    I have been working at Webanywhere full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've worked for many companies over my 15 year career. Webanywhere is different. The company genuinely practices what it preaches because it realises that sacrificing some pennies today to do the right thing pays dividends over the long term.

    Cons

    Career path is not clear.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I worked at Webanywhere full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Throughout my career I have never felt compelled to write a review on Glassdoor, but on this occasion, I feel a sense of responsibility to help you with your decision before potentially joining Webanywhere. The people there are amazing. There is a real feeling of togetherness - they all feel each others pain and have developed strong relationships to deal with the erratic behaviour of the owner.

    Cons

    To be clear, Webanywhere is really three separate businesses under one brand. Under the Webanywhere umbrella sits, Education: Product, School Jotter - an outdated website content management system designed for schools (written many years ago) Workplace Learning, they are a reseller of a Learning Management Solution called Totara. They have no content therefore no intellectual property but have some very clever technical...

    Advice to Management

    There is no management at this organisation. The management are suppressed by the owner. As a result the management team have the best intentions at the start of their webanywhere careers but these positive steps are knocked back by the owner. They have two choices, put up and shut up or move along with their careers.

    I worked at Webanywhere full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Being honest, the manager who interviewed me at the time called me back in his own time to advise me against taking the role as he hated the place - he didn't last long. Needless to say I took the role and worked there for over 4 years. I saw the place place grow from 20+ staff to more than 100 (including Poland & US Offices). The team I worked in were great and all got on, management not so much. I got...

    Cons

    The targets are pulled out of a had. When I started it was £6k per month, when I left it was £35k per month. No one hit target every month towards the end and the whole team I worked with left over a 12 month period. Selling solutions that weren't ready to be live. Over promising and under delivering a lot.

    Advice to Management

    The MD liked to get involved and had random ideas each month - I think more to feel needed than anything else. The thing is, strong management includes employing the right people to do the role. Then trust them and leave them to it. Take on their advice and concerns I never really got on with, or agreed with the MD, but I worked for him for over 4 years for a company he built up from scratch so it can't have...

    Pros

    1. The development opportunities are great and there is a wide variety of projects to get involved in. 2. Most people are hard working and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Some staff are not easy to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Logging daily tasks, reports and daily debriefs are a waste of time. You only need one of them. Too much reporting is not good for the business...
