Other people had good experience but I didn't. I had depression during my probation period which affected my behaviour, but the management didn't understand this and the simple mistakes I made in spelling for example were used against me as proof of lack of attention to details. I was stressed and trying to do my best, but the manager didn't see this. I know someone she was 10 minutes late in the morning. Someone sit close to her cheated on her and told her manager about the 10 minutes late. People gossip about each other. It felt like we are kids in school or even worse.
Pros
Restaurant on site. Two volunteering days, social events
Cons
Old mentality, people gossip about each other, they cheat on each other like kids. No understanding or support for mental health

Productive, fun, and hard working workplace. SQL is a really useful skill to have. Excel and general MS Office skills are also useful. A bit far for me to travel to work. They do not like Work From Home so much.

A Productive and competitive workplace to work in. You need to hit the ground running. One needs to be adaptable to change. Good research skills required to learn how to use new tools for analysis. SQL is very sort after.

Terrible management, lack of competence and high in arrogance. Too much politics and employee are not valued. Salary reviews only if you have a good manager, but I have nerver heard of anyone getting one.

Good work life balance, i was based in sutton which is abit remote. The technology is exciting but in a old fashioned way of working. Agile is being implemented but is in the infant phase.

Unnecessarily tight deadlines, endless reports/work plans Different business segments, so there is an opportunity of career progression Line managers manage their workers through spreadsheets, reports and daily meetings. Micro management culture, no sign of emotional intelligence Ready to invest in employees' training Work culture ok, but a lot of snitches at work
Pros
Central location, employees training, international travelling
Cons
Long hours, unnecessarily tight deadlines

Due to the longevity of staff it is difficult to progress your career. Hardest part of the job is liaising with other departments in other locations and getting issues to be progressed. Not a bad company to work for, they try hard to move with the times but often get stuck in the old ways of doing things.

Good company and nice friendly staff. Very finance driven so it appears they are short on cash, it seems any part of the business are for sale at any time. Innovative in IT due to cash and well run because of it. Good management team
Pros
Well run

Working within a Sales department I can honestly say no 2 days were the same. It was a pleasure to be a part of an amazing team. Hard working, loyal and fun is only a fraction of my experience working with Sales guys.
Pros
Incentives, nights out, competitiveness, hard work
Cons
Office politics

Generous holiday entitlement. HQ centric, so remote workers may feel isolated from the corporate culture which is focused around their Sutton offices.
