But other companies can be worse
Toxic senior people. I cannot speak for the rest of the organization, but in my vertical, I found several managers and senior analysts tainted by an inadequate understanding of statistics and an inadequate (or sometimes a complete lack of) technical expertise, the two core skills for the job. A belief of own intrinsic superiority, unwillingness to help, and caring more about how their work looks in the eyes of their superiors rather than what it actually is, are common. Inverted reporting pyramid. Making progress can get hard when simultaneously reporting to the line manager, their manager, and at least one stakeholder (some of whom behave as if they were my manager), all of whom have a different opinion on how/whether something should be done. Again this might not be true of the whole organization, only my bubble. Coordination. Coordination across teams that my team need to work with happens, but is not very efficient. Any larger cross team meeting is dominated by the same 2-3 of loud and opienated people, who often push for suboptimal solutions or carry the discussion away form the efficient path. It is commonly asserted that alternative opinions/solutions do not exist and that consensus is not necessary. The office. The office is modern, but nothing too fancy. People hang their coats on their chairs, desks do not raise, only engineering can get highres screens, and you don't get a mac if your boss thinks that a pc is better for you. The third floor is reasonably quiet, toilets are clean, and there are close-to-soundproof cabins with desks (albeit without screens or power outlets). None of these is, however, true about the fourth floor. Plenty of break-out spaces. 'No hot food at the desk' rule is not enforced. Perks. You do get perks like a subsidized canteen in the office, Friday drinks, free soft drinks, barista-made coffee and fruits, several social events through the year, weekly gatherings, no dress code, a pool and ping pong table, a bicycle storage in the basement, a discounted gym with a swimming pool in the same building, 4% pension contribution, some flexibility about hours and ability to work from home. Most people are approachable by simply walking to their desks and many will be willing to help. SMEs on the product team are very helpful and a pleasure working with.

There’s not much room for growth within career, and you can get much more elsewhere doing the exact same thing. Which should be good for thought. It’s a place to get as much experience as possible and go move on to the next challenge.

The worst job ever & even worse management!
If you value yourself do not join the sales department here. Poor leadership, even worse managers. A lot of graduates that think they know what they are doing when in fact they haven’t a clue. Senior management is controlling, manipulative and a lot of favouritism. Management like yes people and do not help to develop. All they care about, is their bonus. Overall one of the worst job experiences of my life.

Not for me.
People promoted internally very easily without any experience of how to manage, failure to set goals or get teams performing, and generally just winging it - very poor leadership. Needs to bring in external management to make more effective, even senior management moved through the ranks without having to perform - still not entirely sure exactly what this senior management really did. Far too many people full of their own self importance, unwilling to listen and think they know best.

A fantastic environment and vibrant culture
My time at Funding Circle was incredible. A young vibrant company that has lots of potential and the management taking care of it all is unbelievable.
