    I worked at Tribal Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Quite difficult to say; some roles have reasonably good pay.

    Cons

    I was employed in the HR team so had good insight into how this Company behaves and manages people. After more than 10 years in HR in various companies, I can confidently say I have never worked for an organisation that has such significant problems with staff morale, staff grievances, communication, integration between departments and leadership. This is not a Company that treats people well - I've seen a lot of poor leadership during my years in HR but at Tribal, I was horrified by the sheer volume of grievances from staff and poor decision making in relation to people.

    My advice is to think very carefully before accepting a role with Tribal; jobs can be hard to come by but this is not a nice Company.

    Pros

    Highly diverse range of activities day-to-day.
    Forward looking company for sales and markets.
    Great people to work with.
    A great place to learn new skills so long as you put in the effort yourself.

    Cons

    Too many activities without adequate management.
    No project management for concurrent tasks.
    Line managers do not have enough time to actively manage their teams.
    Too many different requests with conflicting priorities makes the day-to-day job occasionally stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a PMO and get all the projects resourced and tracked correctly.
    Allow managers to manage rather than seconding them to high profile tasks and leaving their teams bereft of strategic direction.

    I worked at Tribal Group

    Pros

    Nice bunch of talented people
    Training and development: not so much in terms of qualifications, but rather the opportunity to learn new software and gain experience, which is vital for career progression
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    We felt disengaged from the company as a whole: that was good in some ways, but not so in others.

    Salary didn't always reflect the success of the company: there were a lot of salary freezes, office and team changes and overall cutbacks during the bleak times and things didn't really change after new contract wins and improved market conditions. Similarly, as one improved their skills and ended up doing more to help the company, it wouldn't show in their pay. Aside from slight cost of living increases, things didn't change between joining with considerably less experience and three years later, when I was doing a lot more specialist work.

    Perks: the online scheme seemed to be designed to dissuade or at least it just targeted a particular niche (in other words, it wasn't useful at all).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work out where you are going, recruit accordingly and value your staff.

    I have been working at Tribal Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel.. Can be left to own devices for the most the time. Due to the lack of management at the office - can pretty much get away with murder.

    Cons

    No management. No training. Terrible team communication. Lots of office politics to contend with... Will happily expect staff to work until the late hours because of staffing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ actual managers.

    Continual downsizing/cutbacks have created a company with little true integrity

    I worked at Tribal Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some really interesting contracts and work.
    A pool of talented people in some areas.

    Cons

    Poor middle management. When people are promoted to positions for which they lack the necessary ability, the company do not address the fundamental problems
    No CPD (continuing professional development) despite repeated promises.
    Lack of honesty about company plans. Sudden redundancies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your staff, value them and invest in them. It will reap much greater rewards in the longer term than short-term short-sighted profits.
