Senior Software Engineer in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
on 21 February 2022
Repetitive work
It was a nice enough place to work but if you were liked by managers you progressed if not you didn't. There was a relatively high turnaround of staff though as they expected a lot of unpaid overtime.

A very great place to work. Okay
The support from management is excellent. Working time is good. There are opportunities to have experience in every studies and clinical trials. And has a good working team environment
Technical Support Analyst in Nottingham City Centre, Nottinghamshire

Nice colleagues but management, pay and career progession is not good.
Worked with some amazing colleagues and learnt a lot during my time.But there's very little room for progression, after applying internally for various positions, it would take a long time for the recruiting team to get back and provide feedback (Usually after a month they would reply back indicating that they decided to choose another candidate). Loyalty and experience within the company is not valued. Did not have a pay rise in 2 years. Management tend to not replace colleagues who have moved on, meaning you often get left with extra work and long hours. Management set un-realistic goals, trying to get better results with less people?! If new people do get hired, you have to train them, meaning more time away from your work - Then questions get asked.

Dare if you will
Fast paced environment: good for learning and time management skills. Work - life balance: very poor. You will be required to work early and finish very late. You will be asked to work weekends too. While managers go home early or work from whever they like. Only 2 staff during night shift: volunteers are unsafe during the night Training: no proper training, no proper trainor. Bias and favouritism: manager tend to lean on favourites.
Technical Project Director in Uxbridge

Busy, multi-study workload. Good Team spirit and support
Busy, multi-study (2-3) workload with additional . Lot's of travelling. Good Team spirit and support. Disappointing when the buy-over happened in 2017 - with little information to employees before the announcement and a rapid reundancy process.
