    Great, positive, relaxed working environment. The office is chilled, fun and looks nice. Great amenities, and perks!

    Cons

    At the moment, it's a small office, not enough desks, but this is being addressed, and we know we're moving into a bigger office in 6 weeks time.

    Advice to Management

    More vegan choices in the free coffee and snacks are.

    I worked at Wiggle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing friends I made there

    Cons

    Team leaders are the worst....dont care about your health only the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    team leaders and shift managers need to be sorted out due to ignorance of risk assessments and medical issue. Also hateful comments towards colleagues if they make the slightest mistake. Didnt feel comfortable with an injury because it would be ignored and they would force you to do the task anyway!!

    Pros

    A caring company for people with mental health issues.
    Who will do there best for you as long as its genuine.
    The job its self is good and most people are great.

    Cons

    Due to the Employment/consumer market out there wages are low and shifts keep changing.
    But there are much worse company's to work for and I have worked for them.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your employees and they will look after you, and the company.Creating a company that no one wants to leave and people will be putting there name down to join.

    "Not really the happy place it appears to be."

    Pros

    It's the company you want to love. Staff are very friendly and helpful (up to a point). Sadly the best developers including some who showed real leadership have now left.

    Cons

    The fine grading of developers is ridiculous. Very frustrating for experienced and innovative programmers who are blocked by those higher in rank who have a very narrow approach and limited knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Take your blinkers off and evaluate people according to their real potential. There are too many sound bites and empty words - you are running more than a shop. When things go wrong don't just find someone to blame, get to the real reasons behind it, which often proves to be systemic.

    I have been working at Wiggle full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible company and with a very open attitude to employment. Very modern in all ways and a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are actually no cons that I can really think of, being really picky I would say its 40 hours a week but that isn't really an issue for me

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to keep moving in the direction you are and continue to pursue the values. The company is growing very fast, don't lose the values and friendly environment!
