Principal Application Consultant in Remote

On balance - goodThey are owned by a venture capitalist, with the implications plain.There are many individuals who are excellent to work with. Very helpful and make the job enjoyable. However in the last year, the collaboration isn't as strong as it was. Line management seem understanding caring and supportive. Political agenda's do seem to exist - but it really isn't that bad. They have recently set up a Diversity and Inclusion function - applaud the motives and hope to see the results soon. I enjoy most of my time working here.

Stressful and miserableOnce described to me as “the McDonald’s of the IT world” if you want to get your foot in the door, this is a good place to start for a year.Currently junior employees are getting paid more on a base rate than more senior employees, which the company keeps blaming on COVID for the lack of increase of pay for their longer standing employees.Somehow they are continually advertising for positions, yet we remain understaffed. The support teams are not respected by other departments, and are often left to deal with issues that are way beyond their remit.The company is very sales focused, and so there will be little to no recognition of a job well done. The work culture is a weird mix of highly stressful for those who wish to work hard, whilst also little to no ramifications for doing no work.

Work elsewhere for ITThe company was great when I joined, now they have just continued to go downhill. Key members will leave and the company wont have any intention of trying to retain them, they don't have much time to try and impart their knowledge which has a knock-on effect. They hire new starters on a higher wage than current senior staff. When internal surveys go round for the company, they never action all the negative and only bring up the few positive points that are pulled from the rsults. All in all, the company is a joke and should open their eyes on how employees feel about the company and actually try and keep the employees that are keeping support going, instead of not caring and complaining when they leave. If you can find a job elsewhere, take it!

Good place to work exceptTeam leader in warehouse has jo clue. Shouting across factory to tell you made a mistake and when you speak back they sack you. Great place but shame about the team Leader

Fast pacedThe job was fast paced but the support teams were the best that I worked in. The culture of the business is very professional but modern. The area I worked in was relentless every day but rewarding at the same time

Interview is easy
Process takes about two weeks
Interview process has changed massively since I started. Now they host 'assessment days' for service desk/1st line support positions, expect weird questions and team exercises.
