Fast moving and productive
Escalation Manager (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London12 August 2019
Company is currently going through a re-org, including relocating roles so tensions are high. Projects and orders are still coming through at speed which has doubled the workload causing staff to leave.
Once all the changes have taken place, hopefully things will settle down.
Pros
Good benefits, Relaxed dress code, Friendly
Cons
Lack of management guidance, direction. Lack of incentives to push outside the boundaries. Dammed if you do, Dammed if you don't

Good place to work
IT Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London19 June 2018
Great place to work with some extremely knowledgeable people, brilliant working environment and culture. The organisation does some really cool things as a technology company and I was proud to work there. I learnt a lot there almost everyday. Only left as I stopped getting along with the manager who always felt the need to micro-manage me.
Pros
Free lunches

Poor team structure and lacks clear process adherence.
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Warrinton30 April 2018
The team itself are a great bunch however a lack of management of processes between legacy and new create an environment where you're stuck in the middle. When something goes wrong whatever process you followed you get the blame.
Disappointed to see such a poor environment inside a company I viewed so differently before working there.
Pros
Free fruit
Cons
Blame culture and no support

Senior Solution Architect
Senior Solution Architect (Former Employee) –  London15 February 2013
The day typically started at 9 with requests coming from Sales Executives for technical approval of small individual customer requirements. Work also proceeded on larger bids with customer meetings, bid responses and internal technical approval all required. I was also involved in learning VMWare with respect to the launch of the Claranet Cloud project and testing out the customers experience of building VM instances and protecting with a VM firewall instance. I also was part of the 3rd place team that developed a promotional video for the Claranet Cloud programme. I worked with Marketing, Product Development and Project Managers.
Pros
good team atmosphere, lots of local restaurants
Cons
9-6 not too good for long commutes
