driving the group's sales, technical quality, staff development/progression, project delivery and recruitment. This is too much for one person and one aspect will be neglected. Commercial success and 'talking the talk' is generally valued more highly than delivering technically valuable work. Desire to avoid any process often requires reinventing the wheel for each new project. High fee rates fit better with paper research and prototyping tasks reducing the number of opportunities to work on larger scale engineering projects.

      There's good and bad

      Pros

      Above average colleagues, probably due to the interviewing process. Some projects are truly groundbreaking and super fun! Employee ownership gives a lot of motivation. New head of HR is very dynamic and seems to truly care about employees. Company seems to be well managed from a big picture point-of-view. Possibility to learn a whole lot of different things, including soft skills.

      Cons

      Colleagues and projects can range from interesting/great to "not so great" (avoiding harsher words)/awfully dull. It's very much hit or miss, depending on the group you end up in. Way more value given to the commercial (versus technical) side when it comes to career progression, creating a perfect environment for most people to ditch the technical side to find time to evolve their commercial skills, which can be translated into "dropping your tasks onto someone else who won't say no, most often a graduate or student". A side effect is that it also creates a shortage of people doing technical work, doubling the load on the few who actually do it and who incidentally are the ones who make the company money. Reluctance to provide a shuttle from Meldreth station so that people don't have to walk/cycle in the rain and while it's freezing. It only exacerbates the problem of traffic/parking in the village/science park. It seems to be an unfortunate "I got mine, screw you" situation.

      Uniquely great place to work

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      High density of top talent to learn from, freedom to decide what to work on (vs. only "choice where possible" in similar companies), diversity of skills to develop -from technical to leadership and 'selling'-, employee ownership, working hours (compared to similarly high-achieving jobs), truly flat structure (it goes beyond hierarchy, it's cultural!), opportunity to get involved in industry-transforming projects

      Cons

      As with all companies, some hard work is better recognised than other; While you're much in control of your career path, it can feel like help is not always there to boost your career... there is an on-going effort to improve this;

      Generally positive...

      Pros

      Great environment with huge range of challenging and enjoyable projects, and brilliant team to of really great motivated individuals work in. Deliberate lack of hierarchical structure removes normal barriers to progression or self development and results in a very positive collaborative environment. Very positive steps to support employee ownership in the company.

      Cons

      Very little flexibility given by employers, despite expectation of high flexibility from the employees. Overtime and weekend working/travel etc. expected without time back in lieu. No real options for part time or working hours other than 9-6. Slightly punishing interview process - but they only seem to hire good people, so I suspect it works!

      a different kind of place

      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.
