The ambition of the company is fantastic, with exciting plans in the pipeline for the product and other areas of the business. Senior management are very open about business goals and plans moving forward, and the company invites feedback about working here - which is genuinely taken on board and improvements are made as a result. My manager is nothing but supportive and encouraging and has helped me develop my skills and knowledge in a short space of time. The cultural/social side of working here is second to none - social events are organised on a regular basis and everyone is free to get involved as much or as little as they like.
Development of the product can be slow due to how much resource we have available. Some departments do work in isolation at times, but effort is being made to collaborate more, share ideas, communicate etc so we're all on the same page.

edays is a relatively small business and due to this everyone really goes out of their way to be there for each other. It also allows me to get involved in things and learn skills from areas of the business I wouldn't have the chance to get involved in if this were a larger business. edays offer flexible working and working from home which has really improved my work life balance. Most importantly I feel like I'm really making a difference rather than just being a number on a spreadsheet (which I've often felt like in larger businesses)
The software is a little dated in certain places as others have mentioned, but having worked in a lot of software companies this isn't uncommon. edays are currently modernising their whole product suite and its been exciting to be a part of that

Nice office, decent socials, good systems to use internally
Product is insane with hundreds of options per user. It's almost impossible to learn it in the timeframe given (though they'll tell you the timeframe is longer than it actually is). Constant meetings, half of them served no purpose whatsoever. Ableism is pretty rife for several employees. I know someone who got out because of it. Pretty bad pay when compared to similar companies in industry and size (I left for a £17k increase at the same level)e-days Absence Management Response3mo

We're glad that you enjoyed the office, socials and work environment, we pride ourselves on creating a great workplace for all our employees. In terms of the product itself, we understand that it is comprehensive. As a best-in-class software provider, the in-depth functionality is one of the main reasons that our customers love using edays, but on the other hand we understand that it comes with a learning curve for new employees. We aim to provide the necessary training and onboarding resources, and continually seek to improve this process. We take claims of ableism very seriously and have listened to your concerns, we are shocked to hear this and aim to provide the best possible support to all our employees. We have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination or bias and are committed to creating an inclusive workplace. To remain competitive in the industry we regularly benchmark our pay and are committed to compensating all our employees fairly for the work they do.

edays is literally an amazing company to work for, full of great people who want to work together to do well. The culture is great - the team has a really nice diverse mix of people and everyone gets along really well (some companies who pride themselves on great culture only do this because everyone is very similar). The approach to hybrid working is one of the best I've ever known; there's no arbitrary minimum number of days to come to the office, but employees are encouraged to come in regularly and collaborate, and the office is only open 3 out of 5 days so there's almost no risk of wasting a day in the office by coming in when no one else is around. The office itself is lovely and in a great location, and office days do really feel worth it, as teams share ideas and make the most of the collaborative time. There's also loads of nice social aspects to the business, from regular company-organised events to just casual pub quiz nights. It's also a very exciting company to work for. While the team is small, the ambitions feel large and there's always plenty of interesting work to get involved in. Because it's a small team, it also means that your hard work gets recognised and you feel as though you're really able to make a difference. The senior leadership team at edays are all really great people and I love the transparent approach to leading the team. We're regularly kept informed of things happening in the business and where the product is headed, which is refreshing to a lot of cloak-and-dagger companies I've worked for before. The personal development is also great. My manager is amazing and has really helped me to grow in my role in a short amount of time. I feel excited about my future career trajectory at edays.
Because it's a small team, you need to be a generalist rather than a specialist. This isn't a con for me as I've always enjoyed doing a bit of everything, but if you're someone who prefers to have set responsibilities and a more niche job role then it may not be for you. The other downside is the speed of development. While ambitions for the product are big, there's a restricted limit on how fast we're able to move on these plans because of the limited resource. This has a knock-on effect for other teams and functions, as being a SaaS business we're very much led by the product. In my opinion, the size of the development team needs tripling or quadrupling in order to allow us to really dream big.

Fast growing company trying to take on the big guys and often winning! A genuinely care for people and culture - which is not always easy in high-growth, private equity backed businesses. A brilliant and fast evolving product that helps so many companies manage a tricky challenge. The team is never afraid to take on the big challenges and find a way to make things happen, even when things look impossible sometimes. Genuine friendships come from working at Edays.
There's a very flat management structure, which means people need to take the initiative - this won't suit everyone but it works well for genuine self-starters who are happy to take on extra responsibility.

Great progression - at least in my experience.
Communication has taken a backseat based on the management change, but they are working to improve.

Unable to physically meet people, but that's Boris's fault.

Not enough development done in previous years - competitors starting to catch up

Being part of a prospering business.
Cloud based computing means we are reliant on third parties which means I cannot always directly solve certain issues myself.
