Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei LateRooms.com (Über 5 Jahre)
Great work life balance - flexible start times, ability to work from different locations
Opportunities to learn for everyone, good career development for those wanting to learn new skills or take a total new career path, promotions within strengthen possibilities for those wanting progress,
Collaborative culture is promoted across IT everyone is willing to get involved and help out. I have read reviews calling out bullying/sexist I have never once experienced this in the environment I work in. The CTO does have a close team with the IT SLT (wouldn’t exactly call them yes men for starters their not all men) but I have always found the team approachable and reasonable when I have needed their input. The CTO has an open door policy as does the CEO it is a very open and relaxed environment where people pull together to achieve common goals - a rarity in my experience of IT!
Ideas are listened to and taken on board for anything from new initiatives to improvements. No blame is portioned if ideas don’t pay off; we fail fast, learn and move on.
Very social group of people always willing to grab a drink after work or sort out a team lunch, people genuinely work to keep the atmosphere positive and upbeat. CTO & IT SLT try to show the teams they are valued as much as possible especially during periods of change.
Pay is good but it also depends on what you value in your workplace as there are far more benefits than just your wage; dress down, culture and atmosphere, autonomy in your role, decent office location, tea & coffee and the people.
Promotions are deserved and not allocated to favoured staff like in some places.
certain people (some in management) dont have great self awarness and dont understand that they can come across as insensitive/negative but luckily this is only a handful of staff it would just be nice to see this more actively managed/developed.
Rat an das Management
communication tends to lag behind the gossips; leadership need to work on being more agile here - it doesnt have to be perfect but get it out there before the gossips do! (Brave & Decisive?)
Ich habe mich über eine Vermittlungsagentur beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 1 Tag. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2013 bei LateRooms.com (Manchester, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).
Pair programming exercise with a 30 min time limit, 1 to 1 interview to discuss your development experience focusing primarily on how much unpaid out of hours self training you did per week and how much Test Driven Development experience you had. There was also an emphasis on peer pressure to attend regular weekend developer TDD conferences (in London) again unpaid and expected to be self funded as far as entrance tickets, hotels etc.
