      Operates more like a start up

      Pros

      Brilliant team, where you can have the opportunity to learn a lot of different things, grow with the company and make a meaningful contribution. There's a lot of trust within the global team, plenty of flexibility, everyone is keen to learn and help each other and opinions are always listened to. Loads of responsibility and total trust from early on. Sense of purpose is clear, well lead, team focused. Early exposure to senior people, both internally and at customer organisations.

      Cons

      Like in any growing company experiencing huge change, there's occasionally some uncertainty and last minute changes to adapt to, so sometimes processes aren't ideal but it's down to you to improve anything you want to improve.

      Pros

      This is a company that's transforming and on an exciting journey to creating a true champion in its space. Lots of opportunities for growth, clear vision from management for where we're headed, and supportive new shareholders. Strong company values and great people to work with.

      Cons

      Definitely fast paced, so you need to be comfortable working in an adapting environment.

      No salary increase once again

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Sense of team spirit amongst employees in the trenches Approachable top management Opportunities to self train

      Cons

      Salary has stood still since the first private equity buy out in 2014/2015 with below inflation or zero adjustments since then despite the company performing very well financially. Also other benefits are poor in comparison to the market and it seems like the owners believe they can treat highly skilled staff as expendable commodities.

      High rates of redundancies

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Met some great people. Nice office. Free parking.

      Cons

      Software is very old and dated. Working on their platforms won't do any favors for your career. Lots and lots of redundancies. It seemed every other month of so there was a meeting to inform us another department were going. In the end our department was made redundant. I know people who have worked there since and sure enough they were all made redundant at some point. This is clearly a pattern. Ideally they should be bringing in temporary contractors whenever they land new work but suspect they rinse and repeat for profit margins.

      Great colleagues but awful C-Level decisions

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great colleagues. HR/People team trying their best to make people feel included.

      Cons

      Some awful decisions at C-Level. The decision to move to Dynamics will go down as the worst decision ever made at Unit4. No one, apart from the CEO, wants it and people feel totally ignored in the decision, particularly marketing where a lot of what they do today that works well, just won't work anymore. It is already taking so much time and focus for no obvious benefit. Lots of unhappy colleagues, a number of people either leaving or wanting to leave as a direct result.
