Why would you ever leave?
Product Designer (Current Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 11 March 2019
I don't often feel the need to leave reviews - especially positive ones - but being an employee at FreeAgent has driven me to give feedback. More than anything, to say thanks for making it such a brilliant place to come to work every day, and for anyone thinking of applying - do it.
I've not had the pleasure of working with so many different skillsets and abilities before. While here, you'll be supported, welcomed and encouraged to have your say at defining the product.
The hierarchy of the company structure is unique too. Being very shallow, you are never far away from having a direct, meaningful conversation with one of the co-founders about an idea you have. This is something that I've not personally had before, with management being the ones that make every decision, ignoring the "minions" beneath them.
The overall culture within FreeAgent has so many benefits, but to list a few that matter most to me:
• Regular 1:1's with your line manager(s)
• Brilliant community across the whole company
• Fantastic, inclusive communication means your opinion gets heard
• Great snacks, coffee and drinks
• Excellent benefits
• Doesn't feel like work
Overall, I'd not change anything about the place. :)
Friday lunches, regular feedback, meaningful input
I didn't start soon enough :)
