I must say the culture here is amazing. I made so many friends here and to this day I am still in touch with them.

It was sociable, inclusive and being in the centre of Manchester it was a fun place to be.


Work-wise, it was varied and the pace was reasonable.

Work is varied from day to day giving a broad range of experience, however due to the nature of the work you need to travel a lot, likely 80% of the time meaning little time can be spent at home or building connections with the team so the job can become lonely.

You will have to work long hours for well below the average pay and conditions that you would get with other companies

The management structure is built up of friends and family where they pay themselves high salaries and high bonuses


They bully and intimidate staff with a very high turnover


There is very low moral within the company


Its not a place to work or trust the management
Pros
N/a
Cons
No bonus, low pay, long hours, bad management

It is a good place to work, but progress is a bit stalled by the burocracy. Although a lot have been advertised the support for mature students are seriously overlooked.

Relaxed place

Staff not utilised based on their competency

No support from senior management. When you do ask for support, they deem you as incompetent and try and find ways of moving you out.
You are never thanked for all your hard work and effort.

You do not get paid for any overtime, just TOIL.
Pros
Free fruit on specific days.
Cons
Over-worked and severly under paid

Varied work but with too much focus on sending all design to be outsourced abroad. Good team ethic and culture but poor opportunities for progression.

The teams are generally young which creates a good positive atmosphere. Bureaucracy can get in the way of development though and the salaries are not always competitive.

Start about 8:30, and left about 5:30. Although when required you may have to work longer. The main office is a little quiet and dull, although this is due to it being a focus for client engagement. Satellite offices tend to be more open and enjoyable places to work. So your experience my differ depending on your team and where you are based.
Pros
Good knowledgeable people
Cons
Stressful, can work long hours

I undertook a two week work placement.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and felt as though the workplace would offer many opportunities.

However it was not long enough to gauge.

If this company is to go anywhere or be anything when it grows up, the leaders need to get their act together, stop promoting friends, look out for the best talent, quit the isolation tactics, and realise there are bigger and better companies out there that will take your staff, who continue to move onto to this day. An oddly over-confident demeanour. Some very capable Executives, some not so and wonder how those ones got to where they did?
Pros
trying to be global and some great concepts for the future
Cons
Lack of collaboration and not people orientated

They run various staff engagement programmes such as Quest that allow you to go abroad for a week etc. The work life balance is great; you can work from home; there is a lot of flexibility. In London office, there is a free bar every Wed and Thu 4-7pm; management take turns to serve the beers. They work on high profile projects. For me personally, it is everything that I wanted when I joined. The senior leadership team do not throw their titles around unlike some organisations where directors expected to be bowed down to.
Pros
Flexibility, staff mobility, great perks, and good leadership
Cons
IT a bit outdated - laptops chunky / not touchscreen and desktop monitors small
