Underpaying, hire and fire culture

Was here for a year and a half under an upper management team that greatly, greatly mistrusted their employees. Lunches and breaks were at strict times, no exceptions and they tracked latecomers with their key cards on the front door. They also had time trackers you had to use to prove you had worked the entire 8 hour-day.For a lot of things that usually aren't an issue, you had to write a grovelling letter to HR like explaining why you were 15 mins late, needed to WFH or even if you were sick. As my time there went on, more and more of these rules were circulated in memos. They started docking pay for any sickness without a doctors note and you had to describe your symptoms in detail if you called in sick. The turnover of staff is really high, either from people leaving or just straight up fired with no warning.There is casual dress and monthly drinks and pizza parties. It's in a nice area too and I remember a lot of work lunches and drinks.

Pros

Monthly pizza lunch, monthly drinks

Cons

Low pay, little flexibility, distant upper management

They treat the staff as irresponsible teenagers

There is no flexibility for most of the staff if you need to go to a doctor's appointment or for some other reason need to arrive later, while some people can work from home as much as they like and arrive late. The office is freezing cold in the winter, since they only use the heating during business hours, so you will work in your hat and coat until it has heated up. It's good for a year if you need the experience, but they generally don't invest or care about your development, so it's nothing long term.

A good company

I think it's a great company to start working in London. There are people from all over the world and it's a fantastic thing as you can learn about different languages and cultures. Wages are not amazing but... fine. The best thing? People who work there.

Pros

beer friday, pizza friday, nice people

Cons

wages, no windows downstairs

Honestly, Awful- only the staff make it worthwhile

My designer was irrationally fired. HR is just insane and I was unduly fired for being absent due to illness... which turned out to be cancer. I made some great friends but they treat staff like school children and think that they are disposable.

Pros

friendly people

Cons

everything else

Info

Disorganised and discriminating environment

Your work won't be overlooked as it seems the work system doesn't really exist and it seems the company always look for cheap one off human resource rather to encourage the workers to be more proactive and creative. Very closed family business charactor in paticulor religious group and it is hardly found UK nationality workers within the organisation.
