Good enough company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Medium size company with relaxed work culture, casual dress code, cantine and cafeteria on-site with beautiful green area and lake/pond in front of offices (very nice for lunch breaks). I think it's a great company to work especially for graduate engineers where one can learn a lot about fuel cell although employe's training could be improved. Work hours are not very flexible but has shorter Friday which is alright.

Pros

Learn a lot about fuel cells technology

Cons

People are a bit reserved

Excellent Working Environment

Nice place, nice people. Technology is very good, desire to use latest tools is very good, ability to sell a product is more questionable. Definitely worth joining if they can begin to sell products and become profitable.

Pros

Good work life balance, nice office location and people

Cons

Lack of job security

Good people bad management

The people in the company are great, good social atmosphere and people are very clever and talented. This is overshadowed by the poor management who have no clear plan for the company, rarely communicate with the work force and when they do it is never clear and honest. The technology is great, however there does not appear to be a market for it and often the management "solution" is to create a market which leads to over optimism and a culture of we know best so do as we say.

Good and productive atmosphere

My first real job after graduating, and it is a great atmosphere to work in. Staff is friendly, and always willing to have a chat both work related and more social. I have gained a lot of technical knowledge during these 3 years, although I would appreciate more training courses. My presentation skills have greatly improved, as well as my report writing skills something you don't practice enough in a science degree. Career progression is often encouraged and well supported by managers and technical leads.

Pros

Nice and friendly atmosphere

Cons

Not enough training

Interesting work

8.5hr day, decent office, good working location, in university complex. Co-workers hard working and good communicators, hardest part of job is getting action from IT. Most enjoyable is working in an active busy place.

Pros

Free tea/coffee, private health, pension

Cons

Sometimes disorganised

A very poor organisation

A research & development company desperately trying to break into manufacturing & failing miserably. Management by spread sheet seems to be the motto of this confused & befuddled organisation. A fuel cells innovator it has some dubious relations with a few Japanese automotive companies & a some curious methods of supporting & financing it self & it's bloated management structure.

Pros

Free Breakfast bap every 5 weeks or so & watch new recruits introduce themselves.

Cons

Major cull every 9 months as it gets rid of it's dead wood!

Exciting R & D fuel Cell Company

Intelligent has grown dramatically in the past 6 years from approximately 50 employees to over 300 employees. IE now have a fuel cell UPP mobile/tablet etc. product about to be available in various countries. I have learnt a lot of new tasks while working at IE. I now feel its time to move on to a smaller company where I can use my skills.

Pros

Enthusiasm

Cons

Long hours
