    I worked at Victor full-time

    Pros

    A progressive company which truly tries hard to innovate itself within the industry. The company will provide new employees with a great opportunity to learn about the private aviation industry.

    Cons

    It's still a startup, therefore, the management has its ups and downs.

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

    Pros

    I have been here for 2 years and seen a small start up grow into one of the UK's leading Jet brokers. It is an exciting, fun place to work and they do reward hard working team players. I can only recommend Victor ! Even though we are considered a large company, the CEO walks past the whole office almost every morning and sais good morning and knows everyone's name. He either has a very good memory or cares for the company...

    Cons

    It has grown from a start up to one of the UK's leading jet brokers, in order to grow the company is always evolving, I can understand how change can be frustrating at times but it is all for a good reason.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding and developing current internal talent.

    I worked at Victor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    (Some) great people and a chance to make a difference, although this is vanishing as the company grows. Provides great experience and exposure to the market.

    Cons

    Top down management structure, a few individuals have been there since the start and take their jobs for granted, making it difficult for new comers to feel appreciated. Office politics will get you much further than hard work and personality. That being said, you will for sure learn a good lesson.

    Advice to Management

    Give staff more opportunity for growth (and money)so that they don't get bored and crush morale. Avoid giving preferential treatment at random.

    Pros

    Great team environment with support and opportunities offered to everyone willing to put in the effort. There's a general sense the the company is going places and that the door is open for anyone to grow in their roles and ascend if they wish.

    Cons

    Some late nights, but it comes with the territory!

    I have been working at Victor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working within the tech team, no two days are very alike. There are always new challenges and goals to achieve. The company is experiencing high levels of growth and are currently recruiting to make this growth manageable for the future. Investment in new technologies is high priority, which makes things more interesting. It's fun to be part of a company priding itself on branding and a quality consumer experience where...

    Cons

    No real 'cons' to speak of. There are a lot of changes currently going on within the company as a by product of its growth. However, this change is more fun and fluid rather than frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. With all the changes currently taking place sometimes it is easy to miss out on information, whether that is for a specific task or about the company as a whole. However, everything trickles down eventually. We're moving quickly here at Victor - but that's no bad thing. 'Keep it up' would be my advice.

    I worked at Victor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for an SME is the fast-paced nature which includes change and diversity. You're never quite sure what is going to happen next which creates excitement and never allows you to rest on your laurels. Being close to the decision making with an entrepreneur with vision and extreme attention to detail makes it a really great place to work. The people are bright, enthusiastic, supportive...

    Cons

    It is so fast-paced that it can feel a little out of control. Puts individuals under pressure - but then pressure makes diamonds!

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, take stock, focus on the foundations first!

    I have been working at Victor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working here for 4 months now as a senior engineer. Initially I was approached by the head of engineering. After a short telephone interview I was invited in for a in person visit. This ended up being a full day where I met various members of the team and got to work on a tech challenge with one of the engineers. Throughout the process I found myself really enjoying being in the office and immediately got a...

    Cons

    Hard to pick on something. This company has a positive corporate attitude. Anything considered a 'con' is very quickly resolved internally (either via training or feedback). If i had to pick perhaps I'd say the project management process has room for improvement. There has been much progress since I joined and we are really trying hard to optimise this process. The primary challenges to this are the large number of interconnected...

    Advice to Management

    Open doors, transparency, equality, can-do attitude. You've got it right. As the company grows it becomes harder to maintain such an approach. It's not impossible, and i really believe that if you carry on doing things in such a way the company will grow and flourish.
