The friendly people - your peers make it a great place to be able to be yourself, and you can build long lasting relationships here.
After being around for almost 10 years, you’d think that a company would have processes and strategy in place. Nope. Empty phrases like “We’re the best!” are often thrown around as they think it will make people feel hyped - it doesn’t - but goes to show they have zero idea what actual strategy is, and try to hide it behind these platitudes. Pretty sure no one knows what’s going on as goals and procedures seem to change as often as the wind. It’s also impossible to see any meaningful change in the products - the life will slowly drain out of you as you wonder if anything you do makes a difference. There’s no room for any creativity here, especially as a lot of management will shoot down ideas that differ from what they want. If you don’t join the toxic positivity mentality and agree “We ARE the best!”, you are dispensable. A lot of great people who were integral to the company have left. Issues in old Glassdoor Reviews are still being brought up in reviews today - it does make one wonder why after all this time, these issues are still showing up, and when will it ever change.11iTech Media Response4mo
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it. I'm delighted that you recognised how friendly our team are, and how you feel you can be yourself here. This feeling of belonging is really important to us, so I'm pleased to hear you felt this way. Thank you as well for your feedback about where you feel we can do better. Our industry is fast moving, and this does often mean that our strategy and plans need to change and adapt in order to make the most of the opportunities this presents. Creativity and difference of thought is also critical to our success and we do encourage this, so it's disappointing to hear you didn't feel this was the case. We're a positive bunch as we have a lot to be positive about, but I'm sorry that you feel this comes across as toxic positivity - I'd love to understand how you feel we can get better. I can see you're a current employee of ours, I'd really like the opportunity to have a chat with you about your feedback so please get in touch and we'll set something up. Thank you again for your honest feedback, and for all you do for iTech. Emma Baillie Chief People Officer

Initial company onboarding was very slick, and very professional. Real emphasis given on individual wellbeing and team culture to start with was incredibly supportive. The benefits were great, and you were made to feel like a real champion before your first day. The company has some incredible world experts amongst its staff. The people in the company are some of the best people you can find. There is a real charitable ethos within the company, and they run various fundraising initiatives for important charities throughout the year. The founder is a true believer in volunteering for good, and there is generous time allowance given for all staff to contribute in this area.
The company waxes lyrical about its amazing culture and values (and rightly so), but fail to explain what products the day to day job revolves around. It can be a real shock for a new joiner to discover that the companies main products centre around the online gaming (gambling) space. (On the company website, this is just one of several areas of expertise). Everything changed overnight in the summer of 2022 with decisions made at the top of the organisation, resulting in mass redundancies being proposed in September 2022. Lots of great people left the company, either because of the redundancy process, or as a knock on effect. Trust in the company leadership had gone. To add to this, the company opened an office extension around this time.5iTech Media Response8mo
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate your feedback. We're pleased that you recognised the focus we put on our culture, and the impact our team can have outside of the business through volunteering and fundraising. We're very proud of how we onboard people to the company, and how we champion a focus on wellbeing so we're also pleased that you appreciated that. We want to make sure everyone joining us understands iTech and our business, and our Talent team ensure candidates are aware of the space we operate in when discussing roles with them. We're also working on telling more of our people stories externally, to help bring to life what we do here. There were some hard choices that had to be made by the business in 2022, and these decisions were not taken lightly. As with many other companies, we weren't immune to a challenging external environment. Our collective leadership team have done their best to ensure that the restructuring process has been completed as respectfully as possible for all involved, and are working on rebuilding trust within the business after such a tough process for everyone involved. Once again, thank you for sharing your feedback. If you’d like to discuss any of your comments further, please email me directly on email@example.com. I wish you well with wherever your career has taken you next.

Benefits, People, location of office
So many changes, decision making from leadership team a bit odd.

Salary was good, but not worth the sacrifice of working somewhere like that.
Awful attitudes towards differences in thinking. Some really poor managers, where you're expected to think in the exact same way as them, or they'll turn on you (behind your back at first). Working there, you'd be better off if you were just AI... following processes to perfection is all that matters, at the cost of originality and creativity. If you're not AI-like, and are a little bit different, think a bit differently, etc... then steer well clear of this company.4iTech Media Response5mo
We appreciate you taking the time to leave us this review. Feedback is really important to us, whether it's positive or more critical, so thank you. That being said, it is a surprise to hear this feedback. As a business, we know that difference in thinking and embracing the diversity of our team, their opinions and the experiences they bring are critical to our success so it's something we encourage and champion. Our Neurodiversity Guild offers insights, guidance and ideas on how best we can embrace and encourage differences of thought. Whilst processes and procedures are important, especially in the industries we operate in, there's a balance to be struck with creativity and it sounds like we've missed the mark for you on this point. I'd like the opportunity to discuss this feedback further with you, if you'd be happy to do so please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can talk this through . Thank you again for this feedback, and I wish you all the best with your new role. Emma Baillie, Chief People Officer

- Incredible benefits - flexible working - everyone is so nice, no a**holes! - starting to get serious about strategy, think we could go far and there is a share scheme so feel invested!
- A lot of changes, feel like this is starting to calm down now but you need to be able to handle change if you join - Has been a lack of transparency in the pastiTech Media Response4mo
Thank you for your review - it's great to hear you're enjoying your time with us here at iTech Media. We've worked hard on ensuring our team understand our business goals and strategy. Increasing our transparency is an important part of this process and it's something we've worked hard on. If you have more feedback on our strategy, and the change around this, I recommend you discuss with your manager or People Partner. Thanks again!

