    I worked at Trendzer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A good level of training was given by my line manager when I started the job

    Cons

    An ambitious company they may have been, but it was one which was completely unprepared to spend in any kind of meaningful way to achieve this without asking staff to perform miracles No plans in place to replace important members of staff when they left - the workload was simply shifted to those that remained and the pay was so poor that it was difficult to see how anybody below management level enjoyed their job Obnoxious...

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company is liquidated, leaving dozens of staff and plenty of customers in the lurch at extremely short notice, I pity any of the staff who have the misfortune of working for any new organisations you set up to fill your days. Some of the management were reasonable enough that they'd make adequate middle-managers in a larger organisation, but certain people should really take a step back into the real world...

    I worked at Trendzer full-time

    Pros

    The teams were small, quite a lot of younger people, and we've gotten pretty close. My direct manager was very pragmatic but overall a nice person. I was able to develop my skills a lot. It was nice to work for a small company with international relations. Working for Trendzer has been a learning experience in both a good and a bad way.

    Cons

    Oh man, where do I start? Many decisions regarding the platform and customer care were made by senior management staff in the UK, hardly using input from people that actually work on the platform and speak to the customers. There was little flexibility regarding working hours and workplaces. UK policies were also used for Dutch employees, even though some policies did not fit Dutch work culture at all. The line "This...

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and transparent, and treat your employees, customers and business partners better. Do not start a new company unless you change all policies.

    I have been working at Trendzer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Personal and professional development is both encouraged and nurtured. - Cool platform to work on - Lots of support within your role - Lateral hierarchy allows for ownership of your role - Fun, laid back place to work!

    Cons

    - Small company at the moment, but growing and expanding quickly. - Have to operate within the platform so some limitations on the role.

    I worked at Trendzer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Trendzer have shaped my career for the future. I am very confident to apply my skills and training I have acquired to new opportunities in other business to business areas. Management are always on hand to help, encourage and train you when it's needed. They also provide great constructive feedback so you can adjust and learn from any areas picked up on quality control.

    Cons

    Administrative duties are a part of any job. There are a lot of systems to learn and administration required on a daily basis. With any sales position you have to plan you day, week and month. Fail to plan and you will plan to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training and coaching.

    Pros

    There is no limit in what you can do at Trendzer. As a small company, with dynamic leadership, there is plenty of opportunity to influence direction and really make a difference while progressing your career. If you are talented and willing to work, you will be very successful. As someone who joined the business as an Admin Assistant and went on to head up the largest department within the company, I can certainly vouch...

    Cons

    Tight deadlines and changing demands of channel partners can take its toll on even the most hardened employees – but I guess that comes with building a very successful business.

    I worked at Trendzer

    Pros

    Although I was only with the company for just under 2 months I would recommend it as a place of work to anyone. All the people are amazing and very welcoming and I was made to feel a part of the team from day one. While at Trendzer I was taken out for a meal courtesy of management and also treated to pizza for managing to hit our targets which really showed us the appreciation of our hard work.

    Cons

    I honestly have nothing bad to say about the company and had a great time working for Trendzer

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the company forward. I feel Trendzer has the potential to become a leading company in the CMS world and keeping the team small is a great way of keeping morale high and the service offered personal. Thanks for the experience

    I have been working at Trendzer full-time

    Pros

    The people working at the coal face are great. We have been through so much together we have formed some really close bonds. I enjoyed the work and the direction the company appeared to be going. My direct manager whilst being a bit of a jobs worth is not a bad person.

    Cons

    This is a new company formed from the ashes of RSTO Ltd. Those now directly in charge of the department are sadly way out of touch and have little or no idea how to manage the department or the people within it. We have been told many outright lies which we receive no apology for but instead expected to work and should be "grateful" that we have jobs. I can assure you most of us would have preferred redundancy as this...

    Advice to Management

    This business could go far. Dont just believe everything your "management team" say to you. People want to work here but have now been pushed so far that this company is no longer a place I wish to have on my CV let alone have a career.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. All change can be challenging and we certainly understand that new directions and remits, even if temporary, don't always work for everyone. Thanks for the positive sentiments on the team you have been working with and the fact ...
