      Average with the potential to be really good

      Pros

      Benefits are pretty good, particularly the BUPA health insurance. Income protection and life insurance are included. Cycle to work scheme, dental are optional. Generally a stable employer. Good work life balance in general. Everyone has been allowed to work from home full time since March 2020 pretty much without exception. Return to offices where it has happened was based on expressions of interest and was well managed with consideration to people's safety. Normal bonus good + this year everyone received an additional €1000/£900 COVID bonus which was an unexpected and nice gesture of appreciation of staff. Interesting work - software products are technical, plenty of interesting Engineering challenges.

      Cons

      Several offices in the UK where leases were ending have closed permanently during COVID period. It's a bit unclear what the future holds for the other ones. UK offices are in general not well connected, so travelling to them hard without a car. Limited career growth opportunities. Within UK/Europe, pretty much all presence is via various acquisitions over the years, so we have lots of small-ish offices which each work on a single product/product group and which don't interact much. Progression is therefore basically limited to what products your division works on - not really much scope to jump to a new product team to gain new experience without a relocation to another location. Flat hierarchy means devs could stay doing basically the same sort of work for years, regardless of seniority or job title. Guess this can be positive or negative depending on perspective. Global pay freeze during 2020 because of COVID, on top of salaries being a bit below industry average for similarly qualified software engineers - more in line with normal Engineering salary progressions. Pension contributions start at 4%/6% employee/employer contribution but can be increased to 6%/8% match.

      Pros

      Great benefits, interesting technology, fair pay

      Cons

      No career growth, advancement in the org is male-centric. You pretty much need to leave and get re-hired to move up.