Great benefits Lovely people Regular company trips away
Constant change for the sake of change Confused leadership Lack of joined up thinking2iTech Media Response3mo
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for us, thank you. We're really proud of the benefits we offer the team, and also our team in general - how well they work together, encourage and support each other and are all round lovely people, so it's great to see this acknowledged. Thank you also for your constructive feedback. Our industry is fast moving and always changing. That. together with our dissatisfaction with the status quo, is what sets the pace at iTech. We believe everything can be improved and we don't rest on our laurels. That ethos and the fact that we don't stand still doesn't suit everyone. Thank you again for your feedback, and we wish you all the best with your new role.

People in senior leadership do believe that they are doing the right thing. They may be misguided, but most of them have their heart in the right place.
The company talks a lot about inclusion, and whilst it's inclusive of people's gender, sexuality and background, if you don't fit the mould of the company culture - "work hard and play hard" - then you'll feel excluded and feel as though you don't belong. No amount of free snacks and social budget can make up for the way people are treated if they don't conform the same way of thinking as the leadership team. Diversity of thought and approach to work is not welcome in decision-making forums. A small group of people who all think alike make all of the important decisions. Engineering is not a key function of the company, and decisions are taken by other parts of the organisation with Engineering as the implementers rather than the innovators. In recent months, the leadership seem to be taking a leaf out of the "Elon Musk at Twitter" playbook in terms of how to "get the best" from staff. You also have to be comfortable with working in the space that the company operates in, which is generally not shared with candidates during the interview process so can be a shock to some who join.13iTech Media Response11mo
Hi, and thank you for leaving us a review. We take all feedback very seriously, good and bad, and appreciate you sharing this with us. Inclusion is important to us here, our aim is to offer an unrivalled opportunity for all Arcs to grow and belong, and we know that diversity in all senses of the word – including diversity of thought and approach – makes us stronger. We value inputs and perspective from all our talented Arcs across the business. Engineering has always been instrumental to our company’s success. Engineering leadership is represented in all of our business pillars, and as the largest chapter within the business, plays a key role in driving innovation and diversity of thought. As the company evolves, we’ve faced some growing pains in terms of technical strategy. We also appreciate that not having a CTO for some time has been challenging. With our new global Head of Engineering now onboard, and joining our Senior Leadership team, we are confident that 2023 will bring clarity, inspiration and innovation to our engineering teams. iTech is a digital marketing services company, publishing engaging content that informs and entertains a global audience across the most competitive comparison markets in the world, including iGaming, Sports Betting and Personal Finance. We want to make sure everyone joining us understands iTech and our business, and we’re working on telling more of our Arcs stories externally, to bring to life what we do here. Once again, I’d like to thank you for your feedback, and if you would like to discuss further please contact me directly on email@example.com. Emma Baillie, CPO

A very evolved culture. Comms are outstanding (CEO very approachable) and lots is done to ensure it's a great place to work. The office space is great but there's tremendous flexibility to 'work your way' too. They really look after you and everyone goes about their work with the utmost respect for one another. The conferences abroad are on another level!
Some aspects of the industry iTech operates in will be objectionable to some. For many others it won't be an issue at all. After some introspection I decided it wasn't for me. It will depend person to person.1iTech Media Response7mo
Hi, and thank you for your review - we really appreciate you taking the time to write this. We're delighted that you enjoyed being part of our culture. Our whole leadership team pride themselves on being approachable, and we make every effort to communicate well with the team so it's excellent to see this has been valued. Flexibility is important to us, as is showing our team how much we value them. We recognise that iGaming isn't for everyone. Our Talent team are transparent about the space we operate in when hiring to help potential future employees make informed choices about whether this industry is one they want to work in. We completely respect your decision that this maybe wasn't for you, but we're pleased that it seems you enjoyed your time with us overall. Thank you again for your review, and we wish you all the best with whatever comes next in your career.

Nice office, and some good people to work with.
Too many to list. The website should be reviewed for false information. They promote a great culture of belonging and thriving, when in reality its the total opposite. I did see some people describe it as a 'cult' but I thought this was just disgruntled ex-employees. More fool me. It looks great on the surface, but unless you are prepared to work in a dictatorship where you are penalised for daring to question anything, or having different ways of working, then I would steer well clear of iTech. You are expected to work long long hours, you are expected not to take leave and ultimately if your face doesn't fit, you'll be swiftly managed out of the business. This business is the most secretive place I've ever known. Its hard to know if we are doing well or not as no results are ever shown. All smoke and mirrors. I can't wait to get a new job and leave this place12iTech Media Response11mo
Hi, thank you for taking some time to review us. We take all feedback seriously, both good and bad. We’re sad to hear that you’ve had an unsatisfactory experience working here at iTech. That means that, in your case, we’ve failed somewhere along the way. I can see that you are currently a team member and so I’d strongly encourage you to come and see me or any of our senior leadership team to talk through your concerns in person to see if there’s anything we can do to help improve your experience here. We’ve done a lot to build an environment where everyone is comfortable to bring their best selves to work and share their views with our leadership teams. We have regular Peakon pulse surveys so we can understand sentiment in the business, and in addition to reviewing and responding to our Peakon survey data in real-time, our leadership teams hold listening forums where Arcs can and do share their views. Leadership Q&A sessions and regular skip level meetings, and 1:1s with our senior team are also a feature of day-to-day life here at iTech. Our most recent Peakon score of 8.6 out of 10 for ‘Freedom of opinion’ tells us that the majority of Arcs are comfortable and confident in expressing their opinions and sharing their views. A balance between work and life is important to us – none of us can perform at our best without this. Long hours are not encouraged, and we ask all Arcs to get at least 75% of their holidays booked in the diary by September. This year, we closed for 2 full weeks over Christmas in addition to our annual holiday allowance to say thank you to everyone and allow us all to recharge over the holidays. Again, I would encourage you to come and talk to me so we can discuss these and any other concerns you have. Emma Baillie, Chief People Officer
