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

    Pros

    1) Line management trust people, (2) the company has a *real* 10% program for developers, (3) lots of opportunity to improve software, tools and processes, (4) allowed to try new technology, tools and frameworks, (5) the team is really friendly and sociable! (6) staff discount is great!

    Cons

    1) Salary isn't great for the kind of people they expect (I only took the job cos it was so close, but really glad I did for other reasons now), (2) some people are expected to work way over there hours, (3) standard working hours are 40 a week - longest I saw when I was looking for a job

    Advice to Management

    Give the people under you more support, stop expecting people to work overtime for no pay when the pays already not great, and if you really want to keep the good people - act like it!
