    4. 1.0

      Chronic blaming culture.

      Pros

      - Lots of work-life balance if you can manage not working at all and start blaming others for not doing your job. - You can join the sales team if you do not know what to sell, why to sell and how much to sell for. - You can become the CEO or the global CEO if you do not know how to run a company. - You can become a program or project manager if you know how to brown nose and blame others for petty things. You don't have to deliver any projects! That's perfectly fine. - Perfect place if you want to get hired for something but are given some other task/topic to work on. - Ideal for those who don't answer their mails or messages on Teams. - Ideal for those developers who do not know how to program but are at the top of their game to blame others (and make everything a very big issue). Eg: Creating a very simple boolean resulting REST call takes 3 months of ping-pong, because the developers expect BAs to also create the sample REST call with values (but they won't accept those values). - You can get hired for something but eventually you can be anybody eg: You can be hired as a Database admin but you can rule the roost by acting, donning the cap of the CTO (ofcourse with a bit of politics and support from clueless management). - Ideal place where you can fool the management easily due to their incompetency. They don't even know what an IT admin does and why he/she is needed. - Agile mode is too foreign for you and you still want to live in the good old 90s era.

      Cons

      Lots! - You are on your own. Your manager does not have your back. - No work literally. Some of them are fully busy, the others either struggle to find some work or fake looking busy. - The Program and Project Management is incompetent, to the extent that they cannot speak to the client and get requirements by themselves. - The company works with old technologies. - Everybody wants to be called a manager. - Certain developers are not unbeknown for saying 'I am blocked' as the ticket does not have the data type for First name/Last name (asking for number of characters is reasonable but they don't ask that).

    7. 5.0

      Great training - Hands on work - Good opportunities - Flexible working

      Pros

      Fantastic training. Company provides time to get into the role and bring in external training. Hands on work - the BA role is very encompassing of the SDLC and is great exposure for an end-to-end delivery from Requirements Engineering through to Delivery. Great opportunities - opportunity to meet clients at client site, within the UK or even abroad within Europe. Flexible working - company is open to working from home and have VPN set up to do this.

      Cons

      HR team didn't come across well. Upper management seems like a closed circle.
