      Pros

      Lots of responsibility early on, management by objectives, casual and relaxed atmosphere. 40 % discounts on shoes and fashion sold through the website. Free unlimited drinks including coffee, coke, juices. Frequent team events and big company parties. Expect a fast-paced working environment with lots of things going on every week.

      Cons

      Cramped offices without air conditioning, rigid hierarchal matrix organisation. Lack of break and cafeteria areas. Loud work environment due to open plan office. Strict NDAs creates lots of rumours and speculation about salary and bonuses. Only offered 1 year contracts.

      Fluctuating Atmosphere

      Apr 7, 2017 - Software Engineer

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work/Life balance and facilities are good, more so in some offices than others Senior management seem genuinely open

      Cons

      Atmosphere really changes between offices or even teams and areas within offices. Performance Reviews are too heavily based on peer reviews so you can easily be torpedoed by a peer or someone unqualified can easily be pushed into a better position Radical Chaos means people can do things without explaining themselves (and then torpedo people who ask questions in peer reviews, as mentioned already) There didn't seem to be room for promotion
