    Pros

    Over the past 5 years Shop Direct has undergone a major transformation and become a truly great place to work. Shop Direct gives you great flexibility in your working hours, including the ability to work from home (in IT at least), time to innovate (similar to Google's 20% policy, i.e. you have 20% of time to pursue your own ideas), a free gym, free bikes to get to and from work, and an on-site Costa/Grumpy Mule coffee for when you need to wake up... oh and I almost forgot, a hush room where you can go if you need a little downtime, or to focus on some work without distractions.

    I would like to see some sleep pods being introduced into the Liverpool office - the London office already has these. Also, the Liverpool office could do with some more collaboration spaces, it's started setting these up but it's not quite as cool as the London office just yet.

    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
