    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at The Very Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a developer I have had full autonomy and the chance to constantly learn and grow. Here I am expected to come up with the new and innovative ideas that keep us ahead of our competitors whilst seeing them through from inception to testing and deployment. Current projects I am working on involve artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud and infrastructure as code. All really cool stuff :)

    Cons

    When I started I did quite a bit of travel between London and Liverpool

    Advice to Management

    Stop investing money in legacy technology
